'Deadliest Catch' crew member Justin Tennison dies




Another crew member on Discovery's Deadliest Catch has died: Justin Tennison of the F/V Time Bandit was found dead Tuesday in a hotel room in Homer, Alaska. The cause of death was under investigation.

TMZ says the 33-year-old was found around 1 p.m. Tuesday at a Best Western, lying unresponsive on a bed. Police believe a party had been going on in the room, where some marijuana and booze was found. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday, but results have so far been unavailable.

Tennison had been working as an engineer on the Time Bandit in the offseason and had recently joined on as a deckhand. Capt. Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie died after a stroke last year, an event handled on the show.
