Shain Gandee of MTV’s ‘Buckwild’ Found Dead in Vehicle [VIDEO]
Shain Gandee, the 21-year-old star of MTV’s ‘Buckwild,’ was found dead early Monday morning (April 1st) in West Virginia.
MTV Reports that Shain was reported missing, after being last seen leaving a bar with his uncle, David Gandee, at a bar around 3am Sunday morning. They told patrons of said bar that they were going off-roading in Shain’s Ford Bronco. They were not seen again until police discovered Shain’s body, along with his Uncle David’s and a third, as-of-yet-unnamed third deceased party, inside of his vehicle in Sissonville, West Virginia.
While the current details of the three deaths have yet to be specified, authorities have said that they do not believe foul play was involved. We will bring you more details as they become available.
This is not the first time one of the stars of the show, often dubbed the “Redneck Jersey Shore,” has made headlines for their off-screen activities. Salma Alwin was recently arrested for violating the terms of her release on pending drug charges stemming from a heroin bust and Michael Douglas Burford was busted for driving under the influence in February. MTV will likely see some backlash for promoting such “Buckwild” behavior in the wake of all of these events, making the previously announced second season of the show far from “done deal.”
