“Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night,” Bolling tweeted. “Details still unclear. Thoughts, prayers appreciated.”

Bolling, 54, added in another tweet, “There is no sign of self harm at this point.”

Boulder police said the cause of death is still under investigation. Eric’s autopsy is scheduled for next week.

In a statement released on Saturday, Fox News expressed its sadness over Bolling’s loss.

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

Friends and colleagues also shared their condolences.

The student was found dead just hours after his dad was ousted from the Fox News network amid allegations of sexual harassment.

He is accused of sending inappropriate text messages to female colleagues, according to multiple reports. He was initially suspended in August pending an internal investigation.

Bolling has filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against reporter Yashar Ali, who broke the story.

“Fox News Channel is canceling The Specialists, and Eric Bolling and Fox have agreed to part ways amicably,” the network said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. “We thank Eric for his ten years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck.”
