    New Podcast Tells True Crime Story of Ed Buck and the Lives Shattered on N Laurel Ave

    Shattering the System, a new podcast hosted by pioneering audio journalist Sonari Glinton, explores the true crime story of Ed Buck and sheds light on the lives of Gemmel Moore, and Timothy Dean who both died in Buck’s West Hollywood apartment on N Laurel Avenue. The ten-episode series, currently on its fifth segment as of the posting of this this piece, premiered on August 3rd, and airs every Thursday.

    Glinton interviews Los Angeles County Supervisor Lindsey Horvath, friends of Gemmel Moore, Dean’s roommate, and he even gets a sit down with Buck’s former lawyer and friend, John Duran, as well is his most recent defense attorney Christopher Darden. He also brings Moore’s words to life through an actor who reads excerpts from his personal journal.

    Missing from the podcast five episodes in, is the mention of Jasmyne Cannick, the journalist and political strategist who was instrumental in the conviction of Buck. Her social media posts suggest the podcast was made without her blessing and she has been very vocal for the past seven years that she will only tell her own Ed Buck story for in her own production of a podcast, documentary, or possibly a book.

    Ed Buck was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for supplying drugs to two men who overdosed in his West Hollywood apartment on Laurel Avenue.

    After a six-hour deliberation on July 27, 2021, a jury found Ed Buck, 67, guilty of all nine felony counts against him, including two for distribution of controlled substances resulting in the deaths of Gemmel Moore, 26, who died on July 27, 2017, and Timothy Dean, 55, who died on January 7, 2019.

    The podcast provides an immersive exploration into the convoluted world of Buck, a man who was billed as a powerful democratic donor who worked the system to get away with two deaths inside his apartment. It wasn’t until a third person almost died that he was arrested.

    I don’t know why they accused and back and thought that this was his fault. Those prostitutes came over there they were already high on drugs as the corner report stated. They voluntarily took more drugs at their own free will. They also received payment from outback for coming over there. Did not come over there to read a book it was not Oprah‘s book club. What did they think was going to happen when you take drugs and you overdose you drop dead. It’s not this old man’s fault

    It is possible that Buck was not always so evil, but I bet the meth made him crazy. What nice withdrawal symptoms he must have had! 🙂
