Shain Gandee, a castmember on MTV’s reality series Buckwild, was found dead Monday morning in a vehicle in Sissonville, W. Va.
Per local ABC affiliate WCHS, the 21-year-old Gandee and his uncle David Gandee were among three bodies discovered by a person on a four-wheeler. Family members and emergency personnel on the scene confirmed their deaths while the identity of the third body has yet to be released.
The tragic news comes after the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department said the reality star and his 48-year-old uncle were reported missing after last being seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at a local bar.
According to authorities, the pair had told people they were going four-wheeling in Shain’s Ford Bronco, but it’s unclear where they were headed. After failing to turn up on Sunday, the family reported them missing.
Gandee’s death is the latest in a salvo of bad news to befall Buckwild, coming on the heels of costar Salwa Amin‘s arrest on drug possession charges and Michael “Bluefoot” Burford‘s bust on suspicion of DUI.
So far, MTV has yet to comment.
