Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone has been left “devastated and grief-stricken” following the sudden death of his actor son, Sage.
Sage Stallone, 36, was found unresponsive in his flat in Studio City, near Hollywood, on Friday.
He was pronounced dead at the scene, amid some media reports of a medication overdose.
There was no sign of foul play or trauma, and no suicide note was found, a coroner said.
Sage Stallone appeared alongside his father at the age of 14 in Rocky V.
Bottles of prescription pills were recovered from the flat, but it was unclear what medication they contained or whether they were connected with the death, Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said.
A post mortem examination will be performed in the next few days, but it will take several weeks before toxicology tests can be completed, Mr Winter told the Associated Press.
The website TMZ quoted unidentified sources as saying that Sage Stallone had died of an overdose of pills, and that the authorities were trying to find out whether it was accidental or intentional.
