Sage Stallone Death Investigation: No Evidence He Was Dealing Drugs, Claims Source

Posted: Updated:

The investigation into the death of Sage Stallone continues, and though there were reports the 36-year-old might have been dealing drugs, sources told RadarOnline that so far investigators have no evidence to support those reports.

"Neither the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office, which is handling the bulk of Sage's death investigation, or the LAPD has uncovered any information that would even remotely suggest that Sage was a drug dealer," a source told the website.

TMZ first reported that police were looking into the possibility that Sage was dealing drugs because several small baggies containing white powder were allegedly found at the scene along with "60 gigantic empty prescription pill bottles," and a prescription for hydrocodone, the generic Vicodin.

But RadarOnline's source claims that if Sage was dealing drugs, it's questionable as to why he would leave so much evidence lying around. "Drug dealers just don't operate like that," explained the source, who added that friends continue to claim that the late son of actor Sylvester Stallone didn't drink or use drugs.

There have been conflicting reports surrounding the details of Sage's death, and autopsy results have yet to be released, but when he was found dead in his home on July 13, it appears as though the cause of death was most likely from a drug overdose.

"It looks like Sage's death was caused by an accidental overdose of prescription medication. Sage had five teeth pulled about a week before he died and that could have been a contributing factor in his death," a source revealed to the website. However, until the toxicology report is released later this month, all claims are speculative.

Sage was laid to rest on July 21, and his death has brought the Stallone family together. According to the Daily Mail, the family has united for a family vacation onboard a yacht in the Mediterranean.
