Just a few hours ago, Sage Moonblood Stallone who appeared with his father, Sylvester Stallone in 1990’s “Rocky V” was found dead in his Los Angeles home.
His body was discovered by his housekeeper, who then called for help. The police arrived at the house at 2:17pm. There were no signs of foul play or forced entry.
Sage was only 36 years old.
Which begs the question, why?
Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Commander Andrew Smith says that although rumours are rife that Sage died from a prescription drug overdose, it’s still too early to tell. Thus, he has urged the media and public to allow the coroner’s office to run a toxicology report before jumping into conclusions. And like all toxicology reports, the process can take up to several weeks.
“It sounds like a terrible tragedy. He was way too young to die. But it could have been a heart attack or a stroke”, Andrew added.
Stallone’s family lawyer released a brief statement moments ago citing:
Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son Sage Stallone. His compassion and thoughts are with Sage’s mother, Sasha. Sage was a very talented and wonderful young man. His loss will be felt forever.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Sylvester Stallone today.
