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.

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."

6:04 PM PT:
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.

I would care, but I feel no pity for people that is suicidal. I feel sorry for Sly though, guess rambo wasn't there to save his son. Drugs and pills the answer? Hope you like a casket, who time, I "LOL" at it.

No sympathy, not for this guy. My brother had cancer and fought hard every damn day for his life and he died at the age of 16. Sage was given every opportunity in life and he threw it all way. It hard to feel bad for him when he did this to himself.

When celebrities have kids, they aughta make them move out of California entirely. It's almost abusive to raise a kid in that environment when your parents are rich and famous. Too much temptation. If Sly moved to Toledo after Sage was born, I bet he would have been a healthy, normal kid.
