Ex-Fox News host Eric Bolling’s son’s autopsy has been completed. The cause of death is expected to be revealed next month, although investigators indicated that there were no signs of self-harm.
Eric Bolling was driven out of Fox News after a lewd picture scandal. Eric Chase Bolling’s death came just hours after the network announced his dad’s dismissal. Multiple media outlets have claimed that the young college student may have taken his own life because he was distraught over his father’s scandal.
Family friends, however, have rebutted that claim. An unnamed female source told a local news outlet that Eric Chase loved his father and had nothing but respect for him.
“He lived life to the fullest,” she said. “He was your average college student. Just an awesome guy.”
Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night. Details still unclear. Thoughts, prayers appreciated.

Eric Chase was 19-years-old. Questions are swirling around his death because he was seemingly healthy. He was found lying in bed with the bed covers pulled up. There was no suicide note, nor were any pill bottles found near his body.
Nobody knows what happened, but that’s not stopping the media from flinging out wild theories. Some claim Eric Chase died of an overdose. Others say he took his own life after the stress of his father’s firing became too much. Still others insist that his death was an accident.
The investigation is still ongoing; more details will soon be released. In the meantime, let’s respect the Bolling family and allow them to grieve.
