The 21-year-old man who was found dead in Demi Moore's swimming pool on Monday has been identified.

According to the Los Angeles Coroner's office, the victim was 23-year-old Edenilson Steven Valle of Los Angeles, with a source claiming the man to be a friend of Moore's assistant, E! Online reported.

His death occured at a party held by Moore's assistant while she was away. Valle had gone missing for 10 or 15 minutes before his friends found him floating in the deep end of the pool.

Witnesses at the scene said that it looked as if Valle was either poor at swimming or didn't know to swim altogether, and had possibly drowned.

However, the autopsy is still pending. It is also said that the man who wasn't much of a drinker was down a couple of beers.

Moore, 52, had earlier expressed that the devastating incident put her in "absolute shock," requesting for "privacy of all concerned during this sensitive time" from the media.

Valle had graduated from University High School in Los Angeles and was helping promote a skateboarding and snowboarding apparel brand while taking classes at Santa Monica Community College before his tragic death, his friend Gabby Ventura told the Daily News.

“He was a great kid. Never got into any trouble. Everyone loved him,” Ventura told The News Monday. “He was a big part of my life in high school. He was just really talented and smart. He had a lot of goals. He wanted to be an artist and a businessman."
