In a hotel room in Homer, Alaska the body of Justin Tennison, of Deadliest Catch fame, was discovered. According to TMZ when the room was searched a little bit of pot was found as well as a number of alcohol bottles. At this time the cause of Tennison’s death is unknown but many are wondering given the condition of his room if drugs and alcohol didn’t play a part.

As for a biography on Justin well there isn’t a whole heck of a lot. He had one son and one daughter. The experienced fisherman lived in Alaska for most of his life and fished commercially for years. However during the off season he worked as an engineer, which is pretty cool that he did two such completely different things with his life. Justin was a deckhand for Time Bandit. The captain of the boat, Andy Hillstrand, wrote a very heartfelt message on his Facebook page about Tennison and he sounds like he was quite the guy. If you get a chance you should check it out, pretty moving.
