Sage and Sylvester Stallone

Story by Jack Foley

SAGE Stallone, the son of actor-director Sylvester Stallone, died from natural causes due to a heart condition, the Los Angeles County Coroner has ruled.

The 36-year-old was found dead at his Hollywood home by an employee and a relative on July 13. But although bottles of prescription pills were found nearby, they were not connected to his death.

Rather, a condition that causes blockage of the arteries was the case of the tragedy.

Toxicology results showed Stallone had a small amount of the sedative hydrocodone in his body but no other drugs were detected and the death has been classified a natural death.

Sage Moonblood Stallone was the oldest of Sylvester Stallone’s children and co-starred with his father in two films, Rocky V and Daylight.

He also became involved in movie-making, directing a 2006 short, Vic, that was screened at the Palm Springs Film Festival.

A spokesman for Sylvester Stallons said the actor had no comment about the coroner’s findings.
