In a tragic start to 2013 for the Sterling family, the son of Donald Sterling, who owns the Los Angeles Clippers has been reportedly found dead in Malibu this morning. According to KTLA in Los Angeles police are investigating the death of Scott Sterling whose after 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. According to some news reports, it appeared to be an overdose. KTLA also brings up the fact that this isn’t the first time Sterling has been in the news headlines. 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. The conclusion left police frustrated. Medical and ballistics reports showed that the victim was shot from behind from at least 15 feet away, yet Sterling claimed self-defense. “No rational person would entertain the possibility of his story being true,” Beverly Hills Det. Sgt. Jack Douglas wrote in a memo to prosecutors. Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
