According to MTV, the 21-year-old was last seen at a bar early Sunday morning when patrons say he left with his uncle to go off-roading. MTV released a statement saying in part: "Shain had a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met and we will miss him dearly."


(CNN) - Jury selection will begin today in the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit. Jackson's family is suing AEG Live, claiming the concert promoter is liable in the pop star's death. The suit accuses AEG of the negligent hiring of Dr. Conrad Murray. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and is serving a prison sentence. AEG says Murray was Jackson's employee. Jackson died two weeks before his "This Is It" comeback concerts in 2009. The concerts were organized by AEG Live.


(CNN) - An antique Motown piano is back in Detroit and fully restored thanks to Paul McCartney. The Beatles legend helped pay for the 1877 Steinway Grand Piano's restoration. The Motown Museum announced the instrument's return to the museum Monday. McCartney decided to pitch in with the piano's restoration after learning during a Motown visit that it was in such disrepair it couldn't be played. The museum has scheduled a public viewing for the piano on April 25th -- Esther Gordy Edwards Community Day.
