Newspaper featuring MTV star’s death getting high bids on eBay

    MTV fame still pays off in death, evidently. A local newspaper cover featuring coverage of Jackass star Ryan Dunn’s death is drawing high bids on eBay.

    Tuesday’s edition of the West Chester Daily Local is worth $11,000 to one bidder. It’s listed as the winning bid. That person who offered $2.25 had no idea what was coming.


    The Daily Local picked up the story this morning when the most recent bid was $10,100. Seller “jayne918” described the paper as new and unread.

    Dunn, a West Chester resident, died Monday night in a single-car crash in nearby West Goshen. Post-crash reports reveal drinking and speeding were at play in the fiery wreck that also killed Dunn’s passenger and friend, Zachary Hartwell.
