Ed Buck, Alleged Predator, Evicted from Apartment After Arrest


The political activist must abandon his longtime West Hollywood home after two gay Black men died there.

Alleged predator Ed Buck, accused of contributing to the overdoses of Black gay men, was recently served with an eviction notice on his West Hollywood apartment.

Out activist Jasmyne Cannick, instrumental in pushing Los Angeles County officials to arrest Buck for the deaths of Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean, tweeted an image of the eviction notice on Wednesday.

The notice came from lawyers of Buck's landlord and gives him three days to vacate the premises. Someone other than Buck will have to box up his things since he's currently in prison; he was arrested on September 17, accused of federal and state crimes tied to the overdose deaths of Moore and Dean, as well as another overdose this month where the man survived. Moore, in his diary, said Buck got him hooked up on methamphetamine and administered the drug to him. Moore died in Buck's apartment in 2017 and Dean this year. Buck allegedly targeted vulnerable gay Black men, drugging them to death or near-death for his sexual gratification.

The reasoning for Buck's eviction is listed as follows:

"On Sept. 17, 2019 the Los Angeles Sheriff (sic) Department raided your unit and found illegal drugs. In addition, there have been 2 deaths of persons who have died within the unit due to a drug overdose. There was another person who overdosed within the unit the week before Sept. 17, 2019. This incident gave rise to the current raid by the Sheriff's Office."
