NY Post beat you on this one, so no exclusive there. They are also reporting that he was found by Police after they were asked to conduct a welfare check

Well, if TMZ thought Sly was a "WRECK" before getting the "FULL" story now he'll be a basket case. It's not bad enough that his son died, now he'll be hit with the "WHAT IF's?" from how he died. My condolences to the family and friends.

OMG how terrible. He has really had a lot of heartache when it comes to his children. His other son is autistic and I believe he has a daughter that was born with a hole in her heart.
