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.

Sources tell us officials DID find "numerous empty pill bottles" in the area where Sage's body was discovered. No word on what types of medication the pill bottles were for.

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

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.

RIP: but, here is what i have been thinking: sly's kid, vs. arnold's kid...only because they are always connected and compared...soo, I thought, who would be the worse loss, then I realized these were kids, then I remebered Harvey you have to make a choice -
"gun to your head" so I decided it should be
sly and arnold to go, leave the kids alone.

One pill makes you shorter and one makes you tall but the one that mother gives you doesn't do anything at all.

It's sad that doctor's are prescribing drugs so frivolously. And people are dying for it. I lost my best friend in the same manor. R.i.P Sage.

This dude was worthless and had no career, lived off his father

Sage - you will not be missed, however, I am going to watch your father's "classic" action film The Specialist just to see what a real Stallone can do
