Ed Buck’s Lawyer Runs Defense After Second Black Escort Found Dead at Buck’s Home: ‘He Was Trying Help Counsel Them’ (VIDEO)
Ed Buck’s lawyer talks to the media
On Monday, the body of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.
As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.
The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence is “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.
Ed Buck’s lawyer defended his client in an interview with the media and said Ed Buck did nothing wrong, he just has a huge heart and was trying to counsel people with drug problems.
“An old time friend of Ed’s came over and–and — was reluctant to have him come over. The individual came over, had already been partying, apparently had already taken some substances,” the lawyer said.
“There are some individuals in our society who have a huge heart–maybe bigger than what they should have and they allow individuals to come over when they probably–some of would not allow them to come over and then things happen there after. Not being involved in their death, trying to help them and counsel them to change their ways but this is what happens,” the lawyer added.

Ed Buck is a gay white man in his 60’s and according Gemmel Moore’s mother, Buck has a fetish for getting young black men high.
“[Buck] would have my son to go out to… Santa Monica Boulevard looking for young gay black guys so he could inject them with drugs, see their reaction and how [they] would react and take pictures of them,” Gemmel Moore’s mother told WeHo Times last summer.
In case you missed it, here are some photos of top Democrat donor Ed Buck “counseling” the young gay escorts who come over to his house:
Ed Buck also shows he has a “huge heart” by donating to all top Democrats– perhaps this is why he has not been arrested yet.
