Stallone’s death has been under investigation since his body was discovered July 13. Stallone’s mother, Sasha Czack, has speculated prescription drugs her son received after undergoing oral surgery may have been involved, though officials have not named a cause of death, and stressed toxicology tests may take as many as six weeks to come back.

No suicide note was found in Stallone’s apartment, where his body was discovered by his maid.

Stallone made his big screen debut in Rocky V, playing the son of the Italian Stallion. He also appeared in his father’s 1996 disaster film Daylight.
