TMZ is reporting that Shain Gandee, one of the stars of MTV’s Buckwild, was found dead this morning. According to the report, he and two other individuals were found in a vehicle in Sissonville, West Virgina, 31 hours after he and his uncle told people they were going four-wheeling. He was 21.
There’s not much information beyond that at this point. There’s no official cause of death, no window into the last hours of his life, and the other two individuals found in the car with him have yet to be identified. But the bottom line in that this is sad any way you come at it. Twenty-one years old is too young to die, for any reason.
