Report: Authorities Suspect Sage Stallone Was Dealing Drugs

Albert L. Ortega/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Law enforcement officials involved in the investigation of Sage Stallone’s death, believe a “likely scenario” is he was dealing drugs, specifically Vicodin, sources tell

The 36-year-old son of actor Sylvester Stallone was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment last Friday.

Toxicology tests from an autopsy are still pending, but a source tells TMZ investigators do not believe Sage Stallone was an addict because he “was pudgy and drug addicts are almost always rail thin.”

TMZ previously reported that investigators found more than 60 large empty prescription bottles, the type pharmacists’ use, in Sage’s home.  The report says detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department will try to trace some of the bottles, but one source states there’s a “strong likelihood” they were shipped from another country.

A source also tells TMZ that the packets of white powder found in Sage Stallone’s home will prove to be ground up hydrocodone -- generic Vicodin.

Sage Stallone's funeral is scheduled for this Saturday in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles.
