These days, the words “Democratic donor, “male prostitute,” and “death” in the same sentence is a late night joke waiting to happen. Put that death in West Hollywood, and, well, justice may never see the light of day.
That is what the family of Gemmel Moore fears. He was a male prostitute, and he was found dead in the home of Ed Buck, a Democratic donor in West Hollywood. And, no, the case is not solved.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office initially ruled the death an accidental methamphetamine overdose. But the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Bureau on Aug. 14 announced they would investigate if there is any criminal culpability, after Moore’s family and friends disputed the initial finding….
According to the July 31 coroner’s report, Buck’s apartment was riddled with drug paraphernalia. Among the items found were 24 syringes containing brown residue, five glass pipes with white residue and burn marks, a plastic straw with possible white residue, clear plastic bags with white powdery residue and a clear plastic bag containing a piece of crystal-like substance.
The report also states coroner’s investigators spoke with a woman who said Moore told her someone whose name is redacted tied him up “over a year ago” and “held him against his will at the residence in West Hollywood.”
Which may be why there is doubt that the official story is really what happened. It most likely is not.
Ed Buck’s name has surfaced more than once in relation to Democrats.
Buck is a well-known Democratic contributor, and has given more than $500,000 to an array of Democrats including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey and a variety of state and local organizations in California.
It may simply be coincidental since Buck maintains his innocence, but the Democrats seem to be hanging out with a lot of people who end up being known for drugs and perverted sex not to mention the tendency of so many individuals ending up dead.
The true story behind this incident may never be known, but it is one more mystery to add to the strange happenings in the Los Angeles area.
