History Channel’s Swamp People is full of young and old brave hunters who would gladly lay down their lives in a bid to kill alligators during the gator season. Even with the impending danger, the reality stars come out unscathed most of the time. However, their luck seems to run out sometimes, and today we take a look at some of the cast who are no longer with us. We’ll be answering questions on who and how many have died on the Swamp People, but first, let’s clear up a few rumors on Willie Edwards’ death rumors.
Willie Edwards from Swamp People is Not Dead. His death is just a rumor.
The Landry family isn’t always the one to steal the show. We’ve also got the Molineres and the Edwards family which comprises of Junior Edwards, his wife Theresa and two sons Willie and Randy Edwards. Recently there were reports made about Willie Edwards kicking the bucket which may not be entirely accurate.
Since its inception, the internet has been the causal agent for many celebrity deaths while they are very much alive. Willie took the hit on this when rumors about his death spread like wildfire. As it turns out, it’s a case of mistaken identity.
The actual Willie in question was an African American white supremacist of the KKK clan who died gruesomely on January 23rd, 1957. Sadly, there was indeed a death in the Edwards family, and likewise, it wasn’t any better.
Swamp People’s Randy Edwards Death. How did he die?
News hit the airwaves back on September 15th, 2018 following the death of beloved reality star Randy Edwards. The family shared the post through their Facebook page as uploaded by Ronnie who asked everyone to respect their privacy in their trying times.
Fans responded in kind by sending their condolences and expressed their heartfelt emotions on how best they remembered the reality star.
Randy Edwards died swiftly at age 35 following a road accident on Highway 3066 in Iberville Parish around 3 a.m. The reality star, who was driving 2002 Chevrolet Silverado attempted to take a left turn but failed, leaving the vehicle to veer off the road
The car came to a stop when it hit a utility pole that sent him flying out of the car. Reports indicate that he must not have been wearing his seatbelt. The young gator hunter was the youngest of all the sons in the Edwards family.
He had made several appearances on the reality show since its inception and carried on the family name without the help of his father.
Edwards Junior stepped down from the show after its 7th season, and now that Willie is all alone, their family’s legacy rests with him. Randy, a Donaldsonville resident, will forever be missed by all his fans and family alike.
Another Swamp People cast Mitchell Guist dies.
No one likes to be the bearer of bad news, but we bring you information of yet another reality star who died by the name Mitchell Guist. The Swamp People star died doing what he loved doing most – gator hunting.
Guist’s death was met on May 14th, 2012 following a fall that robbed him of his precious life. The 47-year-old actor at the time was loading up a few items onto his boat up on Belle River near Pierre Part when he slipped and fell into the water.
There were all sorts of speculations associated with his demise. Many said he had a seizure whereas others couldn’t explain what had just occurred.
However, the correct call made by an Ascension Parish Coroner was that he died of natural causes following a heart attack. He was rushed to the Morgan City Hospital, but nothing could be done to save his life.
Mitchell was born on May 18th, 1964 and mostly spent his time hunting for Alligator gar, Blue and Cray Catfish, Turtles and Squirrels. It’s a shame we won’t get to see him anymore.
Death has proven to strike without a moment’s notice, and the cast of Swamp People have been the at its mercy. So far, Willie Edwards is still alive and kicking despite all the rumors about his death.
