Sage Stallone Death: No Suicide Note Found

Sage Stallone Directing Vic - P 2012

The death of Sylvester Stallone’s son, who appeared with the actor in “Rocky V”, is still under investigation.

No suicide note was found in the death of Sage Stallone, the 36-year-old son of Sylvester Stallone, officials say.

L.A. County coroner's officials continue to investigate the cause of death in the case, and said there were no signs of foul play, the  LA Times reports.

Stallone’s body was found Friday in his Studio City home by his housekeeper.

"We don't have any of the details," Stallone's lawyer, George Braunstein, said "He wasn't depressed. He was thinking about getting married. He had his whole life ahead of him."

Stallone’s father, who had been promoting Expendables 2 at Comic-Con before the discovery of his son’s body, was reportedly "devastated and grief-stricken.”

"Sage was a very talented and wonderful young man," said the action star’s publicist, Michelle Bega. "His loss will be felt forever."

Stallone made his big screen debut in 1990’s Rocky V, where he played son to his father’s Rocky Balboa. He also appeared in the elder Stallone's 1996 disaster film Daylight.

Though those near Stallone say there were no signs of trouble in the months leading up to the death, TMZ reports a magazine editor who supervised a May photo shoot in Stallone’s home says otherwise.

Robert Rhine, editor-in-chief of Girls and Corpses magazine, said Stallone took 45 minutes to answer his door the day of the shoot and appeared to be “on "on something".

"What’s troubling is the fact that the people around him claim there were no signs. I saw the signs,” Rhine said. “When everyone from the shoot heard the news, none of us were surprised." 

Stallone's mother is Sasha Czack, who was once married to his action star father. He had no children.
