New details are coming to light about the cause of Charlie Trotter's death, as the Tribune's Mark Caro is reporting that the famed deceased chef had an inoperable brain aneurysm. Caro also reports that Trotter had a history of strokes and seizures, was told not to fly, and quotes his friend and sommelier Larry Stone calling it "a time bomb."

The autopsy is happening now, according to the Cook County Medical Examiners office.
