I've tore out a few shower floors that were saturated like this. None were mine. Every time, either the mud wasn't true 5 to 1 deck mud which means it was too hard and dense for water to flow thru it. Or, the preslope was too flat, or the weep holes were blocked.

This happens with surface applied membrane showers too. Some people says it happens even more often. Plus you can't have a surface membrane with the drain set up you now have. You can remove enough tiles around the drain to check the weepholes. I wouldn't unbolt the drain, that's not where the problem is.
