Police found a dead body at the West Hollywood home of Democratic megadonor Ed Buck — just months after a male escort was also found dead there.
Buck’s attorney reportedly confirmed the death to Fox News.
The attorney, Seymour Amster, told the network that the deceased man was a “longtime friend” of Buck’s who was seeking Buck’s help on Sunday night.
"As far as we're concerned, this is an accidental death," the attorney said.
Police initially agreed the man died of an accidental overdose, however, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office has reportedly re-opened the death investigation after finding journal entries that mentioned Buck and drug use.
“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,” Fox News reported.
The report added:
“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.
According to a coroner's report, Buck's apartment was full of drug paraphernalia, including 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.”
