The former gay porn performer died mysteriously at Buck’s West Hollywood home.

In January, former gay porn model Timothy Dean, who performed under the name “Hole Hunter,” was found dead under suspicious circumstances at the West Hollywood, California, home of Ed Buck—a major financial donor and fundraiser for the Democratic party, as reported.

No action was taken against Buck at the time in relation to Dean’s death, or in the death of 26-year-old male escort Gemmel Moore, who died in Buck’s home on July 27, 2017. Both Moore and Dean, 55, were African-American, and at the time, some critics said that the race of the men, as well as Buck’s high-level political connections, caused authorities to go easy on him.

Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey, however, said that neither she nor anyone involved in the investigation knew Buck. “We were not at all moved by his reputation,” she said, as quoted by Fox News.

On Tuesday, Buck was arrested after a third man—whose name has not been released—also suffered an overdose at Buck’s home. This time, the victim survived, but investigators said that there may be as many as 10 more victims in the ongoing case, according to a New York Daily News account.
