Authorities have identified a second man who died at the Southern California home of a Democratic donor.

The Los Angeles coroner’s office said Thursday that 55-year-old Timothy Dean of West Hollywood was found dead at the donor’s apartment on Monday.

He’s the second black man in a year and a half to have died at the West Hollywood residence of Ed Buck, who is white.

Activists have been calling for Buck’s arrest, saying if Dean and the other man who died, 26-year-old Gemmel Moore, had been white, there would be more attention and action on the case.

Moore died of a methamphetamine overdose.

Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster, has said Dean was an old friend of Buck, arrived at his apartment intoxicated and died of an accidental overdose.
