Cute Redneck star of MTV's "Buckwild" is dead at 21.

Uncle also dead in vehicle with a third. Wondering if this was DL's longtime uncle-nephew poster.

Shain Gandee (a creative spelling of the first name).

R41, this past winter in Boston a 14-year-old kid died from carbon monoxide poisoning. It was very tragic. We'd had a blizzard and he was outside helping his father shovel. He got cold and tired and decided to rest inside the car for a bit, but the tailpipe was still covered with snow and the car filled up with carbon monoxide. After 15 minutes the father finished up and went inside the car and found his son unconscious. Because of this a safety alert was issued about shoveling snow away from the car's exhaust pipe.

A friend of mine has a son-in-law who not too long ago discovered his sister, her husband and a friend of theirs dead in a vehicle they were off-roading in. They got stuck in mud and revved it so fiercely that they were rapidly overcome by carbon monoxide poisoning. Apparently one of them was in the process of opening a window and had only gotten it down a couple inches before they passed out and asphyxiated.

Yes they are asking for money, raising funds by doing what killed the guy:

Despite Shain's fame since "Buckwild's" premiere in January, he did not have much money and his family is struggling to pay for his funeral. So they are planning to both raise funds and honor their beloved with a "mud run" on Wednesday in Proctorville, Ohio, which is not far from Charleston, West Virginia, where the show is filmed. For $10 per vehicle, participants can take part in the off-road event, which was one of his favorite pastimes. Ashley Gandee Lewis will also be accepting donations at her Crown City, Ohio, general store, where the reality star made an appearance on Saturday for the grand opening. "We actually had people here from Texas, from Dayton, Ohio, from Pennsylvania," she told Radar Online. "People drove hundreds of miles just to meet him because he was such a lovable guy."

Allow me to explain "muddin"

These hicks get into big trucks and go up trails that are for ATVs. Not for trucks. The reason they call it "muddin" is because the big trucks get stuck in the mud of the track that they are not supposed to be driving on.

This Shain person has been shown laughing about a girl he took "muddin" who was ascairt becuz he wuz goin 60 mph on a narrow trail in his big truck. In the mud. She jumpt out and sed she ain't never doin that agin becaust it wuz dangeriz. Hee, hee! Can you majjin? Takin a big truck onto a muddy trail that is too small for it and goin 60 mph -- dangerizz?

Well. Yeah. It is. Y'all git stuck and don't have the sense to shet yore car off when yer tailpipe is buried, y'all can die.

And git this -- the local po-leese officer made sure to tell the press that not only does e'erybody go muddin round them parts, but that it ain't got no 'g' on the endda it. It's muddin, not mudding.

'Buckwild' Producer Rips MTV: 'This Will Get Ugly' (Exclusive)

11:01 PM PDT 4/9/2013 by Lacey Rose

The sudden cancellation of MTV’s hit reality series Buckwild following star Shain Gandee’s death has producer J.P. Williams livid.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter late Tuesday, Williams, who manages most of the cast members and produces the show, took particular aim at MTV for pulling the plug midway through filming on the second season.

"This is the network that has shows about teen pregnancy. They'll stick by a show that allows you to abandon a child, but a kid dies by accident doing what he does for a living [mudding], and they cancel the show?” he fumes. “There's something that smells of s--- here on every level."

PHOTOS: The Dark Side of Reality TV: 25 Tragic Deaths

Reps for MTV could not immediately be reached for comment.

News of the show’s cancellation comes a week or so after Gandee, 21, was found dead April 1 in his vehicle, along with his uncle and a friend, after going off-roading, or “mudding,” on a remote road in West Virginia. The local sheriff’s office ruled the death was caused by carbon monoxide poisoning. The network had suspended production as it considered whether to continue the hit series, which was intended to fill a void left by one-time juggernaut Jersey Shore.

According to Williams, his Beverly Hills-based Parallel Entertainment along with production company Zoo Productions were informed Friday that MTV would be moving forward with the series. At that time, the network had four episodes in the can and was planning to shoot four more, plus a special dedicated to Gandee to kick off the season. But Williams says MTV brass followed up Tuesday with a different message for the show’s producers: The network had opted to cancel the series instead.

“There was no explanation,” he says, still bewildered. He adds that the cast, which had planned to come to Los Angeles for the MTV Movie Awards this weekend, had not been informed of the news. The network is expected to formally announce the show’s cancellation Wednesday morning. A special, which was shot before Gandee’s death and was produced by an outside production company, is still expected to air.

Williams, who manages eight of the show’s cast members, including Gandee, does not intend to move on to other projects. In fact, he suggests that he will continue shooting the series and will look to produce a Buckwild film, which he would self-finance if need be. "My job is to protect these kids,” he tells THR, adding: “This will get ugly.”
