"Deadliest Catch" Justin Tennison Found Dead. He was 33.

Justin Tennison, crew member of F/V Time Bandit for the reality series "Deadliest Catch", was found dead in a hotel room in Homer, Alaska on Tuesday (February 22). Autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death. He was 33 years-old.

Initial reports from the police that there's a small amount of marijuana and several bottles of alcohol were discovered in the room.

Time Bandit captain Andy Hillstrand released a statement via Facebook:
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 February 21, 2011.

Justin fished commercially for many years, living in Alaska for 28 years. He worked on the Time Bandit, alongside his second cousin, Eddie Uwekoolani, Jr., serving as Engineer during the tendering seasons, and joined the Time Bandit crew as a deckhand fishing the Red King 2010 and Opilio 2011 seasons. 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.

Justin is survived by a son, daughter, sister, father and grandparents. He was 33 years old.
Prayers for the Justin Tennison and his Family.
