A black man in his 50s was found dead early Monday at the West Hollywood apartment of Ed Buck, a prominent Democratic donor associated with a different death in his home last year.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has not yet disclosed the deceased person’s name.
An attorney for Buck told the Los Angeles Times that he believes the individual “was an old friend who died of an accidental overdose” of drugs he had used before coming to Buck’s home.
The incident will sound eerily familiar to anyone who followed the investigation into the death of Gemmel Moore, a 26-year-old black escort who died of an accidental methamphetamine overdose in Buck’s home just 18 months ago. The prominent donor, 65, was present then as well.
The similarities between the two deaths are not lost on law enforcement.
