Eric Bolling Jr was at a party the night prior to when he was found dead and was apparently noticed doing drugs, including cocaine, weed and Xanax, DailyMail.com reported exclusively.
Last Friday morning, the 19-year-old student of economics was found dead lying in his bed by a friend at his apartment in Boulder, Colorado.
Police data received by DailyMail.com display a medical call to his home at the lush Providence Boulder apartment complex was received at 7.49 a.m.
Bolling Jr, who is the only son of the 54-year-old discredited Fox News host Eric Bolling and his wife Adrienne, also 54, was pronounced dead shortly the same day.
Now a friend of Bolling Jr has alleged that the student used illegal substances just several hours before he died, but stated he didn’t purposely kill himself.
As reported by his close friend Wayne Carter, Bolling Jr had been out having fun the night before and had been “doing things [drugs]” – even sending videos of that night’s celebrations to friends through the messaging app Snapchat.
Carter, who comes from Malibu, California, exclusively told DailyMail.com that his friend always liked socializing but had stepped up his partying over the summer.
He also said he found out that Bolling Jr had once experimented with substances such as heroin but insisted that at the time of his death, he was sticking to “just college drugs – cocaine, weed, alcohol, Xanax sometimes.”
Bolling Jr had been extremely proud of Bolling’s career with the TV and was intensely influenced by the sexual harassment claims against him that led to him being dismissed by Fox on September 8. Bolling was blamed of send lustful images of his private parts to female colleagues.
‘He was very into his dad and looked up to his dad a lot,’ Carter pointed. ‘I’m not saying his life choices revolved around his dad but his dad was a huge role model in his life.
‘You’d go to a party and he was a cool guy but he’d be like, “Oh guys, do you know who my dad is?” And we’d be like, “Yes Eric, we know who your dad is!”‘
