Eric Bolling’s Son Has Died

By Chris Ariens 

Hours after he left his job at Fox News Channel, Eric Bolling‘s son was found dead.

Eric Chase Bolling, 19, was a college student in Colorado.

“Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night. Details still unclear. Thoughts, prayers appreciated,” Bolling tweeted Saturday afternoon. Despite reports that Eric Chase had committed suicide, Bolling tweeted later: “Authorities have informed us there is no sign of self harm at this point. Autopsy will be next week.”


Fox News released this statement: “We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Eric Bolling’s son. Eric Chase was a wonderful young man and our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Bolling family.”

Bolling had been suspended for a month during an investigation into sexual harassment claims against him. Bolling and Fox News parted ways yesterday. He’d been with Fox since 2008.
