Sage Stallone, son of actor Sylvester Stallone, died from natural causes due to a heart condition, the Los Angeles County Coroner has ruled.
Sage Stallone was found dead at his Hollywood home by an employee and a relative on 13 July.
Bottles of prescription pills were found but it was not clear if they were connected with his death.
Officials said on Thursday that the 36-year-old died due to a condition that causes blockage of the arteries.

Toxicology results showed Sage Stallone had only a small amount of the sedative hydrocodone in his body.
No other drugs were detected and the death has been classified a natural death.
The actor and film director’s sudden death stunned his family and friends.
Sylvester Stallone’s publicist described him as “devastated and grief-stricken” and the actor skipped several promotional events for his film The Expendables 2.
Sage Moonblood Stallone was the oldest of Sylvester Stallone’s children and co-starred with his father in two films,
Rocky V and Daylight.
He also became involved in movie-making, directing a 2006 short,
Vic, that was screened at the Palm Springs Film Festival.
In 1996, Sage Stallone co-founded Grindhouse Releasing, a company dedicated to preserving and promoting the B-movies and exploitation films of the 1970s and ’80s.
Sylvester Stallone’s spokeswoman said the actor had no comment about the coroner’s findings.
Japanese women have fallen behind Hong Kong in terms of global life expectancy rankings for the first time in 25 years.
This was partly due to the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit the country in March 2011, said an annual report by Japan’s health ministry.
The expected lifespan for Japanese women dropped from 86.30 years in 2010 to 85.90 years in 2011.
The official life expectancy for women in Hong Kong last year was 86.70 years.

Japan has topped the women’s rankings for a quarter of a century, with longevity attributed in part to a healthy traditional diet.
The magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that left more than 20,000 dead or missing pushed the life expectancy down.
However the report noted that even without the disaster Japanese women would still have dropped behind Hong Kong in the statistics.
Other factors contributing to the dip included a rise in the number of suicides among Japanese women, disease and other natural death causes, the report said.
The life expectancy for men in Japan also declined from 79.55 in 2010 to 79.44 last year.
The men dropped from fourth place in 2010 to eighth last year in the global life expectancy ranking, said Japan’s Kyodo news agency.
