It’s delayed justice considering he should’ve been arrested and sent to prison years ago after he killed his first victim, but it’s some justice nonetheless. Serial killer Ed Buck, the wealthy white gay Democratic donor who murdered at least two gay black men (one of whom was gay porn star Timothy Dean, while the other was sex worker Gemmel Moore) in his West Hollywood apartment by injecting them with methamphetamine has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for his crimes. Prosecutors had recommended that Buck be sentenced to life in prison for the murders, but at 67 years old now, he should, hopefully, die in prison before being released. Via ABC:

Buck, now 67, lured young Black men who were often experiencing homelessness, addiction, and/or poverty to his apartment for sexually charged sessions in which he would inject them with methamphetamine and drug them with sedatives, with and without their consent, federal prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memorandum.

Buck solicited his victims in various ways, including using social media platforms, dating and escort websites, or via referrals from prior victims, including individuals he hired to do other work for him, offering a finder’s fee for referrals, evidence showed.
