RUTLAND (CBS) – The family of a Southern New Hampshire University student who died last week is remembering her love for life.

18-year-old Jamie Lee Cruz was found dead in her dorm room on Saturday.

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.
