Authorities say a man who has appeared as a ship captain on the Discovery Channel television program Deadliest Catch has died in Sturgis, S.D., during its famous motorcycle rally.
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 sheriff says Lara died early Saturday morning at a private residence in Sturgis.
A message left at a phone number associated with Lara wasn’t immediately returned.
A post on the Discovery website describes Lara as a veteran crab catcher. He appeared on the show at the helm of a boat called the Cornelia Marie.
