SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - Shooting for the second season of the MTV reality show "BUCKWILD" has been suspended after a popular cast member was found dead along with two others inside a sport utility vehicle in West Virginia.

Authorities say Shain Gandee was found dead Monday in the vehicle, which was found partially submerged in a deep mud pit about a mile from his home near Sissonville. Also inside were the bodies of his uncle and another man.

Kanawha County Sheriff's Cpl. B.D. Humphreys says the Ford Bronco's muffler was below the surface and that mud covered the passenger side. No foul play is suspected.

Authorities say the cause of the deaths was still under investigation.

Gandee was a breakout star of the show that followed the antics of a group of young friends.
