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.

It says Sylvester Stallone is a WRECK, Well obviously his son's problems with pills has been going on for a long time now. He should have done something to get him serious help. He has all the dam money, get him fixed, but its too late now.

What is so different between the "snap happy tour bus" and your OWN TMZ crew there? RIP Sage

R.I.P. Sage... It Seems That The Entertainement Industry is Cursed to ALL Those Who are Involved With it.. Sadly the Saying is Very True.. WITH THE SWEETS...COME ALSO, THE SOUR... or ..WITH THE GOOD..YOU MUST ALSO ACCEPT THE ..BAD!!! It's Sad That The BIGGER You Become in Entertainment, The BIGGER The Tragedies are In & Around Your Life! ..Too Many Times it's The Celebrity's CHILDREN That Are Lost.. "THAT" (In My Opinion) Must be the MOST SEVERE PAIN Ever Created... So, if THIS is What Is to Be Expected With Entertainment & Becoming a Celebrity...I'll PASS On It Thank You! .. It's a Hard Life being in The PUBLIC'S EYE Anyway, but..They SHOULD Have Expected THIS from Day One, but Later, When They're HUGE Stars...It Seems THEY are the Ones who Suffer EXTREME LOSS... God be With the Stallone Family at THIS Time!! ...As Well as Usher Raymond's ...THEY are ALL Going thru SO MUCH! it's Terribly Sad... You're all in our Prayers... . Judy...
