Demi Moore

An unidentified male was found dead in actress Demi Moore’s swimming pool during a pool party held at her Benedict Canyon estate on Saturday night.

The man’s lifeless body was pulled from the pool at 5 a.m. Sunday. His cause of death is unknown.

A LAPD spokesman downplayed Moore’s involvement with the pool party which he described as a “small gathering” that was hosted by one of Moore’s assistants.

“An assistant had a small gathering of about six individuals,” said Officer Mike Lopez, who added the deceased was “a 21-year-old male Hispanic from Los Angeles.”

Moore also distanced herself from her pool party in a statement to TheWrap on Sunday.

“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,” Moore said. “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.”

Police are withholding the man’s name until the next of kin has been notified.
