Man Who Died in Democratic Donor Ed Buck's Home Called Him 'The Devil'

Friends of Timothy Dean, the second black gay man to die inside Ed Buck’s home, say he had warned them away from the powerful Democratic donor.

LOS ANGELES—Powerful Democratic donor Ed Buck solicited Timothy Dean for months prior to Dean's suspicious death in Buck’s home, according to close friends, speaking out for the first time.

Dean was found dead on Jan. 7, the second black gay man to die at Buck’s West Hollywood Home in less than two years. Charges have not been filed against Buck in either death. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office declined to press charges in the 2017 death of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore from a methamphetamine overdose at Buck’s apartment. They reopened an investigation into Moore’s death since Dean died.

Five friends told The Daily Beast that Dean characterized Buck as predatory.

In November, Dean asked DeMarco Majors, his friends of 20 years, to make him a promise. Sitting at Gym Sportsbar in West Hollywood, Dean looked Majors right in the eye.

“Ed Buck hits me up all the time, and I don’t answer none of his text messages,” he said, according to Majors. “Don’t you take your ass over there.”

1. Who's Ed Buck?

Seriously, I had to look him up. He's no relation to Peter, at least:
