Bolling tragedy: The son of Fox News per­son­al­ity Eric Bolling was found dead in his Boul­der apart­ment last week, hours af­ter the TV host lost his job at the net­work amid a sex­ual ha­rass­ment scan­dal. Bolling was sus­pended in Au­gust af­ter The Huff­in­g­ton Post re­ported that he had sent lewd text mes­sages, in­clud­ing “an un­so­licited photo of male gen­i­talia,” to at least three col­leagues. Last week, the net­work can­celed Bolling’s show, The Spe­cial­ists, and an­nounced that it was “am­i­ca­bly” part­ing ways with the host. Eric Chase Bolling Jr., 19, who was study­ing at the Univer­sity of Colorado Boul­der, was found dead shortly af­ter the an­nounce­ment. Sources told TMZ.com that Bolling Jr. was suf­fer­ing “emo­tional tor­ture” over his fa­ther’s hu­mil­i­a­tion. But other friends dis­puted that claim, and Bolling Sr. said that his “beloved son” showed “no sign of self harm.” Po­lice said tox­i­col­ogy tests would take weeks.
