Demi Moore "In Shock" After Man Was Found Dead in Her Pool
A 21-year-old man was found dead in Demi Moore's swimming pool this weekend, following a gathering at the actress's house, according to TMZ. The man – identified as Edenilson Steven Valle of Los Angeles - reportedly did not know how to swim and appeared to have fallen and slipped in the pool, law enforcement officials told the site.
Demi was not in town when this happened and officials said none of her family was present either. According to NBC Los Angeles, Demi's personal assistant and four other people were at the home when the drowning occurred. Steven had reportedly gone missing for 10 or 15 minutes before his friends found him floating in the deep end of the pool Sunday morning.
"I am in absolute shock. I was out of the country traveling to meet my daughters for a birthday celebration when I got the devastating news," she said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. "The loss of a child is an unthinkable tragedy and my heart goes out to this young man's family and friends. I ask that you please respect the privacy of all concerned during this sensitive time."
Sending our thoughts to Steven's family and friends as well. We can't even imagine what they're going through right now.
