Despite a plea by Sly Stallone for speculation to stop as to what caused the death of his son, Sage Stallone, 36, TMZ reports law enforcement sources saying he may have been dealing a generic form of Vicodin. Sixty empty prescription bottles, each with a capacity of 500 Hydrocodone pills, were reportedly found in the home, according to the website.

Sage's mother, Sasha Czack, had earlier suggested to the press her son, found dead in his Los Angeles home July 13, may have been taking pain pills after having five teeth pulled.

Sylvester Stallone was also reported by TMZ to have hired a private investigator to source the cause of his son's death. While the autopsy was completed Sunday, toxicology results may take as long as six weeks.
