UPDATE 10:22 PM PT --
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Sage's death does NOT appear to be a suicide.  We're told there was NO suicide note found at the scene.

We're told an autopsy is scheduled for some time in the next 48 hours.

UPDATE 5:15 PM PT: 
Sylvester Stallone's rep, Michelle Bega, tells TMZ, "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."

Now here's a crazy picture -- the L.A. County Coroner van, flanked by a celebrity tour filled with snap-happy tourists. Welcome to Hollywood, folks.

Another dead celebrity & or celebrity relative. Suicide or not - 'surrounded by numerous prescription medication bottles' is the typical Hollywood red flag. I'm not shedding 1 empathetic tear - for a good kid, screwed up by money, family & fame. Worst thing for this kid, if he had grown up as the son of an Iowa corn farmer, is not getting his fave girl to accompany to the high school sock hop. Peace Out, Maxx.

I don't believe in assuming anything. I went down with a heart attack and never did a drug in my lifetime. He may have taken a Prescription Drug that did not coincide with him. He is gone don't make judgment just allow the family their time and leave them alone. I could not imagine my daughter leaving me so soon, but when I was in the hospital I worried about leaving her.

If you want to say welcome to Hollywood and only refer to the Hollywood tour, you're hypocrites. The picture taken is probably by paparazzi. But who isn't a hypocrite, I mean I am because I'm looking at this site.

We, including my self, swarm to this site like a bunch of buzzing insects. But after reading about Stallone's son, I am done with it. TMz made a comment about the tourists in the bed of 1/2 baked pickup…..but you what? What the hell are all of us giving credence to those who prey on a death of a son?
