Actor and film director Sage Stallone passed away at the age of 36 from natural causes due to a heart condition, and no drugs were found in his system — this according to the coroner’s officials.
The death of Sage Stallone on July 13 was attributed to a heart condition that causes blockage of the arteries, and no other factors were involved in the incident. It has now been classified as a natural death.
The sudden demise of Sage due to the heart condition clearly shocked his family and friends. Sylvester Stallone’s publicist described the actor as “devastated and grief-stricken” and Sly even skipped numerous promotional events for his newest film, “The Expendables 2.”
Sage Stallone was the oldest of Sylvester Stallone’s children and co-starred with his father in two films. Sage also became interested in moviemaking, directing the 2006 short “Vic,” which was screened at the Palm Springs Film Festival.
The young Stallone made his acting debut during the 1990’s “Rocky V” and also appeared with his father in 1996’s movie “Daylight.” Also in 1996, Sage Stallone and veteran film editor Bob Murawski con-founded Grindhouse Releasing — a company dedicated to promoting and preserving the B-movies and exploitation films of the 1970s and 1980s.
Sage was found dead in his home by a house help and a relative. No foul play had been suspected in the incident, and toxicology results showed only minimal amount of hydrocodone in his system.

Authorities who are in charged with the investigation of the sudden demise of Sage Stallone believe that a “likely scenario” is that he was involved in drug dealing — specifically Hydrocodone, generic Vicodin.
According to law enforcement sources, they do not believe that 36-year-old Sage Stallone was an addict because of his weight. Sources of media outlet TMZ claim that at the time of the actor’s death, he weighed 188 pounds. A law enforcement source added, “He was pudgy, and drug addicts are almost always rail thin.”
TMZ sources added that authorities said they did not find a single Hydrocodone tablet in Sage Stallone’s house. However, as it was previously reported, they found more than 60 huge empty prescription bottles — the kind stocked by pharmacists to fill customer scripts. Each bottle is said to hold a minimum of 500 pills, meaning that Sage Stallone probably had more than 30,000 pills — all of which were gone.
Los Angeles Police Department detective and Los Angeles County Coroner investigators are going to attempt to try and trace some of the bottles by using serial numbers and batch numbers, but a well-placed source claims that there is a “strong likelihood” that the pills have been shipped from another country.
Although the baggies of white powder which have been found in the actor’s room — a room that the housekeeper was prohibited from entering — have yet to be tested, TMZ sources believe that it will most likely prove to be ground up Hydrocodone.
Previous reports also stated that Sylvester Stallone had a meeting with renowned private investigator Scott Ross on Tuesday. Ross will be doing his own investigation to find out what was going on with Sage Stallone and why he died.

The police found bags and bags of white powder in the room where actor and film director Sage Stallone died.
According to law enforcement sources, detectives confirmed that they found “several little baggies in the bedroom.” A source even added that the white powder is being tested and suggets that it could be crushed Vicodin or possibly cocaine.
However, media outlet TMZ reports that there were no obvious signs of white poweder on the body of Sage Stallone when he was found dead by the housekeeper.
As it was previously reported, the authorities found “huge” empty prescription bottles in the bedroom of Sage Stallone. A law enforcement source has now explained that they found “more than 60 gigantic bottles, like the ones you see in the pharmacies.”
The police are aware that the bottles contained Hydrocodone, a generic Vicodin.
The investigators of Sage Stallone’s death are completely baffled at the large quantity of the bottles found in the bedrrom and are trying to figure out where the actor may have gotten them. They sau it is possible that he purchased them online, but they are also looking at several doctors who might have given him the prescription bottles.

The sudden and tragic death of actor and film director Sage Stallone has been the hottest buzz in various media outlets right now, and due to conflicting reports about the incident, family members were already pointing fingers.
According to reports, Edd Filiti, the 18-year-old cousin of Sage Stallone, posted an angry message on Facebook, suggesting that the “Rocky” star Sylvester Stallone was at least partially to blame for the sudden demise of his son.
In the posts obtained by media outlet Celebuzz, but has since been removed, Edd Filiti explained that his uncle, Sylvester Stallone, had essentially cut ties with his son Sage Stallone — a move that is believed to have devastated the film producer, and may have led to his sudden death.
“What did he do wrong, say happy birthday,” Filiti wrote in his Facebook account, according to Celebuzz. “Neither you [Stallone's wife Jennifer Flavin] or he could return a phone call, which is all he wanted, his father.”
“I know you don’t care what happened, but you’ll care when you’re squirming under the burning magnifying glass of public opinion. You people make me f— sick,” Edd Filiti went on.
As previous reports have stated, Sage Stallone was found dead by his housekeeper in his Hollywood Hills home on Friday. He was reportedly surrounded by empty cans and prescription bottles. The police officials did not specify the type of pills that were found in Sage’s room, and whether or not they played a significant part in the actor’s death, although they said that his death was more like an accident since there has been no suicide note left. Foul play has also been removed in the list of the possible cause of Sage’s death.
Edd Filiti is a cousin of Sage Stallone and the son of Stallone’s half-sister, Toni Ann.
His criticism did not stop at Sylvester Stallone. He also reportedly took a jab at the actor’s current wife, Jennifer Flavin.
“Jennifer Flavin, you won,” he wrote. “You tore this family apart and got your trophy, Congrats! Like you told my family, ‘I’m Sly’s family now, he doesn’t [need] you anymore.’ Lets see how much he needs you after this.”
Sasha Czack, the biological mother of Sage Stallone, separated with actor Stallone in 1985 after being married for 11 years.
Sylvester Stallone issued a statement on Sunday night, asking “people to respect my talented son’s memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha,” and for the media to stop “the speculation and questionable reporting.”
“When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain… This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives,” Stallone went on. “Sage was our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son’s memory and soul left in peace.”
An autopsy and a toxicology test of Sage Stallone have already been completed on Sunday, but the results of the latter will not be released for many days, if not weeks.

Film director and actor Sage Stallone is believed to have been dead in his room for at least three to four days, and possibly as long as one week.
According to law enforcement sources connected to the case, 36-year-old Sage “lived like Howard Hughes,” meaning he often spent his days in his room which was “littered with junk,” including a huge number of beer and soda cans, food and several cigarette butts. Sources also added that there were two drawers which was filled with different pill bottles, some of which were “huge.”
Sources of media outlet TMZ said that Sage Stallone was living like a hermit before his sudden death. No one had really spoken to him since a week ago Friday. Though the housekeeper had been to his house earlier this week, she had specific ongoing instructions never to go inside the room of the actor. In fact, they were even told that they should not knock on his door.
A law enforcement source described the room as “disgusting,” saying it reeked of various smells.
The mother of Sage Stallone called the housekeeper on Friday because she was unable to reach him, asking the housekeeper to stop by and check on him. That was when she discovered the body of the actor.
Law enforcement sources said that it was quite clear from the evidence they saw that the sudden death of Sage Stallone was an accident.

Actor and film director Sage Stallone was reportedly “out of it” during a recent photo shoot at his house, where he tried taking photos with a camera that still had the lens cap on — this according to a magazine publisher.
Girls and Corpses editor-in-chief Robert Rhine told media outlet TMZ that he did a photoshoot for the magazine back in May at the house of 36-year-old Stallone, because the subject of the shoot had known the actor for quite some time.
Robert Rhine said that it took Sage Stallone about 45 minutes to answer his door, adding he was able to determine right away that the actor was “on something” because he was stumbling around and slurring his words, though Rhine never really saw him take anything. The editor-in-chief said that Sage would talk to him for a couple of minutes before trailing off and walking away. Rhine described the behavior of the actor as “very similar to Ozzy Osbourne.”
Robert Rhine said that during their photoshoot, Sage suddenly came out with a camera of his own, which bothered the mag editor a bit due to copyright issues. However, upon further inspection, Rhine noticed that Sage Stallone had not even taken off the lens cap.
Robert Rhine said that Sage’s place was a total mess, with piles and piles of stuff everywhere. As it was previously reported by TMZ, law enforcement sources said that the bedroom of Sage Stallone was “disgusting” because it was littered with empty cans and cigarette butts, and that it reeked of various smells. Several bottles of pills were also found.
The Girls and Corpses editor-in-chief finished his story by saying, “What’s troubling is the fact that the people around him claim there were no signs. I saw the signs. When everyone from the shoot heard the news, none of us were surprised.” Additional comments from the law enforcement sources said that neighbors told them they were “shocked but not surprised” at what happened to Sage Stallone.
