Thirty-eight-year-old Blake Painter, one of the featured fishermen on the show, has been found dead in his OR home.

Painter's body was found by police on Friday, May 25, after a friend grew concerned over his well-being due to not hearing from the reality TV star for some time. Drugs, including prescription drugs, were found in the home but they may not have anything to do with Painter's death, Bergin said.

Blake Painter, an OR fisherman featured on the television series "The Deadliest Catch", has died.

It is also reported that no foul play is suspected, but an autopsy and toxicology test will still be done to determine an official cause of death. When officers arrived at his OR home, they allegedly discovered Painter had been dead for several days.
