Friends identified the second black man to die in apartment of wealthy Democrat donor Ed Buck in 18 months.
Timothy Dean, 55, from West Hollywood, died in Democratic Party donor Ed Buck's apartment on Monday.
In an interview with KTLA-5, Ottavio Taddei, Dean’s roommate for three years, said “he was a wonderful person … I lived with him, and he never did drugs. I’ve never seen him on drugs, ever.”
Sheriff's officials have said they will review Moore's case in conjunction with the investigation into Dean's death.
So far, no cause of death has been released for Dean.
But many believe he is the latest victim of a deeply disturbing pattern of behavior — including, according to DailyMailTV, a man who dated Buck last year.
Dean worked at Saks Fifth Avenue's Beverly Hills location and was well-liked in the community, his roommate, Ottavio Taddei, said according to KTLA.
