On Saturday Sage Moonblood Stallone, son of Sylvester Stallone, the man who immortalized Rocky on screen, was laid to rest in Los Angeles after a funeral in Brentwood.

The private funeral for a small number of close friends and family members was held at St. Martin Tours Catholic Church in Brentwood.

The producer and former child actor who appeared in Rocky V alongside his father was discovered dead in his Los Angeles home on July 13. TMZ.com later revealed that Sage died of a drug overdose. Although, a suicide letter has neither been discovered nor released since his death.

TMZ.com reported that large bottles of prescription pills littered Sage’s home. As a result, many suspect that he was selling pain pills.

Meanwhile, other reports speculate that 36 year old Sage may have been alone and dead in his apartment for as much as several days before he was actually discovered. In fact, a police officer allegedly stated that the room where Sage was discovered smelled of a pungent odor.

Los Angeles Police Department Commander Andrew Smith allegedly stated that Sage could have even died of a stroke or heart attack. The coroner’s office is investigating Sage’s death and will likely release toxicology reports determining the cause of his death within several weeks.

Moreover, George Braunstein, Sage’s attorney, informed the media that Sage’s housekeeper found his deceased body. There are no reports of forced entry, nor is foul play suspected.
