  1. "The History Channel series Deep Sea Detectives will have to go on without the
    popular 36-year-old co-host. Norwood, fellow host John Chatterton and director
    of photography Danny Crowell were on a dive off the coast of the Republic of
    Palau near the Philippines Saturday, December 5, when Norwood began to
    experience breathing problems. His companions were not able to save his life. A
    statement released yesterday by Carl Lindahl, executive producer for The
    History Channel, read in part, "Michael brought to the series a rare
    combination of talent. Not only was he an experienced diver and former Scotland
    Yard detective, he was a superb host. He thoroughly enjoyed what he did, and
    that was evident in every broadcast." Norwood is survived by his wife, Diana,
    parents Fred and Pat Norwood, and brother David Norwood. No funeral or memorial
    information was provided."
