The 36-year-old's attorney and longtime friend George Braunstein revealed the actor was very full of life and he wanted to tie the knot. "He was very creative, energetic and very full of life. We were just joking about how he was going to get married and have a fun marriage. There was nothing dark or depressing, no problems, certainly no financial problems."
He claims Sage did not drink alcohol or take drugs. "I never knew him to drink alcohol. I never saw him take drugs. I never knew of anything like that at all," he said.
Law enforcement sources said Sage may have been dead for a minimum of three or four days, possibly as long as a week, before his body was discovered by his housekeeper.
But Braunstein dismissed such claims, saying: "Sage was a really young, very sensitive, and very talented kid. There has been no indication that there was anything wrong in his life."
