Two sides of Sage Stallone
An article on Gawker highlights some of the contradictions that always seem to emerge in connection with celebrity deaths.
Louis Peitzman writes that on the one hand, the 36-year-old son of Sylvestor Stallone was "a hermit living a Howard Hughes–like existence, which is why his body wasn't found for at least three days".
But, Peitzman adds, his lawyer and friend claims that Sage Stallone was posting on his Facebook page just 17 hours before his death.
Throw in a TMZ report about pills in his room, the lawyer's claim that Stallone's son never drank or used drugs, and the picture gets blurrier and blurrier.
Just like in the deaths of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, we'll probably have to wait for the toxicologist's report to offer the final word.
So far, there doesn't appear to be any Dr. Conrad Murray in this story upon which Stallone's death can be blamed.
