Star of MTV's "Buckwild" Found Dead in West Virginia

  SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - One of the stars of MTV's "BUCKWILD" has been found dead along with two other people in an apparent off-road accident in West Virginia.
 
     Twenty-one-year-old Shain Gandee, his uncle David Gandee, and a third person who has not been identified were last seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at a bar in Sissonville. They had told people that they were going four-wheeling.
 
     The Kanawha County Sheriff's Department says their 1984 Ford Bronco was found in a ditch near Gandee's home about 15 miles outside of Charleston with the three men inside. Search teams had to use all-terrain vehicles to reach the site, which they described as "very muddy" and "very rough." 
 
     Gandee had become a breakout star of the reality show that follows the antics of a group reality star of young friends enjoying a wild country lifestyle. MTV announced in February that "BUCKWILD" would be picked up for a second season, after pulling in an average of 3 million viewers per episode in its first season.
 
     MTV issued a statement saying it was shocked and saddened to learn of Gandee's death, describing him as "a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met."
