Amster told Fox News on Monday night: “This is a tragedy. … Mr. Buck had nothing to do with his death.”
He said that his client did not know where Dean “got the meth, and he went to the apartment drunk.”
Amster debt of the L. A. drug problem on the West Hollywood city council, which he said would rather focus on the headlines than solving the problems of the community: “The meth problem is a problem in West Hollywood. … Drugs are out of hand in West Hollywood.”
Activists and family members have called for Buck’s arrest, saying, if Dean and the other man who died, 26 years old, Gemmel Moore, was white, there would be more attention to the matter.
Moore died of a methamphetamine overdose in July 2017. He was found naked on a mattress in Buck’s living room, which is littered with drug paraphernalia.
The prosecutors do not file criminal charges, citing insufficient evidence.
