Authorities now believe that MTV star Shain Gandee may have died from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Shain, star of ‘Buckwild’, and two others likely died from toxic exhaust fumes that filled his Bronco when it became stuck in the mud.
The 21-year-old, his uncle and another man who has not been identified, were found unresponsive in Gandee’s truck Monday morning, after being reported missing early Sunday.
“Foul play has been ruled out,” Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper of West Virginia told PEOPLE on Tuesday. “Carbon monoxide poisoning is the likely probable cause of death, pending official results from the state of West Virginia medical examiner’s office. State law requires an autopsy.”
With the vehicle knee-deep in mud, toxic fumes from the car were likely unable to escape through the tailpipe.
Gandee – whose MTV bio page described him as a “sociable and loyal” family man – is remembered by the network as “a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met and we will miss him dearly.”
How sad. Above is a picture of his SUV after it had been pulled out of the mud.

Shain Gandee, 21, of MTV’s show ‘Buckwild,’ has been reported missing by family. He was last seen at 3:00 a.m. on Sunday at Larry’s Bar in Sissonville with his uncle David Gandee, 48. The two reportedly said they were going off-roading in Shain’s Bronco.
Neither he nor his uncle told anyone where they were going, and no one knows which direction they went when they left the bar.
The two haven’t been seen since.
Both have been missing for 31 hours. Family members spent most of the day Sunday trying to track them down, according to the statement.
Shain’s Bronco is red and white with license plate No. 3UD308.
No foul play is expected, authorities said.
Anyone with information is asked to call 304-357-0169.
So let me get this right, the two were off drinking at a bar, and wander off at 3:00 a.m. saying they were going to go off-roading. Off-roading at 3:00 a.m.? No one tried to stop them?? 31 hours is a long time to be missing. I hope this ends well.

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham is telling people she’s not a party girl and she got a DUI last week because of an “illness,” but honestly after seeing these photos, it’s a BIT hard to believe…
Just 24 hours after Farrah was arrested for DUI last week (she blew nearly twice the legal limit) and kept making excuses for her the results of the tests (btw, coughing and being sick doesn’t put THAT much alcohol in your veins!), the mom tweeted, “It’s amazing what people believe and make up!”
Well, is it made up?!
Because photos surfaced from a real boozefest held January at Halo Ultra Lounge in Omaha. The promoter tells TMZ that Halo was hosting a lingerie soiree, and our “good girl” Farrah showed up with a bunch of slutty-looking girls, wearing next to nothing. The girls were all over each other, swigging champagne from the bottle and generally getting rowdy.
Farrah, are you sure you’re such a good girl? Because all the plastic surgery, partying and fame mongering aren’t super convincing.
