Deadliest Catch star Blake Painter has died at only 38 years old. Painter’s body was found in his home on Friday, May 25, in Oregon, after a friend of the fisherman notified police when he did not hear from him for days and became concerned. Police officers obtained entry to Painter’s house and determined that he had been dead for several days. Painter was best known for his role during the second and third season of the Discovery Channel show. He was captain of the F/V Maverick and was featured on multiple episodes before he voluntarily quit following season 3 in 2007. A cause of death has not yet been revealed, but no foul play is suspected. Police are testing substances — including prescription pills — that were found in Painter’s home at the time of his death. An autopsy and toxicology test will be done in the coming days to determine Painter’s official cause of death.
