Shain Gandee, one of the stars of MTV's reality show, "Buckwild" may have been found dead on Monday morning and production of the show's second season may be suspended, but his Twitter account continues.

Gandee, 21, was discovered in a truck on Monday near Sissonville, W.Va., on Monday, along with the bodies of his uncle David Gandee, 48, and friend David Robert Myers, 27. The vehicle was discovered partially submerged in a mud pit. Though no official cause of death has been released, authorities told the Associated Press that no foul play was suspected. The car's exhaust pipe was submerged below the mud and authorities have stated that death by carbon monoxide poisoning is a possibility.

MTV has confirmed that production for the second season of "Buckwild," following the goofy antics of a group of Appalachian twentysomethings, has been suspended.

Meanwhile, Gandee's official Twitter account, @MTVShain, has been turned into an "Angel" account in which "You will get tweets daily from Heaven."

Sample tweet: "Looking over you.. Thanks for all the love. Its not a goodbye its a ill see you soon. #LetTheGoodTimesRoll."

By contrast, one of Gandee's final Tweets was sent Saturday, the day before he was declared missing. The tweet: "Saturday night!!! Lets get drunk people!!!"

Gandee was last seen with his uncle at a Sissonville bar early Sunday morning.
