LOS ANGELES (AP) — Demi Moore says she is stunned and saddened. A 21-year-old man died yesterday in the backyard pool of a Los Angeles home Moore owns.

Moore says she’s in “absolute shock.”

A statement issued by the actress says she was out of the country traveling to meet her daughters for a birthday celebration when she got the “devastating news.”

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office says Edenilson Steven Valle had gone missing for 10 or 15 minutes before his friends found him floating in the deep end of the pool early yesterday. Valle’s family and friends told investigators he didn’t know how to swim.

The apparent drowning was first reported by TMZ.
