Shain Gandee, Buck Wild


A heartbreaking 911 call further illustrates the tragic scene from Monday morning, when Buckwild's Shain Gandee, David Gandee and Donald Myers were found dead in his vehicle.

The conversation between a friend of Gandee's and the dispatcher was released today, and immediately the shock was clear in his voice. 

"I have an emergency, I have three dead people," he quickly said, before attempting to explain his location, which was difficult since he was on back-country trails in Sissonville, W. Va.

The dispatcher asked questions to try and pinpoint an exact location, but all he could tell her was that Gandee and the other two men were, "up on a hill in a mud hole and a Bronco too, we've been looking for them for two days. Oh my God."

And that's when his emotions take over and we can hear the pain and sorrow in his voice. 

Gandee's friend struggles to continue answering the dispatcher's questions, but states that there was no evidence of foul play, drugs or a gun. And when asked if they were any signs of the three men breathing, he simply said, "No ma'am, they're dead."
