Los Angeles: Dead Man Found in Home of Top Democratic Donor

HeadlineJan 09, 2019

Los Angeles police have found a man’s dead body inside the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck. The deceased man’s identity has not been revealed, but police have said he is black, making him the second black man to be found dead inside Buck’s home. In July 2017, 26-year-old Gemmel Moore was found naked in Buck’s living room after he overdosed. Buck was not charged in Moore’s death, but authorities now say they will review their investigation. Ed Buck has been a vocal supporter of various Democratic politicians and causes for years and donated to the campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
