The 19-year-old son of a recently fired Fox News host has been found dead.
The Daily News reports that Eric Bolling’s son Eric Chase Bolling, Jr., was found dead in Boulder, Colorado, near the University of Colorado campus where he was enrolled as a student.
The cause of death is not yet known. Authorities indicated that at this point, they see no evidence of self harm, according to Boiling Sr.
Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night. Details still unclear. Thoughts, prayers appreciated.

The teenager primarily went by his middle name, Chase. He was the only son of Eric Bolling and his wife, Adrienne Bolling.
Chase’s tragic death reportedly came just hours after the elder Bolling was fired from the network, and Fox News cancelled his show The Specialist, amid accusations that Bolling sexually harassed co-workers.
Fox News released a statement in response to the tragedy on Saturday:
