Charlie Trotter had aneurysm, seizures, wife says

November 7, 2013 (CHICAGO)

Trotter was declared dead Tuesday at a Chicago hospital after paramedics found him unresponsive in his home. An autopsy ruled out foul play or trauma as a cause of death, but it can't be fully determined until further tests are conducted.

In a statement released to The Associated Press, Rochelle Trotter says doctors had prescribed the "proper medication" and that medical experts had cleared Charlie Trotter to travel.

Trotter had recently returned to Chicago from Jackson Hole, Wyo., but Trotter's wife says the autopsy indicated the trip did not contribute to his death.
