Legendary wrestler Ric Flair is mourning the loss of his son after he was found dead at the age of 25.
Richard Reid Fliehr, who was a wrestler like his father, was discovered unresponsive in his hotel room in North Carolina on Friday (29Mar13), according to local news outlet Wcnc.com.
A statement issued by his agent to Tmz.com reads: "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. No words can describe the grief that Ric and his family are experiencing and they do request privacy during this devastating time."
