Ric Flair’s youngest son, Reid Fliehr, was found dead, on Friday morning, in Charlotte, N.C.
The 25-year-old, best known by his ring name “Reid Flair,” was unresponsive when he was found at the hotel.
North Carolina’s WCNC reports that Charlotte-Mecklenburg police received a phone call at around 10:30 a.m. from someone claiming a man was unresponsive in a hotel room at the Marriott Residence Inn off Piedmont Row Drive South.
Ric’s agent, Melinda Morris Zanoni, released a statement regarding Reid’s death. The message was posted on the Legacy Talent and Entertainment, LLC Facebook page:
We are heartbroken to confirm that Ric’s son, Reid Fliehr, has passed away today March 29, 2013 in Charlotte, NC. The investigation into the cause of death is ongoing. Reid was 25 and an incredible son, brother, friend, and professional wrestler. No words can describe the grief that Ric and his family are experiencing, and they do request privacy during this devastating time.

Fliehr had just returned from working for All Japan Pro Wrestling the day before. Police are looking into the possibility of a drug overdose.
