SISSONVILLE, W.Va. -- West Virginia authorities say a cast member of the MTV reality show “BUCKWILD” has been found dead, along with his uncle and a third, unidentified person.

Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department Cpl. B.D. Humphreys says 21-year-old Shain Gandee and 48-year-old David Gandee were found Monday in a vehicle near Sissonville.

Humphreys says relatives had been searching since early Sunday morning for both men. They were last seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at a bar in Sissonville.

Humphreys says no foul play is expected.

MTV said in a statement that Shain had a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met.

This article is a waste of space. Three people dead in a car, no foul play? Also - is "no foul play expected" even in English? Perhaps they mean no foul play suspected. A magnetic personality with a passion for life? Did anyone ever see the show? Is this a filler because the Gazette can't afford reporters???
