A gay man and a prominent Democratic donor was arrested
yesterday as someone almost died in his home due to a drug
overdose. Two other men had already died in his home of drug
overdoses in the previous two years.
Prosecutors now say that Ed Buck, who lives in West Hollywood,
is a sexual predator who preyed on black men who were struggling
with homelessness. They believe that he had a “sexual fetish”
for injecting his victims with meth to the point of overdose.
But, even if he’s convicted, he would face a maximum sentence of
five years and eight months.
In 2017, Gemmel Moore died of an overdose in Buck’s apartment.
Moore was a young, black sex worker, and several people who knew
him said that Buck, who is white, got sexual pleasure from
giving drugs to black men and watching them take them.
Paramedic’s found Moore naked in Buck’s living room, which was
full of drug paraphernalia.
At the time, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office
believed that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute him
and he wasn’t arrested.
This past January, Timothy Dean, 55, was found dead in Buck’s
apartment due to a meth overdose. Again, Buck wasn’t arrested,
despite outcry from Los Angeles’s black LGBTQ community.
Now a third victim, who has been identified as “Joe Doe” in
court documents, said that he went to Buck’s apartment on
September 4 where Buck injected him with meth. He went to get
medical help because he thought he was overdosing.
He returned a week later and Buck injected him with “two
dangerously large” doses of meth.
According to investigators, Buck prevented Doe from calling for
help, but Doe escaped the apartment and called 911. He got
treatment, and police searched Buck’s home and found hundreds of
pictures of “men in compromising positions,” according to the LA
LaTisha Nixon, the mother of Gemmel Moore, Buck’s first alleged
victim, has long suspected that Buck was able to elude
prosecution because his victims were poor and black and he is
rich and white. She filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Buck
earlier this year.
“If the dead body of a blond-haired, blue-eyed white man was
found in the home of an older black man, he’d be lucky to even
make it to the police station alive,” Nixon’s attorney said.
Commentator Jasmyne Cannick has been trying to draw attention to
Moore’s death and Buck’s alleged predatory behavior.
“Today is like a celebration for us,” she said at a rally last
“I feel vindicated for all the people who said it was never
going to happen,” Cannick said. “I feel really good for all the
young men he took advantage of because they didn’t feel like
anyone took them seriously, like their lives weren’t important
enough for anyone to really care about.”
“Black gay men’s lives matter. The whole black LGBT community is
going to be celebrating this evening because our lives matter,
and people need to know that. Even if we’re sex workers, even if
we’re on drugs, even if we’re homeless, we’re still part of the
black community, still part of the LGBT community.”
Buck was held in custody overnight. Prosecutors have recommended
bail be set at $4 million.
