2010 Westport H.S. graduate dies in Canada

A 2010 graduate of Westport High School died at his college in Canada yesterday.

The body of Cameron Bruce, 18, was found in the grass outside a dorm at Queen's University in Ontario. Today would have been Bruce's first day of classes.

Investigators are focusing on a piece of sheet or clothing hanging out of a window of the six-story building.

Bruce's former teachers at Staples High School described him as a hard-working student and one of the school's top trumpeters.

"He's the type of kid you enjoy teaching because he wanted to learn," says teacher Nick Mariconda.

An autopsy was scheduled for today, but there is no word yet on the results.
