Demi Moore is ”in absolute shock” after a man was found dead in her swimming pool.
The 52-year-old actress – who has daughters Rumer, 26, Scout, 24, and 21-year-old Tallulah with ex-husband Bruce Willis – wasn’t at home when the body of 21-year-old Edenilson Steven Valle was discovered at the bottom of her pool yesterday following a party thrown by her caretaker – but she is still devastated by the tragedy.
She said in a statement: ”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. 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.”
According to TMZ, the man didn’t know how to swim, and his body was discovered after the caretaker and some friends returned to the property after going out briefly.
Law enforcement sources told the website: ”The man who died did not know how to swim and it appears he slipped and fell in the pool.”
It is believed that authorities are still investigating but are likely to rule out foul play.
