Shain Gandee Found Dead After 30 Hour Search

Posted on April 1st, 2013 at 11:06 am

shainRumorFix can confirm that Buckwild star Shain Gandee was found dead early Monday morning in Sissonville, West Virginia.  

The 21-year-old MTV reality star's family conducted an intense 30-hour search before authorities found Gandee and two other bodies in a vehicle.

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Department says Gandee and his uncle, 48-year-old David Gandee,were last seen  at Larry's Bar at 3 a.m. Sunday in Sissonville where they told friends that they had planned to go four-wheeling.

MTV also released a statement to RumorFix, saying, "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."

UPDATE: 3 p.m. PT. The sheriff's department reports there is no reason to suspect foul play. They say they found Shain's Bronco "unevenly, but upright, and was partially submerged in deep mud.” This could validate rumors of carbon monoxide poisoning, because the sheriff's department says the muffler was "completely below the surface of the mud" which could mean the fumes couldn't escape.

An autopsy is pending.

      Look, I hate to say it but I don’t think it is CM poisoning. Look at the pics the back window is gone. Not little shards sticking out like it would be if it were from the recovery of the vehicle. Also, he is not stupid enough to stay in the car if he knew the exhaust was buried. Also, he would have had the exhaust rerouted for just this reason. Salwa was arrested in a house that had heroin. I bet they were out in the wood cause they can’t shoot at Shain’s parents house and they either got a hot shot, or a really pure batch of heroin and bam son..all three gone. It makes sense, I mean they say MTV was not following him that night, maybe that is why!
