Chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain, best known as host of CNN’s award-winning show “Parts Unknown,” was found dead in a suicide, the network said Friday.
Bourdain was found unresponsive in his hotel room in France, where he had been working on an upcoming episode of the show, CNN said. It said close friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert made the discovery.
It was the second reported celebrity suicide this week. Fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead Tuesday in an apparent hanging in her New York apartment.
