Cause of death unknown even after autopsy

Sylvester Stallone’s 36-year-old son Sage has been found dead in his flat in Studio City, near Hollywood, on Friday, provoking assumptions by some sources that he had died from drug overdose.

An autopsy was conducted on Sunday morning, reported Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office spokeswoman Cheryl MacWillie. She added, “But the results from the toxicology screening will probably not be back for at least 10 weeks.” His room was littered with cigarette butts, beer and ‘two drawers filled with various pill bottles’, a police source told celebrity news website TMZ. However, no sign of trauma could be found and there was no suicide note.

Sage Stallone’s lawyer, George Braunstein, who informed that the body had been found by a housekeeper, told E! television network, “He was very creative, energetic and very full of life. We were just joking about how he was going to get married and have a fun marriage. There was nothing dark or depressing, no problems, certainly no financial problems.”

“Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son, Sage Stallone… His loss will be felt forever,” stated the star’s publicist, Michelle Bega, who added, “His compassion and thoughts are with Sage’s mother, Sasha,” referring to Sasha Czack, the star’s first wife.

After Stallone’s split from Sasha, Sage, the eldest of Sylvester’s five children from three marriages, grew distant from his father, but the relationship was restored after the pair played father and son in Rocky V in 1990. The pair also acted together in the 1996 movie Daylight.

36-year-old Sage has acted in 13 big-screen roles and produced on three films, including the 2006 short Vic, which he also wrote and directed.
