Bolling explained how his son, Chase, was a very outgoing & good kid growing up and successfully finished his first year of college.

Bolling and his wife were heading back from dinner, when they received a phone call from a friend of Chase’s who sounded panicked. His friend referred him to a woman by the name of “Kayla” and told Bolling to call her immediately.

After making the phone call, Bolling found out a detective was at Chase’s apartment and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Bolling said that he and his wife were dumbstruck by the news and had to pull over to the side of the road. They couldn’t handle the news and were in complete shock. (VIDEO BELOW)

Eric later found out his son was part of the many deaths that have come as a direct result of the opioid crisis.

Bolling said after he was able to move forward, he has spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to prevent the crisis from spreading. And he said the underlying problem to the crisis is parents have “Not My Kid Syndrome,” which he says is “a killer.”
