The son of former Fox News Channel anchor Eric Bolling has committed suicide, TMZ reports.

Sources told the website that 19-year-old Eric Chase Bolling, Jr., took his life Friday night in Boulder, Colorado, where he is in school.

Sources at Fox tell TMZ that Eric was having trouble dealing with his dad’s issues with Fox.

Bolling had been suspended since August.

Fox released the following statement:

“We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Eric Bolling’s son. Eric Chase was a wonderful young man and our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Bolling family.”
