The Fox News Channel anchor Eric Bolling’s nineteen-year-old son dies Friday night in Boulder, Col., hours after Eric was fired from Fox news and the reason for his untimely death is suspected to be his father’s problem on the Fox News.

Fox News fired Eric Bolling following a sexting scandal just hours before his son’s death. He took Twitter on September 9 to reveal the news about the loss of his son Eric Chase Bolling, Jr.

Bolling tweeted saying that he and his wife of almost two decades Adrienne Bolling are devastated by the death of their son last night. He appreciated the thoughts and prayer saying that the details are still not clear.

According to reports published on Saturday, Eric Chase Bolling was found dead in Boulder, Col., at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he was studying economics.

His body was discovered hours after Fox News announced that it cut ties with the co-host of "The Specialists,” a 10-year network veteran Eric Bolling.

Bolling’s first tweet was followed by the second one that reads,

Moreover, TMZ has reported that Eric Chase died from a drug overdose. TMZ reported-

“We're told he was having a hard time dealing with the trouble his dad was having at the network. Our sources say he was extremely embarrassed by the stories and was emotionally upset.”

The death of younger Bolling was first reported by HuffPost reporter Yashar Ali, who previously reported that Bolling sent lewd messages several years ago to two female colleagues. A month ago, Bolling sued Ali for $50 million in damages for defamation.

Soon after the news about Eric Chase Bolling’s death was revealed, Fox News Channel issued the following statement that read-

 "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."

We extend our sincere condolence to Bolling and his family. May the departed soul rest in peace!
