This is heartbreaking!
Buckwild star Shain Gandee's lifeless body was discovered early this morning in a car in West Virginia.
The 21-year-old, lovingly nicknamed "Gandee Candy," was found dead — along with two other undisclosed bodies — after being reported missing just 31 hours before.
The reality star disappeared yesterday after he and his uncle David Gandee told others that they wanted to go 4-wheeling.
Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper said:

Lindsay Lohan was wondering why everyone was "in such a panic" about Hurricane Sandy and here's an unfortunate answer for her.
Twenty-six people have reportedly died from the "Frankenstorm" in the U.S., while 6-7 million are without power in the “the largest storm related outage in our history.”
Much of the New York City area is underwater and West Virginia has been buried in snow. Beach communities suffered the most though.
The Seaside Heights boardwalk, the New Jersey tourist attraction that provided Snooki and JWOWW with years of partying, has been completely destroyed (above).
So unbelievably sad!
New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg calls the storm "the worst NYC has ever experienced" and adds

According to some cray cray new lawsuit … indeed they are!
What on EARTH?!
Given the current - and serious - legal drama they're in due to her divorce from Kris Humphries, this kind of CRAZINESS must be welcomed for laughs alone!
Apparently, Kim Kardashian and her man, Kanye West, are being sued by none other than Jonathan Lee Riches, the Guiness World Record holder for "The World's Most Litigious Man," as he's filed over 5,000 suits in the past eight years!
And what exactly have the new couple done to warrant such an honor?
Why, they've been sneaking around the hills of West Virginia with members of Al-Qaeda!
Yes - seriously. That's what they're being sued for. Try to control your giggling. This man is trying to be serious.

Remember when Andy Dick was accused of grabbing a bouncer's crotch, along with groping and kissing another bar patron in West Virginia while he was in town for a performance?
He was supposed to go to trial to face criminal charges, but has found another lucky break and has agreed to enter a pre-trial diversion program.
Basically, if he doesn't get arrested or use drugs for 6 months, he'll be absolved of the sex abuse charges. If he fails, he'll be tried on felony charges.
Stipulations include random drug tests and reporting to the county prosecutor's office IF he's arrested ANYWHERE in the country. We wonder if that would happen considering the comedian didn't even bother showing up for his hearing on Monday.
The most difficult part of this agreement may be for the fallen star to remain employed. That might be kinda hard if he keeps whipping his peen out on stage!
Get it together, Andy! We may be tired of your antics, but we don't want to see you go to jail.

Oh boy! The law is coming for that ass!
Andy Dick has been ordered to stand trial in a West Virginia courtroom for felony sexual abuse charges, which stem from the comedian being accused of grabbing a bouncer's crotch and groping and kissing another bar-goer in Huntington while he was in town for a performance!
Judge Paul Farrell has set the trial date for January 17th, and Dick has been ordered to submit a urine test. Despite Dick asserting that he's now sober, if he's discovered to be under the influence, he's going to jail!
Here's hoping that he takes this warning seriously - we doubt he's going to receive any more slaps on the wrist for his ridiculous behavior!

A study released Thursday has found that black lung disease in coal miners is on the rise in the US after significantly declining since Congress passed tougher mine safety laws!
The findings came after an investigation was ordered by West Virginia governor Joe Manchin to look into the the worst U.S. coal mining disaster in four decades in the state.
75% of the 29 miners that tragically died in in the blast at the Upper Big Branch mine in West Virginia last spring showed signs of black lung!
Davitt McAteer, who headed the investigation, calls the sample "a terrifying number, an astonishing number, particularly given the age of some of these individuals."
With the rising cost of coal, mine operators are being accused of sacrificing safety in favor of profits. Specifically, the investigation pointed at the company behind West Virginia disaster, Massey Energy, saying "the operator's commitment to production comes at the cost of safety."
Not cool! Let's hope coal mining companies get their acts together or the government cracks down on those putting profits ahead of employee safety!
