Deadliest Catch Star Blake Painter Dead at 38

There's some sad news for Deadliest Catch fans.

Former "Deadliest Catch" captain Blake Painter was found dead in his OR home at the age of 38.

When the friend stopped by Painter's home just outside the town of Astoria, Ore., he saw a body lying prone on the kitchen floor and called the Sheriff's Office, Bergin said. An autopsy and toxicology report had been ordered.

He said there were no signs of foul play or suspicious circumstances.

The Discovery Channel is yet to comment on Painter's death.

Red Sox eat another big contract as Hanley Ramirez era ends
That placing Ramirez on the bench would also directly affect his vesting option was a mostly unspoken aspect to the decision. When Herb Brooks was crafting the 1980 Olympic hockey team, he left a number of the most skilled players off his roster.

As beloved as he was, however, Painter was not without his problems.

His hometown newspaper The Daily Astorian reported that a man of his name and age was arrested this January after a police officer allegedly caught sight of him smoking heroin at the wheel.

Painter is not the first Deadliest Catch captain to die. The reality star was only 38 years old.

In 2016, Sig Hansen suffered a major heart attack, and his condition was touch and go for some time, but he ultimately pulled through and survived.

Painter, an expert crab fisherman, first turned up on Deadliest Catch during season 2 and opted to leave the series several episodes into the third season.
