(AP) Family, friends and fans are gathering in West Virginia for the funeral for "BUCKWILD" reality TV star Shain Gandee.


About 200 people lined up outside the Charleston Municipal Auditorium on Sunday for a public visitation set to begin at 11 a.m.


The popular "BUCKWILD" cast member, his uncle and another man were found dead last Monday inside a sport utility vehicle that was partially submerged in a deep mud pit about a mile from his home near Sissonville.


Autopsies determined all three died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Police say the muffler was below the surface and that mud covered the passenger side.
