'Deadliest Catch' skipper Blake Painter found dead in Astoria home

Deadliest Catch’ Captain Blake Painter Found Dead In His Oregon Home

Deadliest Catch star, Blake Painter, was found dead in his Astoria, Oregon home last Friday, and RadarOnline.com has exclusive details about the tragedy.

Officers told TMZ that they found substances and prescription pills inside Blake's home, though it's unclear whether they contributed to his death.

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

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.

People.com also reported that the Clatsop County Sheriff's office confirmed Painter's death.

Painter, an expert crab fisherman, first turned up on Deadliest Catch during season 2 and opted to leave the series several episodes into the third season.

According to The Daily Astorian - a local OR news site - Painter was involved in a horrific vehicle crash in June 2016 as he was towing a boat behind his pickup truck.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Painter's body was discovered Friday in his OR home.
