News emerged on Friday that Sage Stallone, the 36-year-old son of actor Sylvester Stallone, had been found dead at his Hollywood Hills home.
After an initial autopsy did not reveal much, the cause of his death will probably remain a mystery for a month or so. Meanwhile, there are various opposing reports that circle around the web.
Here’s what reports have claimed so far..
Reports, citing off the record sources, claimed that Sage, who made a famous appearance in Rocky V, had been living as a hermit.
Also, he was described as a not so communicative person and he is said to have spoken to no one since Friday, July 6. Even his housekeeper had a very limited access to Sage’s room that was not so appealing to enter in the first place.
Only few people being sincerely concerned about Sage’s well-being, his dead body was found thanks to his mother, Sylvester’s ex-wife Sasha Czack. Sasha told the housekeeper to check on her son after not being able to reach him herself.
That’s when Sage’s dead body was discovered. From the evidence they found on the “crime” place, investigators suggest his death was an accident and he was dead for at least 3-4 days before his body was found.
….and what Sage’s attorney said in a statement…
Contrary to the above, Sage’s attorney claimed that neither he exhibited any signs of drug use or any other addiction, nor did he drink. As for the time of his death, George Braunstein said Sage couldn’t have been dead for 3-4 days as he posted pics to Facebook 17 hours before his dead body was found. His friend and attorney also claimed that Sage didn’t attempt to kill himself, revealing he was planning to get married as soon as next weekend.
However, officials say that results of toxicology tests, which normally take at least six weeks, will finally determine what killed the 36 year old.
Our thoughts go with his family in the wake of this unfortunate story.
