Charlie Trotter's Wife Comments on His Condition

New, 1 comment

charlie-trotter-rip.jpgAfter Chicago chef Charlie Trotter's sudden death earlier this week, his wife Rochelle Trotter has released a statement concerning his medical condition in the days before his death:

In January Charlie was treated for a seizure as a result of an aneurysm which was discovered at that time. His doctors prescribed the proper medication to control seizures, his blood pressure and high cholesterol and he was seen by a number of medical experts who cleared him to travel.

He returned home from his most recent trip Monday night without incident. The autopsy indicates that his travel is not connected to his death. This is obviously a difficult time as we are still processing our grief. As his family and I focus upon putting Charlie's body to rest, we hope that this will settle the inaccuracies that have been reported and we can move forward in honoring Charlie's life on Monday. We ask for your patience and continued respect of our privacy.

An autopsy earlier this week proved inconclusive.
