In the midst of various reports, it now seems Demi Moore and her family were not present at the time that a visiting guest fell into her backyard pool and drowned.

The 21-year-old man was allegedly visiting Moore's assistant during a party, fell in accidentally, and didn't know how to swim. His body was found early Sunday morning, though there are discrepancies in reports as to how long his body was in the pool before its discovery.

According to USA Today, who spoke to Lt. Fred Corral of the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner directly, "there was a 911 call at about 5:15 a.m., and the man was pronounced dead at 5:30 a.m."

The actress's home is in Beverly Hills, where the above-mentioned assistant had had a small group over.

The man's name has not yet been released as the investigation is ongoing, and foul play is not suspected.

Update: The identity of the deceased has been revealed as Edenilson Steven Valle.

Demi Moore also released a statement in regards to the death.

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.
