Sage Stallone Was Dead At Least 3 Days Before His Body Was Found
Sage Stallone had been dead for at least three days before his body was discovered yesterday by his housekeeper in his Studio City apartment.Law enforcement sources working on the case told TMZ that the 36-year-old son of Sylvester Stallone had been dead in his room for a minimum of three or four days—but possibly as long as a week.
No one had spoken with Stallone since last Friday. His housekeeper had been to his home since then, but she was given instructions not to enter his room or bother him. Sources told TMZ that Stallone's mother actress Sasha Czack asked the housekeeper to check on him after she had trouble reaching him, and that was when his body was discovered.
Stallone's death appears to be an accident and not a suicide, TMZ reported. There wasn't a suicide note, but there were tons of pill bottles (for what, we're not sure). One law enforcement source told TMZ that Stallone's room was "disgusting" and full of cigarette butts, beer, soda cans and food.
Stallone's death appears to be an overdose, but an autopsy is scheduled for the next 48 hours.
