‘Deadliest Catch’ star Justin Tennison has been found dead, just a year after showmate Capt. Phil Harris died at age 53 following a stroke, in February 2010.
Police found Tennison’s body in a Homer, Alaska hotel room. Reports are that drugs and alcohol were found in the room. It is unknown whether they played a role in Tennison’s death.
The 33-year-old was an engineer and deck hand aboard the Time Bandit boat.
The Discovery Channel reality show is about the fishing industry in dangerous waters off Alaska.
