'Deadliest Catch' Skipper Found Dead in Oregon Home

Blake Painter of Deadliest Catch fame has been found dead aged 38 in Oregon.

Police also discovered substances that will be tested for narcotics, according to TMZ.

A friend of his had called the police, having become anxious because he had not had contact with Painter for days on end.

The Daily Mail was the first to break the story about the Deadliest Catch star, who had been deceased for a few days before police found his body after being sent to his home to do a wellness check. "Of course his family are in my thoughts".

There is no reported cause of death, as of this writing.

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

Our thoughts are with Blake Painter's family, and the rest of the cast of Deadliest Catch, during what is undoubtedly a hard time.

The series was in the news just last week when another of the show's captains, Sig Hansen, 52, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge that he spat on an Uber driver after drinking in Seattle in 2017. The expert crab fisherman appeared in "Deadliest Catch" from 2006 until 2007 for Seasons 2 and 3, when he reportedly quit.
