Family and friends of a male escort found dead in the West Hollywood home of a high-powered Democratic Party donor last year continue to press for answersin a case that has eluded the national media spotlight on incidents of sexual misconduct and racial injustice.
Gemmel Moore, 26, was discovered by police on July 27 inside the apartment of Ed Buck, 63. 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.
The Los Angeles County Coroners office initially ruled the death an accidental methamphetamine overdose. But the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Office Homicide Bureau on Aug. 14 announced they would investigate if there is any criminal culpability, after Moores family and friends disputed the initial finding.
Investigators told Fox News they would like to have the inquiry wrapped up in the near futurebut have had trouble interviewing certain witnesses.
We should have all the information, so we can make a good evaluation of everything that transpired to see if theres any criminal culpability, Lt. Joe Mendoza, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Office homicide bureau, told Fox News in a recent telephone interview.
Detectives have already interviewed numerous witnesses who have information to share about their interactions with Buck, according to Mendoza. But investigators are trying to schedule additional interviews with people who may have useful information.

Moores final journal entry, dated December 3, 2016, reads: If it didnt hurt so bad, Id kill myself, but Ill let Ed Buck do it for now.
I read this story earlier today. First I had heard of it. Hmmm...
Homosexuals are involved in some sick crap.
The deceased prostitute’s family can smell the potential money (BIG Money!) over three states away from the Dem Donor’s front door.
I would be guessing Adam S.
Yes, not paying for sex, but paying for them to take illegal drugs...
To paraphrase Edwin Edwards, he was not caught in bed with a live boy, or dead girl - but a dead boy.
I worked with Ed Buck on then Repub Gov Ev Mecham’s recall fight in the late ‘80s in AZ. (I was young and a dumb Dem then).
He posed as a Republican to appear to be non-partisan and just a good citizen doing his duty by recalling the odious gov. Buck was a mercurial person in those days. Always had money, had a home up the side of Camelback Mountain.
...maybe to addict them so that they would do his bidding???
Prostitute or not, gay or not, if Buck was pushing hard drugs that led to addicting people and to at least one death, he is scum, a criminal and should be prosecuted. However, Buck is a major Dem donor in the bluest of states and, as a gay, he is a protected Dem class. So I don’t expect any justice in this case.
Wow, are you really trying to defend the scumbag Buck here? Did you read the article?
No. Not trying to defend anyone.
No one looks good in this affair.
