The 32-year-old son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was found dead Sunday night.

Sheriff's Homicide Detectives were sent to a home on the 22600 block of Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu around 11:30pm last night, where they found the body of Scott Sterling.

The coroner's office says he died of a possible drug overdose, but the cause of death will be confirmed by an autopsy.

No other details were immediately available.

Scott's father, Donald, bought the Clippers in 1981 for $13 million.

TMZ, you're articles are always riddled with incorrectness (grammar, sentence structure,logic). E.g. "Body was found Sunday night". But then it says "Detective were sent to the home last night" (which was Tuesday, not Sunday)

So sad. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. @ BILL LESLIE...your comment was harsh. Here is a little bit of unsolicited information. Money has NOTHING to do with an overdose, accidental or intentional. Overdoses are rampant in our society. I'm an Emergency Medicine physician in Los Angeles and we see this unfortunate situation almost daily. Now, it is sad when we see only celebrities or their family members in the news when this tragedy occurs because this is happening everywhere! The Greater Los Angeles Area has a disproportionate overdose rate. Our hospital has a task force consisting of various internal and external departments to reach these potential victims before they become a statistic. We treat all patients the same whether they are "trust fund babies" (as you say), or from South Central L.A. with no healthcare benefits. My goal is to save lives. I could go on but I won't. Just having compassion in your heart and mind for people goes a long way, Bill. Have a great new year, Sir.
