Another Black man visited the home of Ed Buck, but this man made it out alive.
Edward Bernard Peter Buck, 64, is a prominent American donor to the Democratic Party, who recently made headlines after two Black men were found dead in his West Hollywood home. Police reported Buck’s alleged victims were drugged after medical officials examined their bodies. Reports showed Methamphetamine was the “immediate cause” of death for victim Gemmel Moore, 26, who was found dead in Buck’s apartment on July 27, 2017.
The latest Black man has been identified as 55-year-old Timothy Dean, who was found dead in Buck’s apartment Monday (Jan. 7). Both cases were in the last 18 months.
Now another Black man, Jermaine Gagnon, has come out saying he too was with Buck in the apartment, where the two men were found dead. Gagnon claims Buck paid to have him flown out to Los Angeles from Minnesota and drugged him by dissolving a substance into his Gatorade, before he then injected him with drugs. Buck says the first time they met drugs were not a part of their arrangement, but on the second visit Buck introduced meth.
“He always told me, ‘In my house I’m the only person that can administrate.’ He was the only person who would give the drugs to anybody. He only smoked. He would make a needle to inject himself but he would inject me first. I never saw him inject himself in front of me. These are his drugs, his needles.” Gagnon says he never did meth prior to meeting Buck.
Gagnon says the meth made him extremely aggressive and angry. “It hit me, my body went to tingling, my mouth went to jittery. I got so high that I was enraged, I cussed him out and made a big scene at his apartment and he pretty much put me out,’ he said. “I changed back into my clothes, he paid me $250 and I left.”
Buck’s attorney, Seymore Amster, refused to comment on the accusation but said “We see no reason to respond to unverified accusations from individuals just trying to seek attention,” he said.
