Shain Gandee Memorial Mud Run draws large crowd in Proctorville, OH

Posted: Updated:

Nearly 100 people showed up on Wednesday for the Shain Gandee Memorial Mud Run in Proctorville, Ohio.

Trucks, ATVs, and motorcycles lined the parking lot by the 31st Street Bridge to parade out to a nearby recreation area in Lawrence County to raise money for Gandee's family.

Riders sported t-shirts made for the ride. Some participants drove more than two hours to show their support for the family. "We don't personally know Shain, but I think it's awesome of Ashley to do this. We fell in love with him like a lot of people did from the show "Buckwild" and just wanted to show his family support," said Samantha Parks.

Several news outlets have reported that the producers for the MTV show, Zoo Productions, will pay for Gandee's service and burial.

Monies raised by other entities and events will now be set aside to help pay for the cost of the search that was conducted to find the three men.

MTV said production crews were not with a young star of the reality show "BUCKWILD" when he died over Easter weekend and hadn't filmed him since earlier in the week.

Shain Gandee, his 48-year-old uncle, David Gandee, and 27-year-old Donald Robert Myers were found dead Monday in Shain Gandee's SUV near Sissonville.

Autopsies determined that all three died of carbon monoxide poisoning, possibly caused by the vehicle's tailpipe being submerged in mud. That could have allowed the invisible gas to fill the vehicle's cabin.

MTV spokesman Jake Urbanski said Wednesday it will be at least a few weeks before producers and cast members decide whether to continue shooting season two.
