IV drug user

A Saks Fifth Avenue employee has been identified as the man found dead in the upscale apartment of Democratic mega-donor Ed Buck. The LA County Coroner's Office identified the man as 55-year-old Timothy Dean of West Hollywood.

First responders found Dean unresponsive in Buck's apartment around 1 a.m. Monday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Dean was an employee at Saks Fifth Avenue. He is the second man to be found dead inside Buck's apartment in the last 17 months.

Buck's attorney, Seymour Amster, said Dean was already high on drugs when he arrived at Buck's apartment. But a neighbor who was walking her dog just before midnight on Sunday said she observed Dean at Buck's door buzzing the intercom to gain access.

She said Dean did not appear to be under the influence of drugs. He acted normally. He was not staggering or stumbling around.

Protesters held a rally outside Buck's apartment the day Dean's body was found.

Organizer and activist Jasmyne Cannick said, “Arrest Ed Buck, prosecute Ed Buck, and then a jury needs to convict Ed Buck. This man has had two dead bodies in his house, and he is still in his house."

In July 2018, Cannick tweeted: "If another young, Black gay man overdoses or worse dies at Democratic donor Ed Buck’s apartment it’s going to be the fault of the sheriff’s dept and L.A. District [Attorney] for not stopping him when they had the opportunity to."

Buck is an openly ghey 65-year-old man who is a well-connected liberal donor. Buck has donated over $1 million to Democratic politicians, including Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.

Los Angeles County police are investigating Dean's death.

Gemmel Moore, 26, died from a methamphetamine overdose in Buck's apartment in July 2017. Investigators found the apartment littered with sex toys and drug paraphernalia. Additionally, bags and syringes with drug residue were recovered from the apartment.

Moore's mother, LaTisha Nixon, said Moore was a sex worker. She accused Buck of injecting her son with the drug and she believes Buck got a thrill from giving Black males intravenous injections and watching their reactions.

Moore kept a diary in which he detailed Buck injecting him with drugs.

A transgender person who spent time with Buck in his apartment recently says he is lucky to be alive.

The person told a reporter that Buck injected him with a drug. He took photos of Buck standing over him as the drug's effects began to wear off. He also took photos of drug paraphernalia and sex toys in Buck's apartment.

    ok so here is the truth.. drugs metabolize throughout the system at a certain rate. IF the toxicologist is not paid off it the report will show the approximate time the drugs were in the body. If it is within the timeframe of contact with this dude..its time to get them shackles for his azz..

  • Meme

    Well i read a very interesting article in the daily mail said a young man named Jermaine Gagnon went to bucks house, and buck had a particular penchant for injecting young black men with meth and watching their reaction (after he had drugged their Gatorade). He had a box full of all sorts of sx objects and drugs

  • WhoKnew

    This dude sounds like a perv and a predator of gay men hooked on drugs.

    But you mentioned something interesting that I asked about on this site a couple of weeks ago and that was can a toxicologist be paid off. I'm thinking whenever the toxicology report on Kim Porter is complete that it will either be sealed or won't reveal truthfully what was in her system. I just don't believe it was the flu. I hope I'm wrong though.

    Sounds like Sodom and Gomorrah.

    Okay and what---So what's going to happen now? If this were a Black host and two young Caucasian men found it would be World War III.
    This man has a sick ass fetish. I don't know what it is, but definitely a fetish and a deadly one at that.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    This is a sad situation all the way around. This man is a serial killer right in our face and unfortunately he will continue to lure these drug addicts and prostitutes to his home and to their deaths if he is NOT stopped.

  • justlooking

    Everything is true, but the report will not say if indeed gave him the drugs. Which we Know he did.

  • Chicagowise

    The toxicology report will also detect the presence of longterm or prior drug use.

  • hottlanta

    Jeffrey dahmer was a sexual predator. He would lure men 2 his home to sex em kill em n eat em. I remember a gay Asian guy got away n was in the streets naked n asked for help n the cops said it was just gay people having a fight.

  • Chicagowise

    What if the Saks employee isn't a drug addict. What if he was lured there, incompacitated, and then injected with drugs.

  • Chicagowise

    ...and they took him back to Dahmer and Dahmer killed him. I cant remember the dumb officer's name, but when I had a blog, I tracked him down and asked him to explain why he did what he did. He did not respond. He blocked me instead.

  • HotInCleveland

    He threw away that whole 30% and sometimes 40% discount for some drugs?????

    Never thought of that. Something to think about. An avenue to explore maybe.

    Why is this man still walking the streets???? Why is he not in jail or under investigation??? IDGAF if he donated to Jesus himself.......all that matters is that black men are being murdered in his residence....and he seems to be the cause of it!! Why has he not been arrested for the drugs found after the first victim???? See if he was a black man with white boys dying in his place...they would have locked him up a long time ago.....THIS IS AMERICA.

  • Renee26

    And what does his place of employment have to do with anything??

  • Rainbowbelow

    I think it was reported somewhere that he would lace their drink and inject them with more drugs while he wears his long john underwear.

  • sunni_daze

    I think because another article on another sites called the victim a male prostitute. The same thing they labeled the last young man who died in house in 2017

  • Ni Ni

    Aww ok... Glad they cleared that up

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm just surprised that any gay dude would even be going to this guy's house, since his past is well known by now.

    He must be donating to the police and district attorney because his azz should be in prison right now.

  • Chicagowise

    I think I told this story before. When I was 18, I met a guy in a neighborhood park. We talked for a while and he invited me to his house for Easter dinner. I can barely remember his face, but I recall that he seemed really lonely.

    After dinner, I became extremely sleepy and went to his room and fell asleep. I think I slept for an hour. When I woke up, there didn't seem to be anything amiss. I didn't feel drugged or groggy.

    He was sitting in the livingroom watching TV. We talked for a while, but his demeanor was a tad less friendly. I thought he was disappointed because I fell asleep, but he was the one who insisted I take a nap. Ultimately, we exchanged numbers and he drove me back to the park. I never called him and he never called me.

    This was not my proudest moment. I was young and stupid. It could have ended badly. Truthfully, that wasn't the last stupid thing I did.

  • Bossy704

    These men are not drug addicts. That is why they are dying. Addicts would have a tolerance and be able to gauge how much they should shoot. These men are inexperienced. Ed gets off on watching them die. These men are there to get paid.

    Naw transjenner got the message from Herbert Hoover that putting on a dress is good for white men.

  • Peace

    This serial killer has killed before. He may even have an accomplice. The nutty lawyer out saying black men come to Ed Buck house to die. When police found the first dead body all the evidence should have called for further investigation since other men came forward with proof he drugged them. He has cleaned the streets of Hollywood of gay hustlers. That’s just my opinion. The sheriff and District Attorney could have prevented this murder had Ed Buck been arrested and sentenced to life in prison for the first dead body they fooled out his house. Just sickening law enforcement could be so racist and careless

    he may have done something to you or maybe not. as a woman, i just done done some stupid shyt. i went to this officer's apartment at lunch because he lived above the park where i ate sometimes and we were kinda acquaintances. we were just talking and it was a nice building so i wanted to check out his place. he wanted to eat my cooch for lunch. i was like bye fool but he barely wanted to let me go.

  • Chicagowise

    Dahmer was a super predator. He spent years perfecting his craft. Before he was arrested, I ran into him in a north side Chicago bar on Clark Street. A friend noticed that Dahmer was looking at me and tried to encourage me to approach him, but I'm not in to white guys.

    In person, there was nothing threatening about his demeanor. He looked like John Boy Walton in tinted glasses. The only thing that creeped me out was his fixed gaze. He was looking at me like he was in a trance.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He didn't care and was probably a racist and homophobe since the kid was Asian.

    Once, I met a security guard. He was watching the property of a south side hospital. I was walking by and he struck up a conversation. He got my attention because he looked like Ice Cube!

    After about a week of chatting on the street, he convinced me to sit in his car and talk. Somehow, he flipped the conversation to sex. He started fishing, trying to figure me out. When I made it clear I wasn't going to get down with him, he went off! I thought I was going to have to hurt him.

    A lot gay men are in to just hooking up. If you find someone who actually wants a relationship, you're lucky.

    A few months ago, I met an Indian physician. He's 51. He said he was looking for something serious. Sadly, every time I spoke with him, he went on and on about how great he is! Then, he starts telling me about all the people who want to sleep with him. During our last conversation, I asked him if he ever heard the song Gloria by Laura Branigan. He must have got the message, because he never called again.

    Ok that is not what I have observed at least among white guys.

    Most of the white guys I know are interested in live-in situations even if it's an open relationship and I have also noticed that white people trust each other implicitly and tell each other everything about
    themselves the first time they meet while most black people the opposite with each other.

    My so-called love life is quite bizarre because the only men who seem to be attracted (obsessed) to me are Europeans.

    I had this one guy from Switzerland kinda obsessed with me. He visited me three times once when I lived in Alabama and twice while I was living in Florida. Thankfully he finally married his black boyfriend from the island and he actually saw me while I was on Skype and showed them in bed together (they were fully clothed).

    I guess he thought I was jealous but I was relieved because he was somewhat of a racist. He told me that he didn't like the immigrants being in Switzerland and that if I visited him they would I was a drug dealer because I am black.

    Right now I have this guy from the Netherlands that I have known for about five years sending me threatening messages on another website .

    Dude kept bugging me about visiting him. I was like I can't pull $1000 out of my butt to fly over and see you.

    Just the other day this German hit me up on another website and we exchanged pics on Whatsapp.

    I hope he doesn't expect me to fly to Germany to see him.

  • Chicagowise

    You are 100% right. Most white gay men are nesters. My problem is, I am seldom attracted to them. That, and the fact that they may not immediately know that I'm part black. People say all kinds of things when they think you are just like them.

    And where are you meeting all these white foreigners? When I'm online, I meet 20 something year olds who are probably looking for a sugar daddy or confused bottoms pretending to be tops. I can't tell you how many times I have brushed someone off because their profile says, they're a top... only to discover they are really a bottom, but too shy to say it. Lol

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ha,ha,ha!!

    It doesn't make sense. I live just north of Ft Lauderdale and Miami but most of these dudes are poz or sluts so the pickings are slim.

    I guess there aren't that many black men in Europe so they see me as a fetish or something.

    Most of them are decent and sane and have good jobs.

    Another guy from Germany was close by and we had planned to meet for dinner but he flaked. I am still mad at him but he did tell me he was bisexual so I shouldn't have been surprised.

    i believe its bc they are drug addicts. they are looking forward to a night of sex and drugs and end up with this lunatic serial killer guy. these are the well-known and well-documented risks associated with drug use and that prostitution/hookup culture. their choice, their consequences.

  • Patricia

    thats NOT true. we dont know how high of a dosage they had. we dont know what other combinations of drugs/alcohol were used which also results in death. as that person stated, that fentanyl drug wipes people out in an instant.
