Sage Stallone

Autopsy Complete, Results Pending Toxicology Report

7/15/2012 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE 1:35 PM PT -- The autopsy has been completed, but the results will be deferred pending a toxicology report, which usually takes 4-6 weeks.

The L.A. County Coroner has just begun the autopsy of Sage Stallone ... TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, it will be completed later today.

As TMZ first reported, the son of Sylvester Stallone was found dead in his home on Friday of an apparent overdose. His body was discovered by the maid.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they believe his death was accidental and no note was found at the scene. 

Sage famously made his film debut alongside his father in the 1990 movie "Rocky 5" -- playing the role of Rocky's son Robert Balboa.

TMZ stay on the story and search for the name of the prescribing doctor of all the pill bottles in Sage's (or others) name. Overprescribing narcotic medications is a serious crime, just ask former Dr. Conrad Murray or ask Sage's step-grandfather who already has a criminal manslaughter conviction for the death of his former wife. Now he's married to Jackie Stallone. Is Doctor Stephen Marcus Levine of Santa Monica the prescribing doctor for Sage and if he actually has records in support of illnesses which may require such strong medications ???

Condolences to Sly, Sasha, family and friends. Let's let the dust settle TMZ. You don't have to print every single thing about this young man, just because of who his father is. Please show some respect.

get real    

What a Handsome Guy. What a Shame. If He had a Maid........ Why do reports claim in May in a Magizine interview his LR was Dirty and staked with Junk? Why did Bedroom have Beer cans and Butts all over. The Maid must have not been aloud to clean certain rooms? The Guy was reported to be a Hermit! The father Must have accepted that and not had much contact with him. Oh Sly!

You have to wonder if Sage's astrologer grandmother Jackie Stallone predicted this with or without a planetary analysis.

Another Sage-thread here mentions magazine publisher Robert Rhine - know nothing about him.

According to Mr. Rhine and others - Sage was obviously not functioning weeks or months back.

That this was obvious to everyone.

Okay, fine, I've had periods where I wasn't functioning - granted this happens.

The question being why didn't Rhine or anyone else get ahold of Sly via Sly's reps?

If it was so damn obvious - as people now insist - then why was Sage allowed to hide/avoid Sly?

It's easy - you drop Sly's people a note: "Sage is in big time trouble but doesn't want you to know..."

That's point one.


Point two.

When a plane went down in the Potomac twenty years back?

PBS or someone did a study on what went wrong.

Experts agreed ice bought the plane down - killing sixty - about - about sixty crash landed.

So they re-trace.

"Um, the plane had been de-iced once but then wasn't cleared for take-off due to snow storm."

"Er, the plane should be de-iced every ninety minutes and should never have left without an additional de-icing."

"Er, I didn't tell the pilot because I thought he knew. (the plane hadn't be re - de -iced.)"

"Er, I told one of the flight attendants to tell the pilot but she forgot."

"Er, someone didn't tell someone or thought someone else would tell someone so that no one told someone."

This is the perfect recipe for tragedy.

Everyone down the line thinking someone else should/would do it.

Who's supposed to tell Sly - the housekeeper?

Hell, does she even speak English?

House-keepers then worry about being fired -

So now Sage is gone and a plane is down and everyone's an expert.

On what others should have done.

"... TMZ. You don't have to print every single thing about this young man, just because of who his father is. Please show some respect."

I applaud your respect of the Stallone family however I disagree with you on this one, Smashed.

TMZ should print every ounce that they deem/certify to be journalistically-appropriate and true -

Sly more than anyone would want this entire thing to be aired and hashed-out...

-So as to save others - even with one other.

This didn't have to happen -

When things happen that don't have to happen -

Maybe they can be prevented next-time-around.

Maybe a Foundation will result that'll give way to this happening less-and-less.

John Walsh lost his kid Adam to a horrible thing.

Look at what he and his wife did ... as a result.

Sly's the same way.

He'll turn this into something positive - you'll see.

It's a brutal loss - so it's gonna take time.

I always loved Sly Stallone, and i am praying for him and his family over the death of Sage, but i really don't want to sound mean, but tmz is reporting that it was an accidental overdose....Seriously, i hate when the media reports that. It is the dumbest line EVER> He either killed himself, or DID NOT> I say he killed himself. The autopsy report will soon confirm what happened. Anyhow, peace be with him, and R.I.P. and my condolences to Sly. Very very sad story.

I feel badly for the Stallone family. No one should EVER bury their child.
Since the autopsy did not say something like 'he had a heart attack' then we can only presume that there will be something in toxicology. Too bad. Poor guy. :(
