French officials have just released a few new, important details about the scene they found in that hotel room where Anthony Bourdain died on Friday.

Prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny revealed to the media a few important pieces of information on Saturday and confirmed that there were no indications anyone entered Bourdain’s room prior to his death, and there was no sign of foul play involved.

Beyond that, the prosecutor also confirmed that Bourdain died in the bathroom of his hotel by suicide, and that the travel TV host used the belt from his bath robe as the device to hang himself.

Bourdain’s body is now undergoing toxicology tests; officials want to know if the Parts Unknown host was on any medications, drugs, or alcohol at the time of his death.

But the biggest news is about that hotel room — and the belt used in the hanging — as it seems to confirm what was readily apparent from the start: Bourdain, sadly, died by suicide.
