KOMO’s New Weekend Anchor Dies

November 2012 – (Blatherwatch) KOMO and CBS Seattle reports the death of KOMO TV weekend anchor, Joel Connable, 39 who was found dead in his apartment. According to family members, Connable’s insulin pump malfunctioned without his knowledge and he suffered a fatal, diabetes-related seizure.

The Miami New Times says Connable had just married his longtime girlfriend two weeks ago.

“He called in sick Monday, saying he was very, very sorry but he had caught a bad bug,” KOMO news director Holly Gauntt told Gossip Extra. “When he didn’t show up for work late Tuesday, we called police and asked them to do a welfare check. Joel was found on the floor in his new apartment.”

Connable had been out of the news business since 2009; he was last with Miami’s NBC affiliate before coming to Seattle.
