A West Hollywood man who made prominent donations to the
Democratic Party was charged Tuesday with running a drug house
where two men died of overdoses.
Edward Buck, who was arrested at his home Tuesday, should be
held on $4 million bail because he is a “violent, dangerous
sexual predator” who offered drugs, money and shelter to mainly
addicted and homeless men in exchange for participating in
sexual fetishes, including a fetish that involved administering
dangerous doses of drugs, Los Angeles County prosecutors said in
Buck “has no regard for human life,” the motion said.
In addition to operating a drug house, Buck is charged with
furnishing methamphetamine and with battery causing serious
bodily injury. He was scheduled for arraignment on Wednesday.
Messages to his attorney, Seymour Amster, were not immediately
Buck, 65, has donated tens of thousands of dollars to California
candidates, including Gov. Gavin Newsom, and is well known in
LGBTQ political circles.
Buck came under investigation in January after 55-year-old
Timothy Dean was found dead of an accidental methamphetamine
overdose in his apartment. It was the second such death in two
years, following the July 2017 death of Gemmel Moore, 26.
Both men were black. Buck, who is white, was not charged and
critics later questioned if wealth, race or political ties
influenced the investigation.
The investigation into those deaths continues, county district
attorney’s spokesman Greg Risling said.
Buck’s attorney had said Dean came to Buck’s home under the
influence and didn’t ingest any drugs while there.
In their bail motion, however, prosecutors specifically blamed
Buck’s actions for the two deaths and they alleged he personally
gave a dangerous dose of methamphetamine to a man who survived
an overdose earlier this month.
On Sept. 11, the man returned and Buck injected him with two
more dangerous doses, refused to help him and “thwarted” his
efforts to get help until the man fled the apartment and called
911 from a gas station, prosecutors alleged.
“His deadly behavior has not stopped,” prosecutors contended.
Buck’s “predatory acts and willful disregard for human life must
be stopped before another life is lost,” their motion read.
