‘Buckwild’ Reality Star Shain Gandee Found Dead With Two Other Bodies

Shain Gandee, one of the stars of MTV reality show "Buckwild," was found dead this morning after being reported missing 31 hours earlier. The 21-year-old was discovered in a vehicle in West Virginia along with two other bodies.

According to officials, the young man and his uncle David Gandee told people that they were planning on going four-wheeling very early on Sunday morning. It’s unclear if David, 48, was one of the bodies in the vehicle. The two were last seen at a bar.

TMZ reports that MTV released a statement: "We are shocked and saddened by the terrible news about Shain Gandee, and those involved in this tragic incident. We are waiting for more information but at this time, our main concern is for the Gandee family and their friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. Shain had a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met and we will miss him dearly."

Salwa Amin, another 'Buckwild' star, was arrested for stockpiling oxycodone and heroin with the intent to distribute just a few days ago. He was then arrested a second time for testing positive for drugs after failing a court-ordered urine test.

'Buckwild' follows nine friends in Sissonville and Charleston, West Virginia. It premiered on MTV in January.
