Despite ample evidence of drug activity and dangerous behavior
at Buck’s West Hollywood apartment, local authorities did not
lob criminal charges at him until last week
By JAMES QUEALLY, RICHARD WINTON, HAILEY BRANSON-POTTS
SEP. 30, 2019 6:26 AM
After a man was found dead inside the West Hollywood home of
Democratic donor Ed Buck in 2017, authorities quickly had reason
to believe the case was more complex than a drug overdose.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives found nearly two grams
of methamphetamine, syringes and drug paraphernalia throughout
the residence. The dead man, Gemmel Moore, had written diary
entries in which he said Buck got him addicted to meth.

In the weeks that followed, as activists from the black and
LGBTQ communities contended that Buck was a dangerous predator,
two more men came forward and told investigators Buck had pumped
methamphetamine into their bodies against their will, court
records show. A West Hollywood councilwoman said she, too, tried
to urge the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office to
take the stories seriously.

But Buck was not arrested until this month, when local
prosecutors charged him with operating a drug den. Two days
later, federal prosecutors accused Buck of providing the drugs
that led to Moore’s overdose, charging him in connection with
Moore’s death more than a year after the district attorney’s
offic declined to do so.

The new revelations have added to questions about why it took so
long to build a case against Buck. Community activists and
Moore’s family have been particularly critical of Los Angeles
County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey for not prosecuting Buck in the
wake of the first death and have questioned the efforts of
sheriff’s investigators.

In the time between Moore’s death and Buck’s arrest, a second
man died of a drug overdose in his apartment, and authorities
say a third nearly died of an overdose before escaping to a gas
station and calling 911.

At least eight other men alleged to authorities that Buck
provided them with drugs in exchange for participating in his
drug-fueled sexual fetishes. Several claimed Buck injected them
while they were sleeping, and two described incidents that
amounted to allegations of sexual misconduct.

In an email, district attorney’s office spokesman Greg Risling
said the agency “is legally and ethically required and committed
to only bring charges that have sufficient, admissible evidence
to convince an objective jury of a defendant’s guilt beyond a
reasonable doubt.”

He declined a Times request for an interview and did not respond
to a list of questions about the office’s decision not to charge
Buck with lesser drug crimes or whether it had evaluated the
sexual misconduct allegations.

Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster, declined to discuss the case.
The sheriff’s department also declined to comment.

Evidentiary issues appear to have plagued the original case
against Buck. In a document filed when the district attorney’s
declined to file charges in 2018, prosecutors listed
insufficient evidence and an “inadmissible search and seizure”
among the reasons not to prosecute Buck. Law enforcement leaders
have never explained what, if any, illegal conduct was committed
during the initial search of Buck’s home.

Lacey has said hearsay rules would have prevented prosecutors
from using Moore’s journal against Buck. Legal experts suggested
the same might have barred the testimony of his mother, LaTisha
Nixon, who said Moore claimed Buck forced him to use meth.

Court records suggest that local prosecutors who declined to
charge Buck in 2018 reviewed the same principal evidence that
federal prosecutors did this year, though Risling said the
charge connected to Moore’s death that was levied by federal
prosecutors does not exist under California law.

While that is true, experts said Lacey’s office could have
considered an involuntary manslaughter charge under state law.
The likely explanation is that the federal charge carries a much
stiffer penalty, said Laurie Levenson, a Loyola law school
professor and former federal prosecutor who reviewed the
affidavit filed in support of federal charges.

Buck would have faced a maximum of four years in prison if
convicted of involuntary manslaughter in state court. He would
serve a minimum of 20 years in prison if convicted of the
federal charge.

Levenson said that the district attorney’s office probably could
have charged Buck with a drug offense much sooner than it did.

“After two deaths … I don’t think there’s any doubt that there
was probably a time before this week for them to go forward on
these charges,” she said.

Levenson also said the additional witnesses probably were
critical to the decision to charge Buck. Establishing a pattern
of dangerous behavior would go a long way to short-circuiting
his defense, she said.

“The prosecutors were anticipating the defense in Moore’s case
to be ‘It was an accident.’ You don’t have an accident 10 times,
so the pattern is key,” Levenson said. “Even though the facts
haven’t changed, how you perceive them does.”

Federal prosecutors became involved in the case in June, after
it was referred to their attention by a sheriff’s deputy working
on a federal drug task force, said Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for
the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles. The federal case is
expected to proceed to trial first.

While state and federal agencies said they collaborated on the
case, law enforcement sources previously told The Times that
there was a debate over which jurisdiction to charge Buck in.
One source described the situation as a “fight.”

It is unclear why the district attorney’s office did not act on
the drug-related accusations described in the federal complaint,
though the court documents do not list specific dates and times
of those incidents, meaning they could have been beyond a
statute of limitations or difficult to corroborate.

The charges brought by the district attorney’s office this month
are focused on a single victim, identified only as “Joe Doe.”
The man, who spoke to The Times last week, said he had been
homeless until he moved into Buck’s residence in late July.

According to the federal complaint, he lived with Buck for
nearly five weeks, using drugs or having sex almost daily. After
fleeing from Buck earlier this month, the man landed back on the
street. The man declined to discuss his relationship with Buck.

Activists and attorneys involved in the case said the sheer
volume of allegations in the federal complaint suggest Buck
should have been arrested earlier.

“There were numerous Joe Does, and over two years, our team
worked together to bring seven or eight Joe Does to the county.
The county interviewed them,” said Hussain Turk, an attorney
representing Nixon. “During these interviews, they each told
their stories about how they were forced to ingest or forcibly
injected with crystal methamphetamine at lethal doses, sometimes
while they were passed out, not even conscious.”

West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tem Lindsey Horvath said she tried to
encourage the district attorney to allow potential witnesses to
speak with immunity from prosecution from other potential
crimes, such as drug use or prostitution, in the wake of Moore’s
death, but her calls to Lacey’s office were not returned.
Horvath said she was able to speak to Lacey only after a second
man, 55-year-old Timothy Dean, died in Buck’s apartment in
January.

Attorney Nana Gyamfi, who represents some of the witnesses, said
investigators expressed doubt about the men’s stories because
they were sex workers.

“It was like they kept trying to disprove their own case,” she
said.

Risling said “witness credibility” was among the issues that
weighed on prosecutors when they declined to charge Buck in
2018, but he did not elaborate.

Nixon has repeatedly said authorities seemed uninterested in her
son’s case, rarely contacting her during the investigation into
his death. Nixon said she received one phone call from a
sheriff’s detective last year — to tell her about the decision
not to charge Buck.

She heard from county officials at least once more: when the
coroner’s office sent her a bill for removing her son’s body
from Buck’s home.

“I was going to pay it at first, but I thought about it and I
said, why would I pay for someone murdering my son?” she asked.

Under California law, coroner’s offices can charge fees for the
“transportation and storage of decedents.” Sarah Ardalani, a
spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, said
the agency makes exceptions in the case of homicides, the deaths
of military veterans and victims under 14, or if the family
requests a fee waiver because of financial hardship. Moore’s
death had been ruled accidental at the time, and Nixon did not
apply for a fee waiver, Ardalani said.

Some have suggested that Buck’s status as a wealthy Democratic
donor may have insulated him from prosecution at first. Buck,
who first gained prominence as a registered Republican in
Arizona, had contributed more than $500,000 to progressive
causes in the last decade and supported candidates for the West
Hollywood City Council, Los Angeles Unified School District
board and the reelection campaign of Mayor Eric Garcetti.

But his donations to the campaigns of the law enforcement
leaders tasked with pursuing him were small. Records show Buck
donated $100 to Lacey in 2012. He never donated to the campaigns
of former Sheriff Jim McDonnell or Sheriff Alex Villanueva,
county records show.

Levenson said there were also other hurdles to charging Buck
with Moore’s death.

“To be fair to Lacey’s people, there are some interesting
causation issues, at least with the Moore case,” she said. “How
were they going to prove it was Buck’s meth? How were they going
to prove that Buck forced Moore to do this? Those are all
legitimate questions.”

It remains unclear if Buck could face additional charges. Lacey
has said he remains a “suspect” in Moore’s and Dean’s deaths.

Nixon said she is frustrated that it took a two-year saga to
charge Buck but hopes federal authorities can finally succeed
where others failed.

“I think they initially didn’t care. Think about it,” she said.
“The black, gay community, a lot of people don’t care about
them. I honestly think that’s why it took them so long.” Nixon
said.

Times researcher Maloy Moore contributed to this report.

A top political donor was arrested for injecting vulnerable
black men with crystal meth to fulfill his sexual fetishes,
authorities say. Ed Buck, 65, was taken into police custody on
Tuesday in California after a third man suffered an overdose
inside his West Hollywood home last week.

Two previous visitors to his home ended up dead. Buck is a well-
known local LGBTQ and animal rights activist who donated
thousands to local Democrats, as well as Barack Obama and
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns. He caught the police’s
attention after two men, Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55,
died of methamphetamine overdose in Buck’s home.

The third victim, who has not been named, survived an overdose
at the home on September 11. Prosecutors said: ‘From his home,
in a position of power, Buck manipulates his victims into
participating in his sexual fetishes.’

‘These fetishes include supplying and personally administering
dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims,’
prosecutors continued, according to The New York Times. In
numerous searches of his home, authorities reportedly found
needles, pipes, drugs, and sex toys – as well as hundreds of
photographs of young men in ‘compromising positions.’

Gemmel Moore, a gay escort, wrote about Buck’s manipulative drug-
centered sexual fantasies in a journal that family members
posted on the website Justice 4 Gemmel. Moore, who died in July
2017, reportedly wrote: ‘I honestly don’t know what to do. I’ve
become addicted to drugs and the worst ones 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 to the
pain and fetish/fantasy.’ This is absolutely heartbreaking.

This tragic death could have been avoided had the sherrif's
department and the district attorney's office prosecuted Ed Buck
in the 2017 death of Gemmel Moore.

Now another mother will have to learn that her son is dead at
the hands of Ed Buck. pic.twitter.com/Aq3gAtiCZ3— Jasmyne
Cannick (@Jasmyne) January 7, 2019 The journal entry continues:
‘My life is at an alltime (sic) high right now & I mean that
from all ways. I ended up back at Buck (sic) house again and got
munipulated (sic) into slamming again.’

‘I even went to the point where I was forced to doing 4 within a
2day period. This man is crazy and its (sic) sad. Will I ever
get help.’

‘Slamming’ reportedly refers to the injection of methadone, GHB,
or crystal meth directly into a user’s veins. According to KTLA,
Dean died on January 7, 2019 of an overdose. His autopsy report
showed that he was dead for 15 minutes before anyone called 911.

Buck has been charged with three counts of battery causeing
serious injury, administering methamphetamine,and maintaining a
drug house, according to police. He faces up to five years and
eight months in prison and is due back in court on Wednesday as
prosecutors recommend a $4 million bond.

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Not long ago, Ed Buck was rubbing elbows
with some of the Democratic party’s biggest stars – donating
tens of thousands of dollars to various candidates and causes.

But now, Buck is under fire from community activists after a
second gay black man – identified as 55-year-old Timothy Dean –
died in his home in January. People gathered twice last month,
chanting outside Buck’s West Hollywood apartment building.

Leticia Nixon – the mother of Gemmel Moore, who died at Buck’s
apartment in July of 2017 of a drug overdose – spoke to the
crowd.

“We shouldn’t even be here. There shouldn’t be a second victim,”
she said.

Before the two deaths at his home, Buck was a well-known
activist. Originally from Arizona, he reportedly made around $1
million selling a courier company and moved to West Hollywood in
the early 90s.

He’s often referred to as a wealthy donor. CBSLA’s Tom Wait
found campaign finance records for federal, state and local
donations.

Buck’s biggest political investment was for more than $300,000
to his political action committee called Animal PAC. The
organization says it was “formed to represent animal welfare
interests throughout California.”

Buck was a well-known animal rights activist. But he has also
donated thousands of dollars to various politicians. Many of the
donations were made years before the deaths at his home. In many
cases, the money was returned to Buck or donated to charities
after Moore’s death.

Friends React To 2nd Death In Democratic Donor’s Apartment

Records dating back to 2009 showed Los Angeles Mayor Eric
Garcetti was one of Buck’s high-profile recipients, receiving
$1,400 in 2016. That money was returned about a month after
Moore died.

Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey received $100
from Buck in 2012. Her campaign claims that money was given back
in February of 2018.

He gave former California state Senate leader Kevin De Leon
$18,700 over several campaigns. A former staffer says most of
that money was donated in January of 2018 to a nonprofit that
helps domestic violence survivors.

Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu took in $19,400 in state and
federal donations from Buck. Lieu’s campaign says after the
second death at Buck’s home, they donated the contributions they
received to various charities.

Buck gave Adam Schiff, now chairman of the House Permanent
Select Committee on Intelligence, $2,700 in 2016. The campaign
says the money went to the nonprofit Trevor Project.

West Hollywood Mayor John Duran received $12,500 from Buck in
various campaigns in 2012 to 2016. Without offering specifics,
he said most of the money was spent and some was donated to
charity.

“Every candidate and politician sort of has to find their own
way,” said California State University Northridge Professor
Lawrence Becker.

Becker says it’s up to the candidates whether or not to return
the money. Buck has broken no laws and the donations are
perfectly legal.

“In a case where it’s a legal donation – and it just kind of
looks bad or seems unethical or something – no, there’s no
roadmap, but the best roadmap I would say is good judgement. It
starts to become a lot more murky the further back in time you
go,” he said.

Those donations are just a few of the many thousands of dollars
Buck has dolled out over the years.

starts to become a lot more murky the further back in time you
go,” he said.

Those donations are just a few of the many thousands of dollars
Buck has dolled out over the years.

A top political donor was arrested for injecting vulnerable
black men with crystal meth to fulfill his sexual fetishes,
authorities say. Ed Buck, 65, was taken into police custody on
Tuesday in California after a third man suffered an overdose
inside his West Hollywood home last week.

Two previous visitors to his home ended up dead. Buck is a well-
known local LGBTQ and animal rights activist who donated
thousands to local Democrats, as well as Barack Obama and
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns. He caught the police’s
attention after two men, Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55,
died of methamphetamine overdose in Buck’s home.

The third victim, who has not been named, survived an overdose
at the home on September 11. Prosecutors said: ‘From his home,
in a position of power, Buck manipulates his victims into
participating in his sexual fetishes.’

‘These fetishes include supplying and personally administering
dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims,’
prosecutors continued, according to The New York Times. In
numerous searches of his home, authorities reportedly found
needles, pipes, drugs, and sex toys – as well as hundreds of
photographs of young men in ‘compromising positions.’

Gemmel Moore, a gay escort, wrote about Buck’s manipulative drug-
centered sexual fantasies in a journal that family members
posted on the website Justice 4 Gemmel. Moore, who died in July
2017, reportedly wrote: ‘I honestly don’t know what to do. I’ve
become addicted to drugs and the worst ones 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 to the
pain and fetish/fantasy.’ This is absolutely heartbreaking.

This tragic death could have been avoided had the sherrif's
department and the district attorney's office prosecuted Ed Buck
in the 2017 death of Gemmel Moore.

‘My life is at an alltime (sic) high right now & I mean that
from all ways. I ended up back at Buck (sic) house again and got
munipulated (sic) into slamming again.’

‘I even went to the point where I was forced to doing 4 within a
2day period. This man is crazy and its (sic) sad. Will I ever
get help.’

‘Slamming’ reportedly refers to the injection of methadone, GHB,
or crystal meth directly into a user’s veins. According to KTLA,
Dean died on January 7, 2019 of an overdose. His autopsy report
showed that he was dead for 15 minutes before anyone called 911.

Buck has been charged with three counts of battery causeing
serious injury, administering methamphetamine,and maintaining a
drug house, according to police. He faces up to five years and
eight months in prison and is due back in court on Wednesday as
prosecutors recommend a $4 million bond.
