Buckwild’s Shain Gandee Dead At 21 (UPDATE)

April 1, 2013 / Posted by:

Shain Gandee, one of the cast members on MTV’s redneck version of Jersey Shore called Buckwild, was found dead in a vehicle this morning in Sissonville, West Virginia. Shain and his uncle David Gandee were declared missing yesterday when they didn’t come home from a four-wheeling trip.

WCHS-TV says that Shain and David were last seen at Larry’s Bar in Sissonville at 3 in the morning on Sunday. They told everyone at the bar they were going four-wheeling in Shain’s Ford Bronco, but they didn’t say which area they were going to. Shain and David’s family called 911 and reported them missing after not hearing from them all day Sunday.

The Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper said this morning a person riding a four-wheeler drove by a vehicle and noticed three dead bodies in it. Police confirmed that two of the bodies were Shain and his Uncle David. The name of the third person found dead was not released.

Not that he can, but County Commissioner Carper didn’t say what police think they all died from. But I guess it’s not hard to figure out knowing that they all went four-wheeling at 3am after partying at Larry’s Bar. For some reason, this story makes me think about The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia and I can’t believe all of them are still alive (I think).

RIP Shain and Uncle David.

UPDATE: TMZ says that Shain’s Bronco was stuck in a muddy pit and the tailpipe was submerged, so the police believe that all three in the car died from carbon monoxide poisoning.
