A man who died last month at the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic Party fundraiser Ed Buck warned his friends to steer clear of the well-connected donor and referred to him as a “f—ing devil” and “a horrible, horrible man,” according to a report Monday night.
Timothy Dean, 55, was found dead in Buck’s apartment early on Jan. 7, 17 months after 26-year-old male escort Gemmel Moore was found dead of a methamphetamine overdose. The Daily Beast reported that Dean and Buck had a relationship years before Moore’s death, but Dean’s friends claimed the relationship turned into a one-sided affair — with Buck sending multiple text messages to Dean and Dean declining to respond.
One friend of Dean, DeMarco Majors, told the website that Moore told him during a November 2018 conversation: “Ed Buck hits me up all the time, and I don’t answer none of his text messages. Don’t you take your a– over there.” Majors said he told Dean that he didn’t know who Buck was, but that did not deter Dean.
“Don’t you go over there,” Dean reportedly told Majors again. “I’m not going over there either. S—, I’m not trying to end up dead.”
Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster, described Dean at the time of his death as a “longtime friend” of Buck who had “reached out for his help” and had begun “acting in a bizarre way” after he arrived at Buck’s apartment the night he died. When contacted by Fox News about the Daily Beast report, Amster wrote in an email: “We are in possession of text messages from Mr. Dean to Mr. Buck that refute the picture the Daily Beast is trying to paint of the relationship between Mr. Dean and Mr. Buck. The text messages do not put Mr. Dean in a good light. We are sure that law enforcement are in possession of these texts as well.
