'Deadliest Catch' Star Gone Too SoonChris Rogers
Deadliest Catch star Justin Tennison’s body was found unresponsive in a hotel room Tuesday, according to TMZ.
Police arrived to the Best Western Bidarka Inn in Homer, Alaska after receiving a call at 12:52 p.m. Tennison, 33, was lying in bed unresponsive.
A small amount of marijuana and some bottles of alcohol were found in the room at the time of death. But these have not been considered causes of death. A complete autopsy will be conducted with the state medical examiner.
Time Bandit captain Andy Hillstrand wrote on Facebook that Tennison had worked as an engineer on the boat during offseason, and had just joined the crew as a deckhand in recent months for crab season.
