Default Deadliest catch Capt found dead

https://pagesix.com/2018/05/29/deadl...167.1415101592

ormer “Deadliest Catch” captain Blake Painter was found dead in his home at the age of 38.

Painter, who served as the captain of the F/V Maverick on the hit Discovery Channel show, was discovered on Friday in his Oregon home, according to TMZ. A concerned friend who hadn’t heard from Painter in a few days called the police, who entered his home and determined he had been deceased for several days.

Police also discovered substances that will be tested for narcotics, according to TMZ. No foul play is suspected in his death, and an autopsy and toxicology test will be done to determine the official cause.

Painter, an expert crab fisherman, appeared on Season 2 and part of Season 3 from 2006 to 2007 before deciding to leave “Deadliest Catch.”

Discovery Channel had no comment.

The way it looks like most of those guys live, I'm surprised they make it to 30.

I remember that dude from the early shows. Always butt hurt for not being captain. Sad situation with the drugs.

Rhyme & Reason Lyrics

Oh well oh well so here we stand
But we stand for nothing
My heart calls to me in my sleep
How can I turn to it
Cause I'm all locked up in this
Dark place -
And I do not know
I'm as good as dead
My head aches -
Warped and tied up
I need to kill this pain

My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
Until I'm dead and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
Until I'm six feet underground

How long I'm tied up
My mind in knots -
My stomach reels
In concern for what I might do or
What I've don
It's got me living in fear
Well I know these voices must
Be my soul
I've had enough I've had enough of being alone
I've got no place to go
My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
Until I'm dead and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
Until I'm six feet under ground

Six feet under
In my grave
Lying wired and shut and quiet in my grave
Leave me here
Leave me here to waste here
So young and here I am again
Talking to myself
A T.V. blares
Oh man
Oh how I wish I didn't smoke
Or drink to reason with my head

But sometimes this thick confusion
Grows until I cannot bear it at all
Needle to the vein
Needle to the vein
Take this needle from my vein my friend
I said
My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
Until I'm dead and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
Until I'm dead and gone

In my grave
Lying
Lying cold in my grave
The reason -
My reason
Take my head off this terror
The fearing won't come back
I can't see
My mind's all wiped clean
The needle
Make my great escape
I seem caught in time
My head leaves me behind
Body fall cold And I see heaven





John

Sig Hansen looks like he died five seasons ago but hasn't laid down yet. Jesus Christ, he looks like a month old corpse.

Agree. He's a little younger than me but looks 15 years older.

Maybe they will not live to reach 90 or more, but several of those captains are well north of 30, alive and still doing a quite good job catching crab.

Keith is the next to kick the bucket. That dude is one episode from a major heart attack. It may be made for tv but he is one stressed out guy.

Meth to stay up fishing long periods of time, Heroin to deal with the pain.

Nobody said they couldn't catch crab. I'm saying they probably don't get the same thumbs up from their doctor that they do from the guys at the dock.
