The Los Angeles Police Department Robbery & Homicide division has officially taken over the death investigation of Sylvester Stallone‘s son, Sage, and the cops want to talk to several doctors that prescribed medications to him, prior to his death, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, prescription pill bottles were found in Sage’s bedroom but it didn’t appear that it was a suicide. “There were a number of prescription bottles found at the scene but it did not appear to be suicide and no note was found,” a source previously told Radar.
Stallone’s oldest son was discovered unresponsive at his Studio City home Friday, dead from an apparent drug overdose.
“Detectives from the LAPD are in the process of going through evidence recovered from Sage’s house and will be contacting the doctors that prescribed the medications found there,” a law enforcement source tells RadarOnline.com. “There was more than one doctor that Sage was seeing in the days leading up to his death. Cops want to establish a timeline of events leading up to Sage’s death and they want to know what his medical history was.”
“I saw him two weeks ago and he seemed great,” the friend said. “He was healthy and upbeat and didn’t seem depressed at all.
“I never knew him to do drugs, not even weed, so for him to die from an overdose is kind of shocking to me.”
Sage, full name, Sage Moonblood Stallone, was Sylvester’s son from his first marriage to Sasha Czack.
An actor, director and producer, Sage appeared in the fifth installment of Sly’s biggest film franchise, Rocky, where he played the title character’s on-screen son, Robert Balboa.
Most recently, Sage appeared in a 2010 movie called Promises Written In Water and a short titled The Agent.
His short-lived marriage to Starlin Wright in May 2007 was annulled after just 10 months.
Stallone’s rep, Michelle Bega, released a statement Friday afternoon: “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.”
