Shain Gandee best known for being on the MTV reality television series “Buckwild,” has been found dead.

“Buckwild” production has shut down production of the “Jackass-like” show, due to the loss of “Gandee Candy.”

Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department Corporal Brian Humphreys confirmed to MTV News that the bodies of Shain Gandee, 21 and his uncle, David Gandee, 48, were discovered on Monday (April 1) morning, along with that of a third, as yet unidentified person.

At press time, Humphreys said that there is “no reason” to believe that foul play was a factor in their deaths. He could not confirm reports that the vehicle was found submerged in water or overturned. Corporal Humphreys described the scene as being very remote and inaccessible by police vehicles, with investigators forced to use ATV’s to gain access to the site.

“The medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death, and they will release that information,” he added. Humphreys also noted that there did not appear to be signs of any other vehicles in the area.

MTV has confirmed that Season 2 has been suspended and that no other decision regarding the show’s fate has been made.

“We are shocked and saddened by the terrible news about Shain Gandee, and those involved in this tragic incident,” the network said in a statement.

“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.”
