Canadian TV Chef Anthony Sedlack Dead at 29

Food Network Canada / Scripps Networks(VANCOUVER) -- No foul play is suspected in the death of Anthony Sedlak, an award-winning Canadian celebrity chef and television host, North Vancouver police said today. He was 29.

Sedlak, the host of Food Network Canada’s The Main and a judge on Family Cook Off, was found dead Friday in his North Vancouver apartment at about 7 p.m. PT. The exact time of death is still to be determined.

Sedlak’s representative Pamela Singh told ABC News that she was unaware of any health problems in his past. She said that more information regarding his death will be available later this week.

The North Vancouver police confirmed to ABC News that there will be no criminal investigation. It is unclear whether an autopsy will be beneficial to the investigation, a representative for the British Columbia Coroners Service said today.

Kevin Porter, the general manager of the Toronto Don Valley Hotel & Suites, had been working with Sedlak on reinventing the restaurants and room service menus at the hotels for the past four months. He said Sedlak had displayed no sign of health problems.

A statement from the Sedlak family thanks his fans for their love and condolences. A private funeral service will be held for Sedlak in Vancouver.

Celebrity Chef Has Car Stolen

PRNewsFoto/Knuckle Sandwich(SAN FRANCISCO) -- A 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo sports car owned by celebrity chef and Minute to Win It host Guy Fieri was stolen from a San Francisco car dealership in a daring heist early Tuesday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Investigators say a thief climbed onto the dealership's roof and then rappelled into the showroom using climbing gear before driving away.

The car is worth more than 200 thousand dollars. It can reach speeds upwards of 200 miles per hour, so getting away may have been easy, but blending in in a bright yellow Lamborghini could turn out to be the real challenge.
