Demi Moore 'in shock' after man drowns in her backyard pool

Dead Body Found In Demi Moore's Swimming Pool

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Demi Moore says she's in "absolute shock" over the death of a 21-year-old man in her backyard pool in Los Angeles.

The 52-year-old actress says in a statement released through her publicist Sunday that she's out of the country and wasn't home at the time but the death at a party hosted by her assistant is an "unthinkable tragedy."

Los Angeles County coroner's Lt. Fred Corral has now identified the victim as 21-year-old Edenilson Steven Valle.

Corral says Valle had gone missing for 10 or 15 minutes before his friends found him floating in the deep end of the pool Sunday morning.

Valle's family and friends told investigators he didn't know how to swim.
