Moore also expressed sympathy for loved ones of the victim."The loss of a child is an unthinkable tragedy and my heart goes out to this young man's family and friends," she told People. "I ask that you please respect the privacy of all concerned during this sensitive time."

No one from Moore's family was at the house when the body was discovered. The birthday celebration Moore was referring to in her statement was presumably for her daughter Scout, who turns 24 today.
