The Los Angeles Sherrif’s Office has ruled that the death of a man in the West Hollywood home of Democratic donor Ed Buck was the result of an accidental methamphetamine overdose.
55-year-old Timothy Dean died in Buck’s home in January. His death was curiously similar to another tragic incident just 18 months prior, when Gemmel Moore, another black man, died in Buck’s home of a meth overdose.

According to attorneys for Buck, Dean arrived at Buck’s home already under the influence. “We stand by our position that unfortunately, Mr. Dean ingested drugs at a location other than Mr. Buck’s, and he came over intoxicated, and it’s a tragedy,” attorney Seymour Amster said in a statement.
The statement will likely do little to quell the anger toward Buck, a longtime donor to Democratic candidates like Hillary Clinton. Politicians who have accepted funds from Buck have already begun donating them to charity, and the mother of Gemmel Moore has filed a lawsuit claiming that Buck assaulted, drugged and battered her son. A passage from Moore’s diary allegedly attributes his meth habit to Buck, who gave him his first dose.
Buck maintains his innocence. Police have said they will continue to investigate Moore’s death as the inquiry into Dean’s continues.
OMG!!. This is shocking said no one.
The kind of people who supported the Demoness. No thank you. I don’t understand why the gay community believes we are somehow destined to be all about drugs and self-destructive garbage. Aren’t we allowed to have self respect and dignity?
Go back to the Kremlin, Komrad
Oh really? You mean kind of like Roger Ailes supporting Republicans?
Queerty, not only has this account (CobraPowers) made it clear it is only on here to attack LGBT people and promote Republicans, it continually denigrates LGBT people as in the post above where it is trying to claim all LGBTs are destined to be all about drugs and self destructive garbage. At what point are these obvious troll accounts banned?
Queerty, stop playing the right wing media’s game. The guy owned a company he build up and sold and did many other things, and yet he is only described as a “Democratic Donor”. Really? That’s ridiculous.
You cry a lot on here. Reminds me of a kid whose older brother teases them -“Mom!! He’s doing it again. Make him stop!!! Mom!!! CobraPowers said that mean thing again!! Do something!!! Mom he poked me!!! Mom he’s making faces make it stop!!! *proceeds to cry in corner*
