For the first time since Shain Gandee died early yesterday morning, authorities have spoken out on the accident that took the life of this 21-year old and two others.
"Foul play has been ruled out," Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper of West Virginia told People, while an autopsy has confirmed yesterday's hypothesis:
All three victims died from carbon monoxide poisoning.
As previously reported:
- Ganee was last seen around 3 a.m. on Sunday, telling people he was going four-wheeling with his uncle David.
- The bodies of Shain, David and an unidentified woman were found in a Ford Bronco yesterday, submerged up to its windows in mud.
- In response, Shain's cousin is organizing a mud run tomorrow to raise funeral funds.
- And the mayor of Charleston, West Virginia has called on MTV to cancel Buckwild.
Wrote Gandee's cousin, Ashley Gandee Lewis, on Facebook: "The family feels that Shain died peacefully in his sleep without pain or suffering."
