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.

    If any of you had bothered to read a little further before sticking your stupid necks out, you would have seen that the most probable cause of death was suicide.

      how can you stupidly say it was suicide? no-one knows that! And who is sticking their stupid necks out besides you?? Also why get personal in a sad situation?

    "aspiring actor and filmmaker" at 36!... No, he was a 'failed actor and filmmaker'.

    My deepest sympathy to Sly and his family. Recently watched Rocky V again and Sage played his Son in that. Had some talent. What a waste. RIP

    Why are there so many thumbs down, for people's sympathy?, it is towards who is grieving and not the poor deceased! to lizells's comment etc,etc.

    Let the investigation take its course. We can't make assumptions now because that might jeopardize the investigation!
