WEST HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) – A 55-year-old man who died at the West
Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck overdosed
on methamphetamine and his death was ruled accidental,
authorities said Monday.

Timothy Dean of West Hollywood was found dead early Jan. 7 at
Buck’s apartment in the 1200 block of Laurel Avenue. It was the
second death from an accidental methamphetamine overdose at the
same apartment in less than 18 months and prompted renewed calls
for a criminal prosecution of Buck.

Deputies from the sheriff’s West Hollywood Station responded
about 1:05 a.m. the day of Dean’s death to Buck’s apartment
regarding a person not breathing. The caller performed CPR and
called 911, and paramedics pronounced Dean dead at the scene,
according to the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

Homicide detectives were sent to investigate the death, the
cause of which had been under investigation by the Los Angeles
County coroner’s office.

“The coroner’s office found Timothy Dean died as a result of a
methamphetamine overdose,” according to a sheriff’s department
statement. “His death was ruled accidental.”

The body of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore was found at the same
apartment on July 27, 2017. The coroner’s office ruled Moore’s
death an accidental methamphetamine overdose, to the dismay of
his family, which wanted prosecutors to charge Buck with a crime.

Moore’s mother, LaTisha Nixon, filed a wrongful death lawsuit
last month against both Buck and the Los Angeles County district
attorney’s office.

The lawsuit brought seeks general and punitive damages against
Buck and the DA’s office for wrongful death, sexual battery,
assault, hate violence, civil rights violations and drug dealer
liability. Both Moore and Dean were gay, black men.

“This lawsuit helps to protect a very vulnerable population of
gay black men by exposing details of Buck’s predatory and
racially-discriminatory actions against gay black men,” said
Nixon’s attorney Nana Gymafi in a statement.

Buck was present at the location when both deaths occurred,
according to the sheriff’s department.

“Investigators are continuing to interview individuals who may
have come forward to provide information,” according to the
sheriff’s department. “This investigation is ongoing and there
is no further information available to release at this time.”

Dmitry Gorin, a defense attorney and former deputy district
attorney, told the Los Angeles Times there is a high bar to
prove someone is culpable in a death involving drugs and that
typically, there needs to be a witness who saw the accused
administer or furnish the substance that caused death.

Buck has been a prominent donor to Democratic candidates and
office holders. He has been active in LGBTQ political circles
and once ran for the West Hollywood City Council.

Community activist Jasmyne Cannick, who worked closely with
Moore’s family, has called for Buck’s arrest, prosecution and
conviction.

A coalition of 41 LGBTQ and other groups – including the
National Black Justice Coalition, National LGBTQ Task Force, and
American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California – also
called for further action.

Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster, has denied that Buck had any
involvement in either death.

Amster has said Buck and Moore were good friends, and told The
Times that Buck did not witness Moore injecting drugs the night
he died.

Moore’s mother LaTisha Nixon earlier said she and her son had
been living with her in Texas, but Buck bought him a plane
ticket to return to Los Angeles, which he did the day he died.
According to The Times, Moore had previously been homeless and
worked as an escort.

Nixon has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Buck, and
accused the District Attorney’s Office of failing to prosecute
him because he is white, thus violating Moore’s civil rights.

Ed Buck today pleaded not guilty to federal charges stemming
from the overdose deaths of two men inside his West Hollywood
apartment, with the judge setting a tentative trial date of Nov.
26.

Buck’s plea at the downtown Los Angeles federal courthouse was
followed by an appearance outside by friends and relatives of
Timothy Dean and Gemmel Moore – the men found dead in Buck’s
apartment at 1234 N. Laurel Ave. — who described themselves as
having come together as a family in their struggle to deal with
the deaths and to push for the arrest and prosecution of Buck.
LaTisha Nixon, Moore’s mother, carried his ashes.

In the press conference after Buck’s arraignment, the speakers
praised federal investigators for arresting Buck on the murder
charges and condemned Los Angeles County District Attorney
Jackie Lacey for not more aggressively pursuing the charges
against Buck.

West Hollywood and its gay community – overwhelmingly composed
of white men — also was criticized. Paul Scott, a founder of the
Los Angeles Black LGBT Pride Movement, said that gay black
people didn’t feel accepted in West Hollywood. “We’re certainly
not seen as human in West Hollywood,” he said.

Cory McLean, a friend of Gemmel Moore’s, described what he
called a “dehumanizing of black men … The gay life in West
Hollywood has exacerbated this.”

At the brief court appearance, Buck, 65, who remains in federal
custody, was dressed in off-white prison garb and apparently had
difficulty hearing, telling the magistrate judge, “I’m working
with one hearing aid.”

In addition to the tentative trial date of Nov. 26, the judge
booked a Nov. 4 motions hearing and Nov. 19 status conference.

Buck is named in a five-count indictment that charges him with
alleged narcotics distribution offenses, including providing
methamphetamine to Moore and Dean, each of whom died after being
injected with the drug at Buck’s apartment at North Laurel
Avenue apartment. Each of the charges alleging the distribution
of narcotics resulting in death carries a mandatory minimum of
20 years in federal prison and a maximum penalty of life without
parole upon conviction.

The indictment alleges that Buck provided methamphetamine to
Moore, who was 26 years old when he overdosed on the drug and
died on July 27, 2017, and Timothy Dean, 55, who suffered a
fatal overdose in Buck’s apartment on Jan. 7. Buck also faces
three counts of distributing methamphetamine to men in May 2018,
December 2018 and last month.

The indictment alleges that Buck “engaged in a pattern of
soliciting men to consume drugs that Buck provided and perform
sexual acts at Buck’s apartment,” which is a practice described
as “party and play.” Buck allegedly solicited victims on social
media platforms, including the gay sex hookup site
Adam4Adam.com, and used a recruiter to scout and proposition men.

Once the men were at his apartment, Buck prepared syringes
containing methamphetamine, sometimes personally injecting the
victims with or without their consent, according to the
indictment. Buck also allegedly injected victims with more
narcotics than they expected and sometimes injected victims
while they were unconscious.

“Buck exerted power over his victims, often targeting vulnerable
individuals who were destitute, homeless, and/or struggled with
drug addiction, in order to exploit the relative wealth and
power imbalance between them,” the indictment alleges.

One of Buck’s attorneys, Seymour Amster, has denied that his
client — who allegedly was present when the fatal overdoses
occurred in his apartment — had any involvement in either death.
Amster was not present at today’s arraignment, where Buck was
represented by Claire Simonich of the federal Public Defenders
Office. Simonich was assigned to Buck’s case on Sept. 19, which
has led to questions as to whether Buck cannot afford to retain
Amster, a private attorney who has represented him since Moore’s
death in July 2017. WEHOville was unable to reach Simonich and
Amster declined to comment.

Buck also faces separate charges, including operating a drug
house, that were filed last month by the Los Angeles County
District Attorney’s Office. He is currently being held in
federal custody without bond, and the federal case is proceeding
first.

Buck, a former Republican who first made headlines in the 1980s
when he spearheaded a recall drive against Arizona Gov. Evan
Mecham, has been a frequent donor to Democratic candidates and
officeholders, including four of West Hollywood’s City Council
members. He also is known for having been a force in the initial
election in 2011 of Mayor John D’Amico to the City Council, with
D’Amico pledging to push through the ban on the retail sale of
fur in WeHo that Buck had lobbied for. Buck also has been active
in LGBTQ political circles and once ran for the West Hollywood
City Council.
