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.

R.I.P was a good guy! That's sad that he had to go out that way so young. Shame

I don't know or care who paid off the coroner's office for this one, but it paves the way for other celebrity death coverups like "Lindsay Lohan dead of dehydration and exhaustion at 28, no drugs or alcohol in her system" or "Rihanna's death from blunt trauma ruled accidental, no foul play suspected."

OH PULEEEZZZ, DRUGS CAUSED THE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.... THE POLICE REPORTS SAID DRUGS AND LARGE SIZE PILL BOTTLES WERE FOUND ALL OVER THE JOINT. EVIDENCE POINTED TO SAGE BEING A DRUG DEALER AND/OR CONSISTENT DRUG USER. REMEMBER, DRUGS FADE FROM THE SYSTEM OVER TIME ONCE YOU STOP USING THEM. IF THE DUDE DIED SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE THE DRUGS ALREADY LEFT HIS SYSTEM AND THE CORONER FINDS NOTHING. SOUNDS LIKE THE REPORT WAS WRITTEN TO MAKE STALLONE AND FAMILY MORE SATISFIED WITH THE RESULT. PATHETIC HOW PEEPS TRY TO HIDE HIDE THE TRUTH... #TRUTH!!

Fox News reports that "No foul play had been suspected, and toxicology results showed only a minimal amount of hydrocodone in his system."

I guess the question is whether he was abusing prescription drugs & for how long.

Some of you nut balls continue to discuss drugs as the main issue. Or have cover up theories and what not. Not our business either way. . Poor man, a person who was kind to others , cared for others. and Then we have jerk offs on here that wouldn't hold a candle to Sage and your still breathing and spreading rumors of a person you never even met. Yep it's true the good die young. What a great loss this is. I know I feel crappy.

Sure he did. And how many celebrities have been convicted of using drugs that have been caught?

that doesn't mean that it was not cocaine related. why did he have a heart attack at his age? that is unusual. cocaine can cause advanced coronary artery disease that will be present even if you quit using- putting you at an increased risk for a heart attack. cocaine can also cause a heart attack and death by vasospasm (tightening of the artery instead of blockage) up to 16 days after using the drug. A also hate when the media reports "no drugs in his system". that often leaves out prescription drugs of abuse (although not in this case since they reported a small level of hydrocodone )

"The empty prescription pill bottles recovered from Sage's house were going to be used as props in an upcoming movie he was going to be working on." - ROL

My husband had a heart attack when he was 35....so it DOES happen. Fortunately he is a medical professional so he knew the signs and got help right away. Most 36 year olds wouldn't suspect heart attack so they would most likely not get help immediately after their symptoms started and therefore the risk of death increases.
