(CBS Seattle) – KOMO News reports the network’s new weekend anchor, Joel Connable, 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.

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