Justin Tennison Deadliest Catch Died

The Discovery Channel’s hit reality show has suffered yet another big lost.

Earlier today it was reported by TMZ that the lifeless body of Justin Tennison who was the captain of the Cornelia fishing boat was discovered in a hotel in Homer, Alaska.

The network which is commemorating the death Phil Harris who passed away after a stroke about a year ago is now mourning the death of the thirty-three-year-old staff member who was apparently discovered surrounded by a small amount of illegal drugs and alcohol.

“Deadliest Catch’s” Capt. Andy Hillstrand posted the sad news on Facebook in the following statement:

“It is with great sadness that the Time Bandit family announces the death of crew member Justin Tennison. Justin died peacefully in his sleep the night of Feb. 21, 2011.Justin was tough as a bull and was an all-around good hand. The captains and crew appreciated his hard work and many contributions this past year. We will miss him terribly and wish his family all the best during this most difficult time.”

The celebrity website also revealed that the cause of death of the deckhand is unknown for the moment and that an autopsy will be performed very soon.

Tennison who was a crew member of the Time Bandit ship is survived by two children.
