A Los Angeles County coroner's investigator says there were no signs of foul play in the death of Sylvester Stallone's 36-year-old son, who was found in his home.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said prescription bottles were recovered in the investigation of Sage Stallone, but he could not say what kind or how many, and whether they had a role in his death.

Winter says Stallone was found unresponsive by an employee and a relative Friday afternoon, and police arrived and confirmed he was dead. No suicide note was found.

He says an autopsy will be performed in the next few days and investigators will look into Stallone's medical history, but a cause of death is likely to take several weeks while toxicology tests are performed.
