It wasn’t like Anthony Bourdain to skip a good meal. When the star of “Parts Unknown” didn’t come down from his hotel room for a rustic French dinner Thursday night, it was the first sign something was very wrong.

“We thought it was strange,” waiter Maxime Voinson told The New York Times Saturday, recalling Bourdain’s no-show the night before his suicide.

The article goes on to state the following:

…[L]ocal prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny said Saturday…that the suicide appeared to have been an “impulsive act.”

Still, by many accounts, including [Eric] Ripert’s (Bourdain’s close friend), Bourdain had not been himself.

There was exhaustion — and darkness.

Gladys Bourdain recalled Ripert telling her that “Tony had been in a dark mood these past couple of days,” Ripert told Bourdain’s mother on Friday according to the Times.

Anthony Bourdain had reportedly kept a brutal work schedule filming “Parts Unknown” in the months before his death and was “absolutely exhausted,” a source told People.

“His travel schedule was grueling, and he often seemed quite beat-up from it, as anyone would be,” said the source, described by the magazine as having worked closely with Bourdain in the past year. “He’d put everything into the shoots and then go back to his room to isolate.”
