Eric Chase Bolling was attending the University of Colorado in Boulder when his body was discovered.
Bolling and his wife confirmed Eric’s death on social media and indicated that although it was still being investigated by police the rumors of a possible suicide were untrue.
He was their only child.
“Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night,” Bolling tweeted. “Details still unclear. Thoughts, prayers appreciated.”
“There is no sign of self harm at his point,” added Bolling. “Autopsy will be next week. Please respect our grieving period.”
Fox NEWS had suspended the 54-year-old host last month amid sexual harassment allegations, with the network recently announcing they were parting ways with the co-host of “The Five” and “The Specialists,” which is now being removed from their programming lineup.
Bolling has denied the allegations by filing a $50 million lawsuit against the Huffington Post reporter who broke the story.
“Fox News Channel is canceling ‘The Specialists’, and Eric Bolling and Fox have agreed to part ways amicably,” the network said in a statement.
“We thank Eric for his ten years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck.”
The FOX News Channel also made an official statement, saying: “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.”
