Results of Scott Sterling Autopsy Await Toxicology Tests

The official cause of death for Scott Sterling, the son of L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, will likely not be released for weeks.

An autopsy was conducted on Scott Sterling, the son of Clippers owner Donald Sterling, Thursday, but the results will not be completed until a toxicology test is finished, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.

Sterling was found dead Tuesday night on a couch at a unit in the Malibu Beach Villas apartment complex at 22660 Pacific Coast Highway, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Investigators indicated that Sterling's death resulted from a possible drug overdose.

Sterling's body was discovered by deputies who responded to calls from friends that Sterling had not been seen in days, the sheriff's department said.

In a statement, Donald and Shelly Sterling said their son battled Type 1 Diabetes before his death.

"His death is a terrible tragedy, the effects of which will be felt forever by our family and all those who knew and loved him,'' they said.
