The L.A. County Coroner’s Office eventually ruled Moore’s cause of death to an accidental methamphetamine overdose. While Moore’s death was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, prosecutors announced on July 26, 2018, that they would not be charging Buck.
On Monday, January 7, 2019 — 18 months after Moore was found dead in Buck’s apartment –another deceased male was found at Buck’s residence.
