A 21-year-old attended a booze-fueled party in Demi Moore’s mansion and drowned in her pool two years ago. Now, Victim Edenilson Steven Valle’s parents filed a lawsuit in February, to which they just added Demi Moore as a defendant.
Demi Moore was actually out of town, and a huge party was thrown by the house’s caretaker, who is the main defendant in this trial. However, since Moore owns the property, the parents decided to add her in as well.
The lawsuit says the pool was dangerous and unmarked, and the house was dark, and full of alcohol. It was only when most of the party goers left, that the caretaker noticed Valle’s body, face down, floating in the pool.
The Daily Mail reports:
Valle died after attending a party at the house in July 2015, which was thrown by Moore’s caretaker while she was out of town.
Most of the partygoers left at one point, and later returned to find Valle face down in the pool.
Investigators believe Valle tripped and fell into the pool and then drowned. Earlier, he told the other partygoers that he didn’t know how to swim.
The lawsuit alleges people who went to the party were forced to navigate a perilous environment that included a dark pool with an unmarked deep end and dangerous walkways.
It also alleges there was alcohol at the party.
The suit reads: ‘House manager Lenny Hernandez knew there was drinking that night, and in fact she was serving alcohol at a party which was unsafe to host.
‘Police photos of the backyard show very serious lighting issues and numerous decorative rocks placed randomly for effect, creating abundant trip hazards.’
It’s unclear how much the family is seeking in damages.
Moore released a statement shortly after the death, describing it as: ‘an unthinkable tragedy’.
