Following last week’s surprising death of Sylvester Stallone‘s son, Sage, the initial reports claimed that he overdosed. While that hasn’t been confirmed yet (the toxicology report hasn’t yet been released), another possibility seems to paint the producer/director as a possible drug dealer.
TMZ law official insiders do not believe Sage was a heavy drug user due to his weight as “he was pudgy, and drug addicts are almost always rail thin.” (At the time of his death, Sage was marked as being 5’7″ and weighed around 188 pounds.) However, they are making a likely scenario that he sold drugs, “specifically Hydrocodone”:
Our sources say authorities did not find a single Hydrocodone tablet in Sage’s house. Yet, as we previously reported, they found more than 60 gigantic empty prescription bottles — the kind stocked by pharmacists to fill consumer scripts. Each bottle holds a minimum of 500 pills, so Sage probably had more than 30,000 pills, but they were all gone.
We’re told LAPD detectives and L.A. County Coroner investigators are going to try and trace some of the bottles using batch numbers and serial numbers, but one well-placed source believes there’s a “strong likelihood” the pills were shipped from another country.
More after the jump.
Following other reports that there was a mysterious “white powder” found in Sage’s room, the law enforcement insiders now believe that it was not cocaine as previously thought, but ground up Hydrocodone, although it has not been properly tested as of yet.
At the current moment, Sylvester has a private investigator working to see what exactly led to his son’s demise. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to be leading to a good end.
