Prominent Democratic Donor Ed Buck’s Dead Black Body Problem Isn’t Going Away

The Cost of Silence: How A Wealthy LA Democratic Donor Muted The Political Party of “Allies” and “Coalition Building”

Watch as Gemmel Moore’s DEAD body was being taken out of Ed Buck’s home.  
Buck had already invited ANOTHER vulnerable young man over.

Gemmel “Juelz” Moore, 26, will be laid to rest on Saturday, August 19 in South Los Angeles.  On Friday, August 18 at 7 p.m. there will be a candlelight vigil in front of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station.

Moore, who was homeless and worked as a male escort, was found dead in the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck–a 63-year-old wealthy, white, Democratic donor. The cause of death was immediately classified as an accidental meth overdose by the Los Angeles County Coroner but now homicide detectives are reexamining Moore’s death, based on additional information, sheriff’s officials announced.  The additional information includes Moore’s own journal entries documenting his relationship with Ed Buck.

In his journal, Moore wrote, “I honestly don’t know what to do. I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that,” a December entry reads. “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.”

His last entry, dated Dec. 3, 2016 reads: “If it didn’t hurt so bad, I’d kill myself but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now.”

Seymour Amster, the same attorney who represented serial killer Lonnie Franklin also known as the “Grim Sleeper” is now representing Ed Buck.

Amster described Buck’s relationship with Moore as “good friends”, and said Buck is a kindhearted man who reaches out to troubled youth who are often homeless.

I’m going to pull over the car right here for just a moment.

Good friends.  Kindhearted man.  Let’s examine that.

Moore has been dead for 20 days.  20 days.  In that time Ed Buck has never once called the Gemmel’s mother or friends of his “good friend” to offer condolences. Ed Buck has never once called his “good friend’s” mother to explain to her what happened to her son in his last moments of life in his apartment.  Ed Buck, who has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to political campaigns and candidates over the years, hasn’t reached out to see how he could help with Gemmel’s funeral services.  Funeral services which are currently being paid for by a GoFund Me drive.

But his attorney would have us to believe that they are “good friends” and he’s a kindhearted man.

Amster also said that while his client was in the apartment when Moore died, he had absolutely nothing to do with his overdose.

“It is unfortunate that the sheriff’s department is reacting to unsubstantiated allegations,” Amster said. “This is a tragedy, not a crime. He had no involvement in Gemmel Moore’s death. Unfortunately he opened his home to an individual who was troubled.”

“Whatever Moore did, Mr. Buck was not around when he did it. He was in the apartment in the time of his death. We’re not sure where Mr. Moore took whatever he took to cause the overdose.”

Im’ma need to pull the car over again.

So, according to Buck’s attorney he opened his home to an individual who was troubled.  Okay so let’s examine that statement too.

How does Ed Buck, a fairly well off white man living in West Hollywood, seem to know all of these troubled vulnerable young Black gay men?

Below is the screenshot of an ad allegedly posted to Adam4Adam, a gay dating and hookup site, by Buck under the username “bucked” and responded to by one of his victims.

Translation provided by victim who responded to ad

“I can float in the stratocumulus clouds for an eternity,sometimes launching in a pointed way.”
I have an endless supply of drugs and I sometimes use needles.

“I’ve got a huge underwear, sports gear, mirror, cockring, bulge, vac pumps…fetishes.”

“Nothing fuck going on here….my butt, your butt, any butt is unappealing.”
His fetish doesn’t include having intercourse.

“I love verbal, (filthy mouth) , visual ( lots of mirrors). BLACKS +++”

“YOU be in love with your cock, cockslanging, and showing off your cock in my jock.”

“Into masculine slender/skinny men who realize it’s not about an 8 inch cock, it’s you as a 6 foot nigger.”

Here is a photo of Buck in his home.  Notice all of the mirrors as referenced in his ad above.

Below is a sexually explicit video clip taken inside of Ed Buck’s home with Buck and another young man who goes by the name of Damar Love.  Buck was a client of Love’s, who is a part-time escort. In the video you can hear Ed Buck directing Love. Towards the end of the video is a photo of Love with a bag of crystal meth just behind him in clear view.  The photo, Love says, was taken by Buck.

Moore’s mother LaTisha Nixon has been trying to get the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to investigate Ed Buck who she says has a history of violence against her son and is known for his Tuskegee Experiment like fetish where he shoots drugs into young Black men to watch how they react to it. Since Moore’s story broke additional young Black gay men who have been hired by Buck have come forward and corroborated this.

At the apartment where Buck lives, neighbors have confirmed seeing several young black men come and go at all hours of the night.

Since the WeHo Times initially broke the story, young Black men are beginning to come forward and recount their experiences with Buck in his West Hollywood home.

Only a white man can have a dead Black body in his house and explain it away to the police and they say okay and case closed.

What is it going to take for Ed Buck to be arrested and charged?  Justice for Gemmel.
