Ryan Dunn, dead or alive?

Jackass star Ryan Dunn died on Monday morning in a car crash in Pennsylvania at the age of 34.
The news was confirmed by April Margera.
Dunn and another passenger died in a 03:00 crash in his Porsche 911 GT3 on Route 322 in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania. 

Hours before his accident he posted this photo on his Twitter profile, which shows him drinking with two friends.
Meanwhile, Jackass crew expressed their grief by issuing the following statement:
"I don’t really know what to say right now everybody because the sadness is overwhelming, but today we lost one of our own. Our brother Ryan Dunn has passed. He died in a car wreck in West Goshen, Pennsylvania, this morning at 3:00am. Goddamn that's tough to write.
As we get more info we will let you know, but right now our hearts go out to his family and to his beloved Angie. Ryan will be missed and remembered by us all. Thanks for the kind words of support everybody."

In a tweet, Johnny Knoxville said, "RIP Ryan, I love you buddy."

Tom Green wrote "Just heard that Ryan Dunn from Jackass died last night in a car wreck. Rest In Peace Ryan,"
Dunn's fans also expressed their grief on MTV.com, saying "We will never forget all the laughs you gave us" and "Rest in peace, bro. You're pranking God now, that lucky bastard."

Bam Margera has yet to join Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O and his other fellow Jackass co-stars in releasing a statement about the loss of their dear comrade, Ryan Dunn, who died early this morning in a fatal car crash at the age of 34. But his parents April and Phil Margera have opened up about their son’s grief as well as their own in an on-air interview. 

“I think we are still processing the whole thing, really,” April told earlier today in a video interview. “I know you are, I am, and we’re just worried, you know, about our Bam. He’s out of town and was just told, so, he’s devastated, needless to say. 

She continued: “I mean, we’re close with all the Jackass guys but, you know, of course, the Jackass guys from West Chester who spent a lifetime here at our house, especially when they were younger in high school … and they’ve made something of themselves. Ryan was just Bam’s really dear friend, and we just loved him. We all did.”
“I just, I actually can’t even believe it,” April added.

With all the rumors that are generated in the media these days, Phil thought Ryan’s death was a hoax at first.
April said she even would receive Mother’s Day wishes from Ryan.

Steve-O Tweeted the simple statement: “I don’t know what to say, except I love Ryan Dunn and I’m really going to miss him.”

But now this article came online suggesting the whole thing was a hoax to market the new upcoming movie, I don’t know if it is true.

If it is not, all condolences to the family and RIP Ryan!
