This is too sad.
The victim has been identified as 21-year-old Edenilson Steven Valle from Los Angeles.
Edenilson’s family told authorities he didn’t know how to swim.
Police have confirmed that not only was the 52-year-old not home during the incident, she was also not involved in the terrible tragedy.
Officers are conducting an investigation into Edenilson’s death, and said that there were only five people on the property when he drowned.
Authorities also revealed that one of the people at the home was one of Demi’s assistants. They also said that no one from the actress’ family — including her daughters — were at the house that night.
According to the coroner’s office, Edenilson was missing for about fifteen minutes before his friends found him in the pool.
We can’t imagine losing someone so young. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this sad loss.
