An autopsy on the body of Chicago chef Charlie Trotter showed no signs of trauma or foul play.  However additional test will be needed to determine a cause of death.

According to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office, an autopsy was conducted Wednesday on Trotter who died Tuesday at the age of 54.

The Medical Examiner has ordered more tests including toxicology analysis.

Those tests are expected to take 6-8 weeks.

Trotter was brought to Northwestern Memorial’s emergency room in cardiac arrest and pronounced dead shortly before noon Tuesday.  He was as famous for his personality as he was for his culinary skill.

    Gee, wonder why foul play was suspected in the first place?
    All he did was set up a bunch of snooty and snotty places where he mistreated employees and overcharged customers for crappy food.
    And threw those kids out of a property that he promised they could use for their art show.
    Such a nice man…
