(AP) LOS ANGELES - Coroner's officials have determined that Sylvester Stallone's 36-year-old son died from natural causes due to a heart condition.

Sage Stallone died in July from a condition that causes blockage of the arteries. No other factors were involved.

The coroner's office says Sage's death has been attributed to natural causes.

He was found dead in his home by an employee and a relative on July 13. No foul play had been suspected, and toxicology results showed only a minimal amount of hydrocodone in his system.
