SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (WKYT) - West Virginia authorities say that a sport utility vehicle found with the bodies of an MTV reality show cast member and two others inside was stuck in a mud pit.

Kanawha County Sheriff's Cpl. B.D. Humphreys says 21-year-old "BUCKWILD" cast member Shain Gandee, his 48-year-old uncle David Gandee and 27-year-old Donald Robert Myers were found Monday near Sissonville.

While the cause of their deaths was being investigated, Humphreys said the Ford Bronco's muffler was below the surface and that mud covered the passenger side. No foul play is expected.

Humphreys says they were last seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at a bar in Sissonville.

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