What reality TV also taketh. Unfortunately, we are sad to report that another MTV reality star has passed away. One of the MAIN stars on the NEW & popular series "Buckwild", Shain Gandee was found dead in a vehicle in West Virginia this  morning. Shain was last heard from around 3 AM on Sunday morning, when he and his uncle  David told people they planned to go 4-wheeling, but after a few hours after not returning, were reported missing. Shain, his 48-year-old uncle David Gandee, and a third unidentified body were  discovered dead in the vehicle in Sissonville, West Virginia. It is now being reported that they may have most likely died from carbon monoxide poisioning due to the truck being found submerged in the mud PAST the windows.

MTV has released a statement, saying, "We are shocked and saddened by the  terrible news about Shain Gandee, and those involved in this tragic incident. We  are waiting for more information but at this time, our main concern is for the  Gandee family and their friends. Our thoughts and prayers are  with them. Shain had a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that  touched everyone he met and we will miss him dearly."

The rep says production of "Buckwild" has since been suspended. Sad story.
