    Does anyone know if it was autoerotic Asphyxiation, the same thing that killed actor David Carradine?

    • Jay Cardon says:

      Marshall Street Most definitely assumed that “scenario” with Kate Spade! Come on, “door knob?” Look up, Autoerotic Asphyxiation, one method is tying oneself to the doorknob. Robin Williams also comes to mind.

    • Wes McGee says:

      Marshall Street That is a fair question. I was a police officer for 25 years and worked several auto erotic accidental deaths. Without going into detail these deaths are immediately recognized and for the families insurance purposes we always filed them as accidental.

    • Stu Mack says:

      he pulled a Robin Williams .

    • Left Is Best says:

      Marshall Street – No, it was NOT and I’d suggest you keep theories like that to yourself. A history of major depression and a suicide note, fully clothed.. etc. Just stop it with the fucking bullshit can you?

    • Nick Slouka says:

      No, he was not into that!

      MEGA 2020 do you know what a fucking joke is, or is there no free speech in your right wing community. RETARD

    • MEGA 2020 says:

      Ahh, did I trigger you with what I said Atharva. Go to your safespace and hug your teddy, it will be okay. I don’t think saying if you ever made food for someone you would poison him is a joke. It may be in your mentally ill mind, but sane people wouldn’t agree with you. The retarded people are you people that take what someone says and twist the words in your mentally ill minds to feed your hatred. Good luck with that, lol.

  7. Quang B says:

    So many people look happy/fine on the outside but so tormented on the inside that they feel it’s better to take their own lives than to seek out help! Rest in peace Anthony!

    • Quang B says:

      Gunsquawk 44 why don’t you make me you fat ass? I don’t have to be a psychologist to see what’s going on in the world. Take your head out of your ass and see what’s going on in the world! Suicide rate is up 30%!

  12. Johnny Tang says:

    Just browsing before going to sleep and saw this… I can’t believe… I’ve always been a fan and love all of his series even before CNN and was going to use one of his videos for a report about a country next week. Oh Anthony, rest in peace and thank you for everything. Much love from Taiwan! Will never forget your visit.

    Health is the true wealth.

    Triste.Gostava muito do Anthony.Que Deus o receba de braços abertos.

  15. tillallareoneluv says:

    I find it intriguing that some hangings are scrutinized before concluding suicide, while others are “well, that’s that”.
    No wild conspiracy theories here, but I think we need to see exactly what the content of his latest recorded episodes were and his future scheduled locations and topics.
    Again, respectfully to his family ND fans, suicide is thousands of times more prevelant (and likely) than conspiracy, but the velocity at which the investigation was conducted bothers me on some level.

    • Left Is Best says:

      tillallareoneluv – Let’s not go overboard, eh? There are obviously reasons why they’ve drawn the conclusions they have. You do nothing to honour his memory or respect his family and friends by engaging in wild and utterly contemptible conspiracy theories. If that’s what you want, head on over to Alex Jones or FOX.

    • tillallareoneluv says:

      Left Is Best dude, read again what is written. I find it curious. Anthony m began to become much more politically opinionated and his profile continued to rise. Again, I go with probability. It is much more probable that this is just what it appears. In fact, 1000s of times greater. But I remember the great saying : it’s not what you know, but what you “know” that happens not to be so, that gets you in trouble.

    *kate spade & Anthony Bourdain Unbelievable*

  17. Gabriel Guevara says:

    Grew up watching his show, I remember whole evenings watching No Reservations back in School. I always thought about Anthony as a real badass. These news truly hit me hard.
    Coincidentally, with all the recent passings of stars like Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington, etc., for some reason I had to think of Anthony a few months ago and how I wish something like this would never happen to him. And then out of nowhere, reading Google News, I see that he hanged himself, like a nightmare come true.
    Lost for words to be honest… I don’t think anyone will be able to replace the niche he filled on TV and in our hearts.
    You will be missed Tony, I never ended up being a chef like you once inspired me to be, but you certainly made me appreciate food and travel on a whole different level.
    Rest in peace, you deserve it.

    I have bipolar 1 rapid cycle. And I’m in recovery from meth addiction and alcoholism. Its rough I tried attempting suicide a few times. But with therapy and meds I’m finally feeling a little relief myself .

  19. Alan Parker says:

    If Anthony Bourdain teaches us one thing, it’s to engage and respect people of all backgrounds, find common ground, disarm them with open charm, and seek out what they truly think. This seems to be a long-lost art and a key to depth of human character. RIP

    • A. R. 432 says:

      The Guy Chris I respect your opinion and point of view, but do not agree at all with you. He had the right to his feelings. His daughter will have to live her life, just like the rest of us do. It is selfish to force someone to stay alive when they don’t want to. You were not living his life, so you don’t understand and will NEVER understand what he was going through. And no, by killing yourself you are not a coward. Have a beautiful life and I wish you lots of love.

    • A. R. 432 says:

      A lot of people don’t understand that many don’t kill themselves because they are depressed. Some of us are not afraid of the unknown and we just can’t wait to explore it. That doesn’t mean we are cowards. We just want to know what’s after this life.

      Bullshit he hated white people. Best thing he ever did was neck himself
