Sylvester Stallone’s son Sage Stallone, 36 was found dead by a housekeeper yesterday in his home. There was no suicide note or foul play, but it looks like prescription pills may have been to blame in his death, although it will be a few weeks to determine an actual cause of death via the toxicology tests. TMZ is reporting that Stallone may have been deceased for a few days (3-4) before being found. He allegedly lived like a hermit with his room “littered with junk” like cigarette butts, beer and soda cans, and food. Sylvester Stallone is said to be devastated over the death of his son.
There were no signs of foul play or trauma in the death of Sage Stallone, whose sudden passing at the age of 36 left his father Sylvester Stallone devastated, a publicist and investigators said.
Sage Stallone was found unresponsive in his Los Angeles home Friday by an employee and a relative, and police arrived and confirmed Sage Stallone was dead, Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said.
“Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son,” publicist Michelle Bega said in a statement. “His compassion and thoughts are with Sage’s mother, Sasha.”
The cause of death was not clear.
No suicide note was found, Winter said, though prescription bottles were recovered from the home on Mulholland Drive in the Studio City area. Winter could not say what kind of medication bottles or how many, and whether they had a role in the death.
Winter said an autopsy will be performed in the next few days and investigators will look into Stallone’s medical history, but a cause of death was likely to take several weeks while toxicology tests are performed.
