Swamp People Cast Member Mitchell Guist Dies

Mitchell Guist, one of my favourite Swamp People cast members, tragically died on May 14 after collapsing on board of his boat. Sheriff Mike Waguespack of Assumption Parish said that Guist was pronounced dead at the hospital on Monday morning. It is assumed that Mitchell suffered a seizure. More information to what caused the death will be announced in the coroners report due in about four weeks.

The History Channel published the following statement on their website:
“We are extremely saddened to report that our friend and beloved member of the Swamp People family, Mitchell Guist, has passed away … Mitchell passed on the swamp, doing what he loved. We appreciate your respect for the Guist family’s privacy and hope you join us in sending our thoughts and prayers to his brother, Glenn, and the rest of the Guist family.”
Swampers through and through, Mitchell and his brother Glen Guist were born and raised on the bayou and lived entirely off the land. These brothers were always up to something, whether it was hunting for their dinner or making use of everything nature has to offer.
