Shain Gandee, one of the stars of MTV’s “Buckwild,” has died. He was 21 years old.
The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to MTV News that Gandee’s body was discovered in a vehicle along with two others in Sissonville, West Virginia on Monday (April 1) morning. Gandee had been reported missing this weekend, having last been seen with his uncle David Gandee around 3 a.m. Sunday morning, when they told patrons at a bar that they were going off-roading in Shain’s Ford Bronco.
Police have identified a second body inside the vehicle as David Gandee’s, while a third victim remains unidentified. According to local reports, officers with the sheriff’s department were using all-terrain vehicles to access the area where the vehicle was discovered, roughly a mile up a dirt road near Wolf Pen Drive in Sissonville. Details of the cause of death were not known at press time, though authorities say foul play was not suspected.
