The second man found dead in the span of two years in political activist and prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck’s West Hollywood apartment died of a methamphetamine overdose, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said Monday.
Timothy Dean’s death Jan. 7 was ruled accidental by the coroner’s office, the sheriff’s department said.
The article goes on to state the following:
Dean, 55, was found dead in Buck’s apartment after Gemmel Moore, 26, died there in July 2017. Moore’s death was also ruled as an accidental overdose of crystal methamphetamine.
Police did not charge Buck with any crime, but last month, Moore’s mother, LaTisha Nixon, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Buck, Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey, the assistant district attorney and others.
Nixon said she had found Moore’s personal journal in which Moore wrote that Buck had made him hooked on crystal meth by injecting him with the dangerous drug.
If another young, Black gay man overdoses or worse dies at Democratic donor Ed Buck’s apartment it’s going to be the fault of the sheriff’s dept and L.A. District Atty for not stopping him when they had the opportunity to. #GemmelMoore #Justice4Gemmel pic.twitter.com/jlbS2KTvNe
