MTV's Buckwild Star Shain Gandee Officially Died From Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

| Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

shain gandee buckwild carbon monoxide poisoning cause of death confirmed ruled accident

We all had a pretty good idea that this was going to be the cause, but at the time it was just speculation.

The coroners office has just confirmed that Buckwild's Shain Gandee, his uncle, and a third person all died due to carbon monoxide poisoning. What happened was the Bronco got stuck in the mud, with the exhaust pipe submerged. This caused the gas to leak back into the vehicle.

All of the deaths were ruled accidental, but it still doesn't make the whole situation any less sad!

Our hearts go out to the family of each of those who lost their lives. It's tragic, especially when we hear Shain's family isn't able to afford a funeral, and is looking to fundraising to help.

So sad.

    Surely his earnings from the show is enough to bury him.

    The Darwin Awards commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives: by eliminating themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species' chance of long-term survival. In other words, they are cautionary tales about people who kill themselves in really stupid ways, and in doing so, significantly improve the gene pool by eliminating themselves from the human race.

    This does seem ridiculous. He is very close to a wealthy part of Charleston I am sure a funeral home would do his funeral. I know Hollow (hollar) funerals they have done. Like I said, Jen Garner grew up in Kanawha co. but in the hills where they don't go "muddin" or speak with "tale tale" accents. Maybe she could chip in. I am simply confused though I have never known a community in Wv let one of its own (not its own even just in their proximity) go w/out. I have never heard of it. MTV's new tag line "we exploit them, not bury them. I never lived in a rural area but had family in every crack of it. Anyway…I don't think their trash just so easy to exploitRe: pollopicu – My father grew up more rural than Buckwild and he has his doctorate it is unusual but he had opportunity. I don't doubt your better than all of us

    I find it hard to believe that the vehicle would continue running (long enough to cause carbon-monoxide asphyxiation/poisoning) when the exhaust was buried in the mud. It SHOULD have choked out the engine, and furthermore - if it can't come out the tailpipe, how exactly does it leak back into the cab? Something seems rather fishy here…

    Very sad but how the fuck does this make it to your Fitperez page? You cashing in on a dead man is not surprising at all, asshole!

    @ pollopicu,
    You're the one missing several genes. No person with a normal brain would spew such hurtful trash. This boy had family and friends who loved him he was a normal human being.
