ST. ANDREWS, Scotland-

A student from Rocklin was found dead Tuesday at St Andrews University in Scotland, where she was due to graduate in June.

Kaitlyn Vasconcellos, 24, is a graduate of Whitney High School. Her death is still being investigated, but is not considered to be suspicious.

Vasconcellos' passion was for theatre, and was an avid supporter of the LGBT community, according to school administration.

"I know that her teachers have been shocked and enormously saddened by her death," St Andrews University Principal Louise Richardson wrote. “They will remember Kate as a quiet, thoughtful and determined student with an unfailingly pleasant nature."
