A TV personality known for appearances on a popular reality show died during the annual motorcycle rally in Sturgis, S.D.
The AP reports that Tony Lara died Saturday. Lara was known for his appearances as a ship captain on the show “Deadliest Catch,” which airs on the Discovery Channel.
“Meade County Sheriff Ron Merwin says he’s waiting on autopsy results to help determine the cause of 50-year-old Tony Lara’s death,” the AP reported Monday. “The sheriff says Lara died early Saturday morning at a private residence in Sturgis.”
Entertainment Weekly notes that Lara appeared in six episodes of the program, where he captained the crab-fishing vessel the Cornelia Marie.
Lara is the second figure from the show to die, following the death of former Cornelia Marie captain Phil Harris from a stroke in 2010.
