UPDATE: Eric Bolling son’s death shocked the entire nation and the people got even more disturbed knowing the fact that Bolling’s little son committed a suicide. However, the new updates of his death give us a slightly different view of the situation. Actually, Eric Bolling’s son may not have attempted suicide after all. Read more below:
The death of Eric Bolling’s 19-year-old son, Eric Chase, shook the media world to its core. Many people around the man instantly went into grieving mode out of respect for the former Fox News host. Losing a child is never easy. Losing a child like this is devastating. Yashar Ali, the same freelance writer that authored the piece pointing at sexual harassment made by Bolling was ironically one of the first to report on his son’s death.
He wrote on Twitter, after finding out, “Very sad news, Eric Bolling’s son, who was only 19, died last night. By all accounts, Eric was incredibly devoted to his son. Heartbreaking.” This seemed a bit off in many respects as he was calling for Fox to fire Bolling just one day earlier. Bolling went so far to protect his name by suing Ali for $50 million in damages.
TMZ also broke the news. They pride themselves on being first, which means sometimes, their sources get mixed up. That is what happened here during this tragic situation. They had updated their story to note that this was an apparent suicide. But no official sources had come out with this information. Bolling was quick to note.
“Authorities have informed us there is no sign of self-harm at this point,” Bolling explained. “Autopsy will be next week. Please respect our grieving period.”
TMZ then had to retract their title and change it to something that did not suggest suicide and rather an overdose.
TMZ hinted at drugs on Saturday saying, “Well placed FNC sources tell TMZ… Eric Chase died from a drug overdose. 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.”
There are a lot of theories as to what happened currently swirling around. But nothing has been officially reported. Bolling has promised to continue to keep us updated as time goes on. Please pray for him and his family during this time of suffering and grief.
So sad… He didn’t need to go that way. Poor kid. That’s it… He was extremely depressed and emotionally unstable after his father was brutally lynched for things he never committed, but he and his family became a target of a vicious liberals’ revenge. May his soul rest in peace.
