Earlier today we told you about a possible cause of death for chef Charlie Trotter (related to an inoperable brain aneurysm) relayed by a former sommelier and friend of the chef. But this just in - the official autopsy was performed today and found to be inconclusive, although foul play and trauma have been ruled out. From the Tribune: "The Cook County medical examiner's office said in a statement that it will conduct additional tests, including a toxicology analysis, to try and determine a cause of death. The results could take 6-8 weeks. The family told police that Trotter was taking medication for seizures, high blood pressure and high cholesterol."

Stay tuned for more updates as further details emerge.
