Sylvester Stallone's son found dead

Los Angeles - Aspiring actor and filmmaker Sage Stallone, the son of action movie star Sylvester Stallone, was found dead on Friday at his home in Hollywood, authorities and his attorney said.

Police and a lawyer for Sage Stallone, 36, gave conflicting accounts of how he was found, but police said there was no sign of forced entry or foul play.

The case was turned over to the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office, Lieutenant Andy Neiman said.

Neiman said police found the younger Stallone in the home while responding to a "welfare check". Attorney George Braunstein said he was found by a housekeeper.

"It's a tragedy. He was a young, talented extremely good filmmaker and a lovely person," Braunstein said.

"We don't know any of the details but it must have been some sort of tragic accident. He was full of life and working on projects," Braunstein said. "He wasn't at all depressed or anything like that."

Braunstein said he believed that Sylvester Stallone was returning to Los Angeles from the Comic Con pop culture convention in San Diego.
