Coroner Says Fox’s Roger Ailes Died of Head Injury

MIAMI – The death Thursday of former Fox News boss Roger Ailes was ultimately the result of a head injury, authorities in Florida’s Palm Beach County said.

The 77-year-old Ailes died of “complications of a subdural hematoma after he fell at home injuring his head,” the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner’s Office said in a brief statement.

“Hemophilia contributed to his death and his manner of death was accidental. There was no evidence of foul play,” the statement said, adding that the office’s full report would be available in three or four weeks.

An official in the Palm Beach Fire Rescue Department confirmed to EFE that paramedics were called to the Ailes residence on May 10 and found the erstwhile media executive bleeding profusely from his head after a fall.

Ailes, who built Fox News into a media juggernaut in the United States, resigned last year from his role as chairman and CEO of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network amid sexual harassment allegations.

He stepped down on July 21, 2016, after a former Fox News host, Gretchen Carlson, sued him and alleged that she had been terminated from her afternoon newscast after refusing her boss’ sexual advances.

Other former Fox News employees, including one-time star host Megyn Kelly, who worked for the network from 2004 to 2017, also said they had been the target of unwanted advances by Ailes.

Rupert Murdoch, who created Fox News and hired Ailes in 1996, assumed the role of chairman and acting CEO of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network after his colleague’s resignation.

“It is always difficult to create a channel or a publication from the ground up and against seemingly entrenched monopolies,” Murdoch said in July 2016. “To lead a flourishing news channel, and to build Fox Business, Roger has defied the odds.”

Ailes, a one-time consultant for President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election campaign and most recently a debate-prep assistant for Donald Trump, said that his greatest attribute had been his ability to identify and showcase compelling media personalities.
