A 26-year-old man was found dead in the home of a high-profile Democratic donor in July, according to Daily Mail.
The cause of death was believed to be a methamphetamine overdose, but the man’s mother said he’d been involved with “sex-working.”

The Los Angeles County Coroner declared Gemmel Moore’s death an ‘accident,’ due to a ‘methamphetamine’ overdose, the WeHo Times publication reported.
But Moore’s family believes that foul play was involved in the hours between Gemmel’s arrival at Buck’s home and his fatal overdose.
During a phone interview with the WeHo Times last week, Gemmel Moore’s mother, LaTisha Nixon, said that her son had been involved with sex-work for the past few years.
‘I called one of my son’s friends and was like, “who the hell is Edward Buck?'” Nixon said, speaking from her home in Spring Texas. ‘And my son’s friend was like, “oh my God, that’s that white guy, that wealthy white politician guy… he was like “oh my God…’”
‘When he calmed down, he told me that Ed Buck was one of my son’s clients and that Ed Buck was one of his clients as well,’ Nixon said. ‘[Buck] would have my son to go out to… Santa Monica Boulevard looking for young gay black guys so he could inject them with drugs, see their reaction and how [they] would react and take pictures of them.’

Authorities have not charged Buck with any crime, nor were any drugs or paraphernalia found in his home.
Buck in 2015 gave Hillary Clinton $2700 and another $250 a year later, the WeHO Times reported, adding that Buck has also given thousands of dollars to Democratic incumbents in the state.
Other photographs found on his Facebook page show him with celebrities and high-profile California politicians, including Governor Jerry Brown.
Buck has not responded to any requests for comment at this time.
