A statement released by the Cook County Examiner's office Monday revealed that Charlie Trotter died of a stroke.

"Trotter died of a cerebrovascular accident (stroke) as a consequence of hypertensive arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease (high blood pressure)," said Medical Examiner Dr. Stephen Cina in the statement. "Neither drugs nor alcohol contributed to his death. Additionally there is no scientific evidence to indicate that recent travel contributed to his death, though there was evidence of a prior stroke."

Trotter, who had been very involved with the Oak Park-based Hephzibah Children's Association along with his wife Rochelle, died earlier this month in his Lincoln Park home. The world famous chef was 54-years-old.
