Shain Gandee Funeral Fundraiser: Scheduled for Tomorrow

by at . Comments

In the wake of Shain Gandee's tragic death yesterday, the cousin of this Buckwild star is springing into fundraising action.

Ashley Gandee tells TMZ that Shain's parents cannot afford a true funeral for their 21-year old son, so she is organizing a "mud run" tomorrow night in Proctorville, Ohio.

There will be a $10 charge per vehicle and proceeds will go toward laying Shain to rest.

"I know the strain they are going through," Ashley says. "It's hard to provide a proper burial. It's already tough with the loss of family members ... expenses are tough as well."

Shain's body was one of three discovered early yesterday by officials in West Virginia.

He, his uncle and an unidentified woman were stuck inside a Ford Bronco, which was nearly buried completely in mud off deep in the town woods.

Initial reports point to carbon monoxide poisoning as the cause of death.

In response to the incident - along with two other arrests for Buckwild cast members - Mayor Danny Jones wants MTV to halt production on the series.

Do you agree? Should Buckwild be canceled?
