'Buckwild' Star Shain Gandee Found Dead at 21

Shain Gaindee has been found dead in a vehicle on Monday morning (April 1) in West Virgina.

The 21-year-old star of the MTV reality series Buckwild was reported missing 31 hours prior, just after he and his uncle told people that they planned on going four-wheeling, according to TMZ.

Two other bodies were discovered in the vehicle with Shain, but it is unclear at the moment whether one of them is his uncle.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Shain‘s family and friends during this difficult time.

    Good, I am laughing :)

    Oh my god! That is so sad. I am in tears, I would hope this is an April the first joke, that is so so sad. I just cannot believe that.

    Well, duh. I mean, did you expect he’d live to be 100?

    Driving dangerously in car carries the risk of dying. Driving safely in a car carries a pretty high risk of dying, about the most dangerous thing we do in a daily basis. It’s one thing for a teenager to act his way. But grown adults doing it get what they have coming to them.

    Gone too young. It is sad when a young person dies whether they are semi famous or not.

    I live 20 minutes from sissionville and a good friend of mine is a cousin to shain, this is not a April fools joke, I have heard from him and also its on our local news. I know he made some bad judgements and I dont agree with how they lived their life but it is so sad he lost his life so young, Someome has lost their son. Prayers for the family.

  • Um…

    You guys realize this is an April Fools joke on TMZ’s part, right?

    @Voldemort: @Um…: Wrong. If you actually believe that even TMZ would stoop this low not to mention deliberately set themselves up for a lawsuit, I have SO many bridges to sell you.

    @Um…: Man, I’m so stunned by your ignorance that I had to reply twice. You have really made me wonder if you’re kidding are really this obtuse.
