Tom Johnston, former WSVN meteorologist, was found dead last night in Maine after being reported missing on Monday when he failed to return from a Portland, Maine event. Police reportedly found his body last night. He was 46.
Johnston worked for a couple years at WSVN from 2003 until 2005. Most recently he had been the chief meteorologist at WCSH the NBC station in Portland, Maine since 2014.
Last night Portland, Maine Deputy Police Chief Jason Moen told the press “Any suspicion of foul play has been ruled out and the investigation is focused on an apparent suicide.”
I’m still processing this because we bantered a bit on Twitter just a few days ago and Tom was the usual funny, sarcastic TJThunder we all knew and liked. It just goes to show that we never know what someone might be going through.
Condolences to his family, and those of you who knew him.
