Boulder police Sgt. Nick Smetzer said on Saturday that officers responded to an unattended death. The cause of Eric Chase was not immediately disclosed by the police. Eric Chase had been a student at the University of Colorado since 2016 and was a freshman.

In a tweet on Saturday, Eric Bolling stated he and his wife, Adrienne, were “devastated by the loss of their beloved son.” He added that there is no sign of self-harm and that they were awaiting the results of an autopsy report.

Boulder police Sgt. Nick Smetzer said on Saturday that officers responded to the 900 block of 28th Street on Friday on an unattended death and that any identification in the case would be issued by the coroner’s office.

Bolling was accused of sending sexually graphic images to some of his co-workers and others; the story was broken by a Huffington Post writer. Bolling responded by suing the paper alleging $50 million in damages.  The writer and the publisher have stood by their story. Bolling and Fox News reached an amicable settlement and exit plan.
