Rochelle Trotter, Charlie Trotter's widow, released a statement today in order to clarify and shed light on the iconic chef's death and his recent health. The statement:

"In January Charlie was treated for a seizure as a result of an aneurysm which was discovered at that time. His doctors prescribed the proper medication to control seizures, his blood pressure and high cholesterol and he was seen by a number of medical experts who cleared him to travel.
He returned home from his most recent trip Monday night without incident. The autopsy indicates that his travel is not connected to his death. This is obviously a difficult time as we are still processing our grief. As his family and I focus upon putting Charlie's body to rest, we hope that this will settle the inaccuracies that have been reported and we can move forward in honoring Charlie's life on Monday. We ask for your patience and continued respect of our privacy."
