On July 27, 2017, a Black gay man named Gemmel Moore turned up dead in the home of a big Democrat donor Ed Buck. No suspects were arrested in his drug overdose death.
The 26-year-old Moore was found dead from a drug overdose in the bathroom of a West Hollywood, Calif., apartment belonging to Ed Buck, 62 at the time. Moore, a male escort, was young, Black and poor. Buck is White, wealthy, powerful and a big Democrat donor who has given wads of cash to Hillary Clinton, Jerry Brown, Barack Obama, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
A BAD DUDE
Buck’s allegedly known as a bad dude in the LGBT community who demands male prostitutes do drugs with him before sex. Buck likes young Black men but “only after injecting them with drugs.” Many have backed up that claim.
According to a coroner’s report, Buck’s apartment was full of drug paraphernalia, including 24 syringes containing brown residue, five glass pipes with white residue and burn marks, a plastic straw with possible white residue, clear plastic bags with white powdery residue and a clear plastic bag containing a piece of crystal-like substance.
Moore’s death initially was ruled an accidental methamphetamine overdose, but the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office re-opened the investigation after writings in Moore’s journal implicated Buck in his drug use.
In a December 2016 entry, Moore wrote: “I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that. Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth it was very painful, but after all the troubles, I became addicted…”
In his final entry, on Dec. 3, 2016, Moore wrote: “If it didn’t hurt so bad, I’d kill myself, but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now.”

A SECOND BODY
The story doesn’t end there. A second body has turned up in Buck’s home. This time, protesters are demanding an arrest and call Buck “a danger to our community (LGBT)”.
Attorney Seymour Amster, Buck’s attorney, confirmed the most recent death to Fox News and said the unidentified victim was a “longtime friend” who had known Buck for 25 years. Amster said the victim “reached out for [Buck’s] help” Sunday night and began acting “in a bizarre way” after he arrived at Buck’s apartment.
“As far as we’re concerned, this is an accidental death,” said Amster, who added police had released the scene and Buck was not under arrest.
