WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (FOX 11) - Democratic donor Ed Buck told a FOX 11 crew to “get a life” and that he doesn’t want to talk when confronted at his West Hollywood apartment Wednesday evening as he remains under investigation for the deaths of two gay black men inside of his residence.
In July 2017, Gemmel Moore was found dead inside of Buck’s apartment off of Laurel Ave. His death was ruled an accidental meth overdose, and he had written in his journal that Buck had given him his first injection of crystal meth.
Prosecutors declined to press charges against Buck in relation to Moore’s death.
On January 7th, Timothy Dean also died inside of Buck’s apartment. His official cause of death has not been released.
Days after Dean’s death, black lives matter activists gathered in front of Buck’s apartment to call for his prosecution.
Wednesday evening, a resident of Buck’s building invited FOX 11 inside the property, where we confronted him.
Buck declined to answer any questions, said he didn’t want to talk and told the FOX 11 crew to “get a job, get a life.”
When pressed with questions about two men being found dead inside his apartment, Buck appeared to respond “Yeah, and I’m gonna die in here soon too.”
Dean and Moore’s deaths are both still under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Departments Homicide Bureau, and Buck has not been charged.
His attorney, Seymour Amster, has long maintained that Buck has done nothing wrong.
Amster declined an interview with FOX 11 on Wednesday.
