Sage Stallone, the son of Sylvester Stallone, died of coronary artery disease, with coroner's officials suggesting that smoking might have played a role.

Coroner Chief Craig Harvey said that Sage had a history of being a heavy smoker, although family members have said the amount had diminished lately.

Sage Stallone died in July at the age of 36.

The coroner declared death by natural causes and the toxicology test came back "negative except for a sub-therapeutic level of hydrocodone."

The drug played no role in his death. A housekeeper found Stallone's body. According to reports, pills were found at the residence and investigators were trying to determine their source and whether they played any role in the death.

Instead, heart disease was the cause of death, and exactly what role, if any, smoking played in that is a question that may never be answered.

Sylvester also lost his half-sister, Toni-Ann Filiti, this week.

Based on its latest findings, authorities are now considering the possibility that Sage Stallone was a drug dealer.

As previously reported, the 36-year old son of Sylvester Stallone was discovered dead in his bedroom last week, surrounded by empty prescription pill bottles for Hydrocodone (generic Vicodin).

However, officials do not believe Sage himself was abusing any substances, largely due to his weight (5'10", 188 pounds at the time of his passing) and the lack of physical evidence on his corpse.

TMZ insiders say no Hydrocodone tablets were actually found in Stallone's home, despite the fact that each bottle could hold up to 500 pills at a time. As a result, detectives and investigators will attempt to trace the contents using each bottle's serial numbers.

Sage's father, meanwhile, has reportedly hired his own private investigator to look into the life and death of his child, while all involved will need to wait a few weeks before the official cause of death is announced.

We have an update on the death of Sage Stallone.

Less than a week after the 36-year old's body was found by a housekeeper, and with his family still awaiting official word on the young man's cause of death, sources tell TMZ that authorities have discovered what appears to be either cocaine or crushed Vicodin in Stallone's bedroom.

According to law enforcement insiders, detectives found "several little baggies in the bedroom," although there remains no evidence of any substance on Sage's actual body.

Moreover, this same insider, confirms the presence of "more than 60 gigantic bottles, like the ones in pharmacies," along with the baggies. The bottles have been identified as containing Hydrocodone.

Sylvester Stallone reportedly met with a private investigator yesterday in his own attempt of figuring out what happened to his son.

With no clear answer over how his son passed away, Sylvester Stallone is reportedly taking proactive steps to clear up questions surrounding the tragic death of 36-year old Sage.

According to TMZ, the veteran actor talked with Scott Ross this week, the private investigator who played a key role in both the Michael Jackson molestation case and the Chris Brown/Rihanna battery case. Ross met with Stallone, his brother Frank and an official from the coroner's office yesterday.

There's been no evidence of foul play, but questions continue to arise over Sage Stallone, whose body was found on Friday inside his bedroom.

Initial reports claimed an overdose and that Sage has been dead for days when discovered, but new evidence (e.g. Facebook posts) make it appear as if Sage were still alive within 17 hours of a housekeeper finding his corpse. Sources, meanwhile, swear he never had a problem with drugs.

An autopsy has been performed, but the results of toxicology tests will not be known for weeks.

With rumors continuing to circulate regarding the death of Sage Stallone - did he overdose? Was his corpse lying around for three days prior to being found? - the 36-year old's famous father has released a new statement.

"When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain," Sylvester Stallone tells TMZ. "Therefore I am imploring people to respect my talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha."

As pictured above, the Stallones starred in 1990's Rocky V as father and son and, by all accounts, were close in real life.

Sage's cause of death remains unknown, while sources say his case has been moved to the Robbery Homicide because it is so high profile.

"This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives," the actor concludes. "Sage was our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son's memory and soul left in peace."

The mystery behind Sage Stallone's death will, unfortunately, remain unsolved for at least another month or so.

An autopsy has been performed on the 36-year old son of actor Sylvester Stallone, who was found dead in his home on Friday, but a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Coroner tells CNN it still requires the results of toxicology tests. This typically takes six weeks.

Meanwhile, while initial reports claimed that Stallone passed away from some kind of drug overdose, his attorney says Sage never showed any signs of substance abuse. According to George Braunstein, Stallone didn't even drink alcohol.

Along similar, conflicting lines, sources alleged that Stallone's corpse has been lying in his bedroom for days… but Braunstein points to posts made on Sage's Facebook page less than 24 hours prior to his death that counter those claims.

Sage appeared opposite his father in 1990's Rocky V and again in 1996's Daylight. He was actually set to marry his fiancee in Las Vegas this weekend.

Our thoughts go out to his family and we'll update this story when more is known.

Law enforcement personnel who found Sage Stallone dead he likely passed away at least 3-4 days and possibly a week before his body was discovered.

Off the record, sources say Sage Stallone, the son of acting legend Sylvester Stallone who famously appeared in Rocky V, had been living like a hermit.

Sage would spend days in his room, which was "littered with junk." A source called it a "disgusting" mix of cigarette butts, beer, soda cans and food.

There were also reportedly two drawers filled with various pill bottles, some of which were "huge." No one had spoken with Sage since Friday, July 6.

A housekeeper had been to his home at some point earlier this week, but had specific ongoing instructions never to enter Sage's room and did not.

The housekeeper was told to never even knock at the door for whatever reason, so it's certainly conceivable that he was in there for several days.

His mom, Sylvester Stallone's ex-wife Sasha Czack, called the housekeeper Friday after being unable to reach him and asked her to check on him.

That's when she discovered the body. From the evidence they saw - unofficially at least - investigators believe Sage's death was an accident.

Our thoughts are with his family in the wake of this sad story.

UPDATE: Sage's attorney says he posted pics to Facebook 17 hours before he was found dead, never exhibited any signs of drug use or addiction, and didn't drink.

This is very much contrary to what TMZ, who first reported this story, quotes its sources - within the law enforcement community - as saying.

The prescription drug element to this story has not been confirmed at this time; however, Stallone's death earlier today has been confirmed.

Authorities are trying to determine if the death was intentional or accidental, but The Expendables 2 star Sylvester is said to be a "wreck."

Sage Stallone famously made his film debut alongside his father in the 1990 movie Rocky 5, playing the role of Rocky's son Robert Balboa.

Sage was the oldest of Sylvester's five kids, and his first of two with his first wife Sasha Czack. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.

UPDATE: Sylvester Stallone's rep, Michelle Bega, says he is "devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son Sage Stallone."

"His compassion and thoughts are with Sage's mother, Sasha. Sage was a very talented and wonderful young man. His loss will be felt forever."
