Sage Stallone was found dead on July 13, 2012, but it was said that he had passed away several days sooner. While it was rumored that Sage passed away as a result of drug abuse, the Coroner’s report states that he actually passed away from a heart attack. In fact, no drugs were found in his system at all at the time of his untimely death.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has released the details of Sage’s autopsy and as it turns out, his habit of smoking excessively quite possibly contributed to his death. The Coroner’s office said that the toxicology tests came back negative “except for a sub-therapeutic level of hydrocodone.”
Sage’s family did note that he had been cutting back on smoking by using e-cigarettes. There was apparent evidence that Sage suffered a heart attack, even though he was only 36-years-old. Either way, knowing that will never take away the amount of hurt that the Stallones feel as a result of Sage’s loss. May he rest in peace and his family move forward from this tragedy.
