Audio from the 911 call regarding the discovery of Buckwild star Shain Gandee and two others has just been released, in which a friend of the reality star is completely distraught at the horrific discovery of three dead bodies.
Gandee, 21, his uncle David Gandee, 48, and Robert Myers, 27, were found dead in a vehicle in the Sissonville area of Kanawha County, West Virginia. According to the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office's autopsy report, the manner of death was accidental and the cause was carbon monoxide poisoning.
"We've been looking for them for two days, oh my God," the caller says. When asked by the emergency responder if the three were breathing, he replies through tears, "No ma'am, they're dead."
MTV has halted production on season two of Buckwild, due to Gandee's tragic death.
"We are shocked and saddened by the terrible news about Shain Gandee, and those involved in this tragic incident," MTV 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."
