Second Body Found Inside House of Prominent Democratic Donor Ed Buck
By Fox News // January 8, 2019
(FOX NEWS) – A man died early Monday at the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck, his attorney confirmed to Fox News — 17 months after a male escort died in the same apartment.
Attorney Seymour Amster told Fox News the unidentified victim was a “longtime friend” of Buck and said the two had known each other for 25 years. Amster said the victim “reached out for [Buck’s] help” Sunday night and began acting “in a bizarre way” after he arrived at Buck’s apartment.
“As far as we’re concerned, this is an accidental death,” said Amster, who added that police had released the scene and Buck was not under arrest.
Buck, a well-known figure in LGBT political circles, has given more than $500,000 to a range of Democratic groups and candidates — including former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
In July of last year, prosecutors declined to file charges against Buck in the death of Gemmel Moore, a male escort whose body was found in Buck’s apartment in July 2017.
