The official Amazon synopsis for Deadliest Catch reads, “It’s the deadliest job on earth: crab fishing off the Alaska coast on the icy Bering Sea, home of the most violent waters on earth. During the five-day ‘season'” a handful of adventurers will work around the clock against Arctic weather and brutal waves for a chance at big money. Sadly, they all may not return.”
In sad, recent news surrounding the show, Blake Painter, who was known as a captain on seasons 2 and 3 of Deadliest Catch has unexpectedly died at the age of 38, according to TMZ. His body was found on May 25, 2018 and police determined that he had been dead in his home for a few days. It is undetermined whether or not prescription pills found in the home were a factor in Painter’s passing. No foul play has been suspected.
According to the Daily Astorian, Painter was arrested this past January 2018 for heroin possession and driving under the influence of intoxicants. And, as reported by Heavy.com, this was not Painter’s only arrest. In the past, he was arrested on charges including gun possession, recklessly endangering another person, criminal mischief, unlawful fishing and traffic violations.
