Scott Sterling

MALIBU, Calif. – There were no signs of foul play in the death of Scott Sterling, the son of Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was found dead on the couch in his Malibu apartment, officials said Wednesday.

L.A. County sheriff’s detectives said evidence in the apartment seemed to suggest the 31-year-old died of a drug overdose, but they would not know for sure until toxicology tests conducted by the coroner were completed in several weeks.

Homicide detectives were called to the apartment complex in the 22600 block of Pacific Coast Highway about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday after the body was found. It was not immediately known who reported the death nor how long he had been dead.
