I think its the 3rd time.

"On February 21, 1991, Tillikum, then living at a location in British Columbia, Canada, was involved in an incident that resulted in the death of 20-year-old female trainer Keltie Byrene.

Tilikum was moved to Orlando in 1992.

In 1999, a man who snuck into the park after closing time was found dead inside the whale’s tank. "

I thought there was a law against keeping Killer Whales in captivity, or is that only in Canada?

I think most of them used to be caught in the Strait of Georgia (off Vancouver)
