In less than two years, two men have been found dead at prominent Democratic donor and LGBT community member Ed Buck's West Hollywood home, a development that has West Hollywood council members and local LGBT leaders urging authorities to launch a full investigation.
At 1:05 a.m. Monday morning, West Hollywood sheriff's deputies responded to a report that a person was not breathing at Buck's Laurel Avenue apartment. Authorities say the person who called attempted to perform CPR, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene, the cause of death yet unknown.
"The dead man’s name has not been released, but Nicole Nishida, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Department, said he was black," the Los Angeles Times reports. "Buck previously was investigated for the death of another black man, the 2017 overdose of Gemmel Moore, 26."
