SISSONVILLE, W.Va. – A cast member of the MTV reality show BUCKWILD was found dead Monday in a sport utility vehicle in a ditch along with his uncle and a third, unidentified person, authorities said.
Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department Cpl. B.D. Humphreys said the bodies of cast member, Shain Gandee, 21, his uncle David Gandee, 48, and the third person were found Monday near Sissonville.
Authorities had been searching for the men since early Sunday. They were last seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at a bar in Sissonville and they told people they were going driving off-road.
Humphreys said authorities received a call Monday morning that a vehicle was found wrecked in a muddy area a few miles from Gandee’s home in Sissonville, about 15 miles outside of Charleston.
Authorities found the 1984 Ford Bronco that belonged to the Gandee family in a ditch with all three men inside. Humphreys said no foul play was expected.
