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.
