Sage Stallone

Heart Attack -- Not Drugs

Cause of Death

8/30/2012 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0830_sage_stallone_gettySylvester Stallone's son, Sage Stallone, died from a heart attack ... and no drugs were found in his system ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. County Coroner has determined Sage died from natural causes.  As for why he had a heart attack, we're told there was evidence of heart disease. 

A source connected with the Coroner tells TMZ ... it was "unusual" for a person Sage's age -- 36 -- to have such advanced coronary problems, but that's what killed him.

Sage's body was found July 13, but he may have been dead days earlier.

It's sad that he had a disease that most likely could have been treated and prevented him from dying so young. I'm sure it is a relief to his grieving parents to find it was NOT drug related as everyone assumed. Still, Sage is gone too soon no matter what the cause.

Long term drug abuse can and often does cause heart disease. Whitney Houston's autopsy showed she had heart disease from years of cocaine abuse. I'm not saying Sage was a drug addict BUT, it is rare to see someone so young have a bad ticker.

These results might help the family accept the sudden death of such a young person. Not drugs, but natural causes.

Wow. RIP, Sage. I'm sure this will bring comfort to Stallone to know that Sage died from "natural causes." It's not unheard of for someone his age to have a heart attack, but it shows that Sage wasn't taking good care of himself or visiting the doctor regularly.

Andy Gibb also died of a heart attack - it's the drugs that caused the heart disease. By all accounts this guy had a drug problem.

Ever heard of Kawasaki Disease? Any time a young person drops dead of heart attack, heart disease this young makes me think of this largely undiagnosed disease that occurs in young children and can leave permanent damage on their hearts.

This is similar to Elvis Presley's death...heart disease....brought on by excessive drug use. Dying of heart disease vs a drug overdose will be of little comfort to his family...they know the why of his death.
