'Buckwild' star Shain Gandee

‘Buckwild’ star Shain Gandee went a little too wild. The reality show cast member was found dead in a vehicle in Kanawha County, West Virginia along with his uncle and another mystery body. Shain, 21 and his uncle were last seen at Larry’s Bar in Sissonville at 3 in the morning on Sunday when they announced they were going four-wheeling. Yep, that’ll kill you. ‘Buckwild’, the red neck version of Jersey Shore, began airing in January and had been picked up for a second season. Filming of the new season has now been suspended, much to the delight of West Virginian Sentator Joe Manchin who petitioned to have the series cancelled, saying it was “repulsive” and “plays to ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of West Virginia.” USA Today

James HolmesJustice is death for James Holmes. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for James Holmes, who is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 70 at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises last July. Prosecutors rejected the offer from Holmes’s lawyers to plead guilty in order to avoid execution and have instead decided to go to trial. While some of the victims and their families did not welcome the idea of a lengthy trial, other were excited. And one was a little too excited: “I had a huge adrenaline rush,” Bryan Beard, whose best friend Alex Sullivan was killed in the attack, told the Associated Press at the courthouse. “I love the choice, I love it, I love it… I hope I’m in the room when he dies.” BBC News

ADHD-ChildrenAre kids getting more annoying these days? Seems that way: New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that nearly one in five high school age boys in the United States and 11 percent of school-age children over all have received a medical diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This is a 16 percent increase from 2007 and 53 percent over the past 10 years. About two thirds of those kids are prescribed stimulants such as Adderall or Ritalin, which worries some doctors who say that mild symptoms are being treated too readily. New York Times

district-attorney-texasWord on the street is that the Aryan Brotherhood is back in Texas. Investigators trying to solve the murders of a North Texas district attorney, his wife and an assistant prosecutor are focusing on a local white supremacist prison gang known for brutal retaliations against its own members, running a meth lab and murder. District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were shot to death at their home, nearly two months after one of his assistants died in a daytime shooting outside the north Texas county’s courthouse. McLelland had been on a public mission to hunt down the “scum” that had assassinated his assistant. I guess the scum found him first. CNN

Copacabana-Beach-ResortAdd Rio to the list of places not to go… Two foreign tourists were held on a Rio de Janeiro mini bus for hours, the female sexually assaulted and the male handcuffed and badly beaten. The couple was then dumped in the nearby city of Itaborai, after being forced to to withdraw money from cash machines. Two men aged 20 and 22 have been taken into custody and a third is being sought in connection with the incident. And Rio was trying so hard to get their sh*t together for next year’s soccer World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics… CBC News
