Eric Bolling reveals how his son passed away

Eric Bolling Says His 19-Year-Old Son's Death Was 'Ruled an Accidental Overdose That Included Opioids'

Earlier this week, Bolling had sparred with Bill O'Reilly - another Fox News host at the focus of sexual harassment allegations - over O'Reilly's reference to Eric Chase Bolling in an interview with the New York Times.

According to the Denver Post, the Boulder County Coroner's Office revealed that Eric Chase Bolling, 19, died after ingesting a strong opioid along with marijuana and xanax. Eric Chase's death has been ruled an accidental overdose that included opioids. He included a photo of his son and called for a "fight against this national epidemic" that has affected "too many innocent victims".

"Adrienne and I thank you for your continued prayers and support".

Investigators in Colorado say the son of former Fox News host Eric Bolling died of a mix of cocaine and the painkiller fentanyl.

The report stated he had a "history of drug abuse and white powdery substance discovered at the scene". Bolling was also among a wave of Fox employees accused of inappropriate sexual behaviour after Fox broke its relationship with Roger Ailes, the network's longtime chair.

Bolling was sacked from Fox News over sexual harassment allegations, hours before his son was found dead.

Also on Thursday, President Donald Trump declared the opioid epidemic a national public health emergency.

There have been reports Eric Jr. had turned to drugs amid stress of his father's ignominy.

Bolling's friends and former Fox News co-workers expressed their condolences on social media Thursday.
