Demi Moore Pool Victim Identified, Didn’t Know How To Swim
Demi Moore’s pool drowning victim has been identified. The man who drowned in Moore’s pool is 21-year-old Edenilson Steven Valle. According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, Valle didn’t know how to swim, making his drowning accidental.
That said, no one really knows his immediate connection to Moore or her staff members. According to US Weekly, at the time of Valle’s death Demi Moore was not on the property. It’s believed that her three daughters weren’t present at the home either.
The only people that were in Demi’s home were employees of Moore’s and it was a small group at that. Five people were present when Valle fell into the pool late at night. It’s said that the Los Angeles resident wasn’t found in the pool until that morning.

Moore continued, “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.”
