's son, Sage Stallone, was found dead in his apartment and contrary to beliefs, he did not commit suicide.
Sage was found dead in his apartment on Friday and it is still not clear what the cause of death was. As soon as the news of his death spread, everyone started speculating that he committed suicide. However, that is not the case, as authorities have reported that Sage did not commit suicide.
Sage Stallone's attorney and friend, George Braunstein, had maintained from the beginning that Sage did not commit suicide, as he was not the sort to do so and neither he had any issues.
"I never knew him to drink alcohol," George Braunstein told E! News. "I think it was either natural causes or a terrible accident. I don't think it had anything to do with drugs, he wasn't that kind of guy. He wasn't anyone trying to take his life."
Sage Stallone was discovered dead by his housekeeper at his LA home on Friday and his death was immediately notified to the authorities. When the police examined his home, they found bottles of some prescription medicines, but they could not tell for sure whether they had any role to play in his death.
Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter confirmed that he found prescription bottles at Sage's home, but he would not comment whether they had anything to do with his death. However, Sage's mother, Sasha Czack, went to ID her son's body at his apartment and she said that the only bottles she found there were those of empty Doc Brown's Cream Soda.
An autopsy will be performed and in that autopsy, toxicology tests will also be carried out, but it might take several weeks before its results are revealed. Meanwhile, the entire world of entertainment is mourning over the loss of Sage Stallone and a lot of people are sending out their condolences to Sylvester Stallone and Sasha Czack.
Sage was Sylvester's first born son from his first wife, Sasha Czack. Both father and son shared a good bond. Sage starred with his father for the first time in his teens, in the movie "Rocky V" and later even worked with Sylvester in "Daylight". Later in life, Sage took on direction and made a career out of it, although not a really successful one.
Sage's family is still trying to cope with the grief and they will be arranging his funeral soon.
