A 26-year-old male prostitute was discovered dead at the residence of Ed Buck, a well-known Democratic party donor in late July after a drug overdose.
The incident took place on July 27th just before 7:30 pm at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood residence.
Buck is a high-profile political activist and wealthy donor to the California and Los Angeles County Democratic Party.
The Coroner in Los Angeles County declared Gemmel Moore’s death an “accident” from a meth overdose.
However, Moore’s family things that there was foul play involved in the hours between Gemmel’s arrival at Buck’s residence and his death.
In a phone interview with the WeHo Times, Gemmel Moore’s mother, LaTisha Nixon, indicated that her son had been involved with sex-work for a few years.
“I called one of my son’s friends and was like, ‘who the hell is Edward Buck?’” Nixon said, speaking from her residence in Spring, Texas. “My son’s friend was like, ‘oh my God, that white guy, that wealthy white politician guy.’”
A one-time Republican, Buck started to get involved in politics in Southern California in the early 1990s.
He became a successful businessman, specifically in electronic information services.
Ed Buck soon became a city councilman for West Hollywood and AIDS activist.
During Nixon’s discussion with her son’s friend, a picture of Moore’s life started to emerge, with Buck reportedly playing a role, The Daily Mail reported.
“When he calmed down, he told me that Buck was one of my son’s clients and that Buck was one of his clients as well,” Nixon added. “[Buck] would have my son to go to… Santa Monica Boulevard looking for gay black guys so he could inject them with drugs, see their reaction and take pictures of them.”
Currently, Buck is not a suspect in Moore’s death.
