Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia authorities say a cast member of the MTV reality show “BUCKWILD” has been found dead, along with his uncle and a third, unidentified person.
Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department Cpl. B.D. Humphreys says 21-year-old Shain Gandee and 48-year-old David Gandee were found Monday in a vehicle near Sissonville.
Humphreys says relatives had been searching since early Sunday morning for both men. They were last seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at a bar in Sissonville.
Humphreys says no foul play is expected.
MTV said in a statement that Shain had a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met.
