Two men have died of overdoses in the apartment of LGBTQ activist Ed Buck since 2017, and shocking excerpts from one of the men’s diary is now shedding light on exactly what the Democrat megadonor did to him and other victims in order to achieve sexual gratification.
Gemmel Moore, a black male escort, was found dead in Buck’s West Hollywood apartment on July 27, 2017. Police discovered sex toys, syringes, and crystal meth near where his naked body lie on a mattress, near a TV playing male porn. Buck, who was home at the time, was not prosecuted for his death.
In one diary entry, Moore allegedly wrote (via The Daily Mail):
“I honestly don’t know what to do. I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that. 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…‘My life is at an all-time high right now & I mean that from all ways. I ended up back at Buck house again and got manipulated into slamming again. I even went to the point where I was forced to doing 4 within a 2 day period. This man is crazy and it’s sad. Will I ever get help?”
Apparently it seems that the injection of crystal meth into his victims had become, for Buck, an important part of a bizarre sex ritual.
Moore’s journal was turned over to the New York Times by activist Jasmyne Cannick, who pushed investigators to charge Buck for two years. After Timothy Michael Dean, an adult film actor, died in Buck’s residence wearing rubber rings around his genitals, she issued a warning, “If the Sheriff’s Department and district attorney don’t do their job, a third body’s going to be taken out of Ed Buck’s apartment.”
Buck was one of the Demcrat party’s top Hollywood donors and had deep ties to both failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as well as many others in the DNC’s top brass.

West Hollywood Mayor John Duran commented on Buck’s downward spiral into drugs. “Ed’s story is one I’ve seen happen to many individuals in West Hollywood, gay men who end up making the attachment of sex to meth, and then meth takes over and consumes their lives.”
Fifty civil rights organizations formed a coalition calling for a criminal investigation of Buck and demanding that politicians return the donations he made to their campaigns.
In a joint statement, they said, “Nearly a dozen young men have confirmed Moore’s account and shared personal stories about Buck’s alleged, nefarious practice of injecting Black men with various lethal substances.”
When a 37-year-old man survived overdosing on a meth injection in September of 2019, Los Angeles police charged Buck with battery and maintaining a drug house. He was later charged with additional felonies, including distribution of methamphetamine resulting in death for the overdose of Gemmel Moore.
Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster, claimed his client is a friend to people struggling with addiction and brings them home to help. “Ed has helped hundreds of individuals, but they are reluctant to come forward because they are thankful but don’t want their personal lives exposed,” Amster stated. “These are things they are bringing into this residence that are causing their death.”
In Moore’s final diary entry, he wrote: “If it didn’t hurt so bad, I’d kill myself, but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now.”
Buck has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is currently awaiting trial in 2021.
