Demi Moore released a statement on Sunday following news that a 21-year-old man was found dead in the pool at her Los Angeles home.

“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 in a statement provided to EW. “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.”

News of the death was reported early on Sunday by TMZ. A representative for the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Los Angeles Division told CNN that neither Moore nor anyone in her family was at home at the time of the man’s death. According to an NBC affiliate in Los Angeles, a total of five people were present at Moore’s home on Saturday night when the death occurred.

An investigation is ongoing, but the death has been ruled an accident.
