Former Fox News host Eric Bolling came out with a shocking announcement.
His son died from an accidental drug overdose this past Tuesday.
Bolling wrote about the whole incident on Twitter.
The death of his 19-year-old son, Eric Chase Bolling Jr., was ruled as “an accidental overdose that included opioids.” Bolling is absolutely devastated.
He and his wife, Adrienne, appreciated “continued prayers and support” that are coming from all over the world. Bolling emphasizes that “We must fight against this national epidemic” that took the lives of “too many innocent victims.”

Bolling Jr.’s friend, Wayne Carter, 21, confirmed that Bolling Jr. had been “doing things” the night prior to his death. Carter also noted that Bolling Jr. has been a friendly person who likes to party a lot, especially over the summer. Carter also revealed that Bolling has been using “college drugs — cocaine, weed, alcohol, Xanax sometimes” right before he overdosed.

According to Carter, Bolling Jr. “was very into his dad and looked up to his dad a lot.” Carterrevealed in the interview, “I’m not saying his life choices revolved around his dad but his dad was a huge role model in his life.”
Apparently, Bolling Jr. tried to get away from his problems by using drugs that caused his death. He was deeply bothered that his role-model, his dad, is not what he presents himself to be.
