Ed Buck is going to prison.

Defamed political donor Ed Buck has been found guilty of all nine felony charges in his fetish murder trial. Buck was on trial for his fetish of injecting men with meth during his sexual encounters with them. Most often, Buck fulfilled this fetish with gay Black men and sex workers. This eventually caused the deaths of two men, Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55.

While Buck got away with his acts for several years, activists, including Moore’s mother, advocated for Buck’s arrest. In addition, Moore’s journal was discovered in 2017 and pointed out his perspective of the toxic connection.

“I honestly don’t know what to do. I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that. Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth it was very painful, but after all the troubles, I became addicted to the pain and fetish/fantasy.”

“My life is at an alltime [sic] high right now & I mean that from all ways. I ended up back at Buck [sic] house again and got munipulated [sic] into slamming again. I even went to the point where I was forced to doing 4 within a 2day [sic] period. This man is crazy and its [sic] sad. Will I ever get help?”

His last entry, in Dec. 3, 2016, goes: “If it didn’t hurt so bad, I’d kill myself but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now.”

“Buck’s preference was to personally inject victims, and he pressured or incentivized victims to let him do so, sometimes offering large cash bonuses to coerce a victim to agree to an injection or additional injections,” prosecutors said in court papers. “Other times, Buck simply injected victims while they were unconscious.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lindsay Bailey said during her closing arguments for the prosecution on Friday that, “[Buck] would find desolate, vulnerable victims and push meth on them over and over… until they went unconscious. That’s what he liked about it – the power gave him sexual gratification.”

She added, “Every time he stuck a needle in someone’s arm, he was playing God. And he never stopped – not even after two men died.”

The jury deliberated for four hours after a two-week trial before finding Buck guilty. Buck was found guilty of two counts of distribution of methamphetamine resulting in death, four counts of distribution of methamphetamine, one count of maintaining a drug-involved premise, and two counts of enticement to travel in interstate commerce for prostitution.

Ed Buck is now awaiting sentencing and faces a possible life sentence.

  1. One last thing…I wonder what the kink community thinks about Buck being labeled a fetishist…is torturing people to death now considered just another sexual fetish?

  3. What people are not understanding about this is that it really wasn’t about sex. Sex was merely the pretense that Buck used to get the men there. There are a lot of older gay men like Buck who enjoy torturing younger gay men, no matter what their race is. Buck enjoyed torturing other gay men, and he tortured two of them to death. It is similar to rape in that it is solely about power, it is never really about sex, there are a lot of men who do not take “no” for an answer. This behavior originated in the gay bars, it still persists there but it has carried over to the apps. Gay bars and clubs are filled with older gay males lay in wait for younger gay men (chicken), to arrive so that they can take advantage of them, and a lot of these men enjoy being quite cruel. The racial implications have to do with the criminal court system looking at these victims like they were disposable. The behavior is a manifestation of internalized homophobia that men like Buck have taken to the extreme. Although Buck appeared to be comfortable with his homosexuality, in reality he reviled himself as much as he reviled his victims. That they were black just made it easier for him to disregard their humanity because he is a racist. I cannot imagine what the last moments of these men’s lives were like, it leaves me both furious and profoundly saddened. Any effective change is going to come by taking gay spaces away from the drug crowd that enables this.

  4. Your article omits that Buck was a prominent Democrat donor including to Hillary Clinton, Gavin Newsom and many others.
