Police have reportedly found no evidence of drug or alcohol use, but they are waiting for toxicology test results to confirm that.

Her parents are waiting for results of a police investigation before talking about what they think might have caused her death.

In the meantime, a service for Cruz was scheduled for Wednesday.
