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.
