Scott Sterling, the son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, has been found dead in Malibu, authorities said Wednesday.

L.A. County Sheriff’s Department homicide detectives were called to a home in the 22600 block of Pacific Coast Highway around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday after the body of a 31-year-old man was found, authorities said.

It was not immediately known who reported the death. Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore confirmed that it was the body of Scott Sterling, the son of the Clippers owner and real estate mogul Donald Sterling. The body was found alone, and friends and family had not seen Scott Sterling for a couple of days, Whitmore said.

Investigators were looking into the death as a possible drug overdose, Whitmore said. It will be several weeks before a cause of death is determined, pending toxicology tests, Whitmore added.
