According to the police in Malibu, California, the 32-year old body of Scott Sterling, son of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, was found late last night. A drug overdose is suspected as the cause of death. Per KTLA: “Police are investigating the death of Scott Sterling, son of Clippers owner Donald Sterling, whose body was found at his home in Malibu. Detectives were called to the 22600 block of Pacific Coast Highway at 11:29 p.m. on Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. The L.A. County Coroner’s office has confirmed that the deceased is the younger Sterling, age 32. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death. The coroner’s office said it appeared to be a drug overdose. Scott Sterling made headlines back in 2009, after he shot his childhood friend, Philip Scheid, who he claimed attacked him with a knife. The incident happened at Donald Sterling’s home on Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills. Police investigated the shooting quickly, and asked for charges against Scott Sterling within two weeks. They also called prosecutors’ attention to Donald Sterling, citing the transcript of a phone call with a detective in which he appeared to resort to an attempt at intimidation or influence peddling. More than a year after the shooting, prosecutors decided not to file charges, saying the victim as not credible.”
