He has donated tens of thousands of dollars to California political candidates, Gov. Gavin Newsom, and others, and it is well-known in the LGBTQ political community as well. Some of the activists carried out their political ties, and the family of the victims pardoned him from prosecution.

“No one on the team knew that the Lord He,” the Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said. “We were not at all troubled by his reputation.”

“Under the laws of the member states, however, we found that there was insufficient admissible evidence to hold Mr. Buck accountable for the death of Mr. Moore and Mr. Dean,” Lacey added. “In the end, we came to the conclusion that there will be more options in the context of a federal statute that can carry a long prison sentence.”

Moore, 26, passed away in march of 2017, in Buck’s apartment, after being injected with methamphetamine, researchers said. He was found naked on a mattress in the living room, which was littered with drug paraphernalia.

His death was initially ruled an accident. Investigators reopened the case after the Dean’s death.


Moore’s mother, LaTisha Nixon, said her son told her He had kept him in the house, and against his will, and “shot him up with drugs,” She said.

He appeared in court Thursday to state charges and was being held pending a $4 million bail. His arraignment has been postponed until October. 11.

He is also expected to be in federal court Thursday, where prosecutors will seek to lay hold on him, She said.
