Update No.17- NEW SEASON OF BUCKWILD- Click Image to read more

 

UPDATE NO.16 (Looks like the last Update wasn’t the last one)

Buckwild’ Producer to MTV: ‘This Will Get Ugly’ as reported by The Hollywood Reporter (THR)

 

The sudden cancellation of MTV’s hit reality series Buckwildfollowing star Shain Gandee’s death has producer J.P. Williams livid

 

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter late Tuesday, Williams, who manages most of the cast members and produces the show, took particular aim at MTV for pulling the plug midway through filming on the second season.

“This is the network that has shows about teen pregnancy. They’ll stick by a show that allows you to abandon a child, but a kid dies by accident doing what he does for a living [mudding], and they cancel the show?” he fumes. “There’s something that smells of s— here on every level.”

 

Williams, who manages eight of the show’s cast members, including Gandee, does not intend to move on to other projects. In fact, he suggests that he will continue shooting the series and will look to produce a Buckwild film, which he would self-finance if need be. “My job is to protect these kids,” he tells THR, adding: “This will get ugly.”

 

 

 

UPDATE No. 15 The last Update in this article

We just learned that MTV decided to cancel Buckwild. So, it is not the production company behind the Buckwild, it is MTV. We picked this up from TMZ and this is what they say:

 

A rep for MTV tells TMZ … “Given Shain’s tragic passing and essential presence on the show, we felt it was not appropriate to continue without him.”

The rep adds, “Instead, we are working on a meaningful way to pay tribute to his memory on our air and privately.”

MTV says … this weekend, it will have a “day of programming dedicated to Shain in which we will air the entire first season of ‘Buckwild’.”

UPDATE No.9 Mud Run for Shain

 

Just two days after the ‘Buckwild’ star was found dead from carbon monoxide poisoning, the first annual Shain Gandee Memorial Mud Run was held, with over 100 people showing up to pay tribute to him.

UPDATE No.8 (4/3/13)

 

Chilling Shain Gandee 911 call. This is very very sad, please do not listen if you don’t want your hearth broken.

 

 

UPDATE No. 7

We’ve all seen some fake FB groups collecting money for Shain Gandee’s funeral (most of these FB pages are called R.I.P Shain Gandee) and we also witnessed Shain’s cousin Ashley collecting money for the funeral (check UPDATE No.5 for the link to this page) on her page which is the only page connected with the family.

It looks like producers behind the show have decided to pay for the funeral, more in this report from TMZ

 

The two production companies behind the MTV reality show “Buckwild” have offered to pay for all of Shain Gandee’s funeral expenses, TMZ has learned.

Parallel Entertainment CEO J.P. Williams — who produces the show with Zoo Productions — tells us, “Shain was a great kid with a big heart who had endless love for his mom and dad.” He adds, “I am from West Virginia and this show reminded me of how I grew up.”

A public service for Shain will be held this Sunday.

As for the donation websites that have been raising money to help pay for the funeral — we’re told that money will now go toward expenses incurred by Shain’s family during the recovery effort.

We’re told any remaining money will go towards the funeral of the other two men that were killed, including Shain’s uncle.

 

UPDATE No.6

 

Looks like it’s official. Carbon Monoxide is the cause of the death of Shain Gandee, his uncle and his friend. The death was ruled an accident. The truck’s exhaust pipe had been submerged in some heavy mud, causing the poisonous gas to leak back into the Shain’s Ford Bronco.

 

Partial findings from the autopsies on 21-year-old Shain, his uncle David Gandee, 48, and friend Robert Myers, 27, were released Tuesday. 

The manner of death was accidental. Carbon monoxide poisoning was listed as the cause, said Cpl. Brian Humphreys, a spokesman for the Kanawha Sheriff’s Department.

 

 

how did shain gandee died

UPDATE No.5 (4/2/13)

According to the one of the Buckwild cast members they all got around $8,000/each for the first season of Buckwild. Now, even though they gained a huge popularity (especially Shain Gandee) they continued to live their lives as if they are not TV stars.

That’s why it is understandable to see Shain’s cousin, Ashley Gandee, organizing a memorial “mud run” (an off-road trucking event) to ease the financial strain on Shain’s family. You can get more info on her FB page .

Ashley Gandee Lewis, says the event is set for Wednesday afternoon in Proctorville, Ohio. She says participants will meet at 4:30 p.m. at the Proctorville Kroger. The cost is $10 for riders and $5 for spectators.

 

 

Proceeds will go to pay for funeral costs. Lewis says the fundraisers were arranged because no parent should have to pay for the costs to bury their own child.

A bulldozer and an ATV head up the hollow to assist in the recovery effort of the 1984 Ford Bronco which BUCKWILD star Shain Gandee, 21, his uncle David Gandee, 48 , and Robert Myers were found dead.

More info just in from Charleston Daily Mail:

Deputies were using all-terrain vehicles to access the area, which is about a mile and a half up a dirt road, said Cpl. Brian Humphreys, a spokesman for the Kanawha Sheriff’s Department. 

Humphreys said one of Shain’s friends had been searching the trails and ridges for his friend when he found the truck. It was found in a mud pit next to a ridge-top trail, which was passable for four-wheel drive vehicles.

It was about a mile from Shain’s home near Thaxton Hollow. Shain was in the driver’s seat.

“The vehicle sat unevenly, but upright, and was partially submerged in deep mud,” Humphreys said. “Mud was covering the lower part of the passenger side door of the vehicle, but the driver’s side of the vehicle was above the mud.

“The muffler of the vehicle was completely below the surface of the mud.”

Authorities used a bulldozer to pull the Bronco from the mud pit, he said.

UPDATE No.1

This is just in from WOWKTV

Police have told us that family members have been told.

Police were going to use a helicopter to locate Shain and David Gandee, but instead acted on a tip that lead them to Shain’s Ford Branco.  They found the truck stuck in the mud.  Police have not released the cause of death or the name of the third person found.

—————————————————————————————————

This is what I saw at Charleston Daily News:

Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper confirmed that one of the three bodies found in a vehicle off Wolf Pen Drive in Sissonville was Shain Gandee, 21.

Carper said he was told that Shain’s uncle, David Gandee, 48, was also dead in the vehicle.

Neighbors and friends identified the third person as Robert Myers, also of Sissonville. According to Myers’ Facebook page he was recently divorced and just started working at Subway restaurant.

Causes of death have not been released.

The vehicle was reported to 911 dispatchers about 11:30 a.m., about one hour after deputies released a statement that Shain and David had been missing since early Sunday morning. 

Deputies were using all-terrain vehicles to access the area, which is about a mile up a dirt road, Kanawha Cpl. Brian Humphreys said. 

 

He and his uncle were last seen at Larry’s Bar in Sissonville about 3 a.m. Sunday, according to a press release from the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department.

The pair said they were going off-roading in Gandee’s 1984 Ford Bronco with oversized tires.

Family members spent most of Sunday looking for the pair before reporting them missing, according to the press release.

Shain reportedly spent the day before his death at the grand opening of his cousin’s general store in Crown City, Ohio.

 

Still can’t believe you’re gone….please share your comments and prayers.
