The eldest son of the Hollywood superstar was found dead and rumours are spreading that it involves drugs. However, results from the toxicology report are still set to be out at least after ten weeks according to the spokeswoman of the LA County Coroner's office, Cheryl MacWillie.
Authorities said that there were several prescription bottles found in the scenario but no signs of any kind of foul play or suicide were detected.
