ISLA VISTA, Calif. -

Santa Barbara County sheriff investigators now think the woman whose body was found in the ocean last Saturday fell from the cliffs in Isla Vista.

Giselle Ayala was a freshman at Cal Poly University, San Luis Obispo. She was visiting with friends for the so-called Deltopia event.

The coroner’s office says her injuries are "consistent" with someone who fell a long way.

On Monday at her high school in Santa Rosa, almost 300 people gathered for a candlelight vigil to honor her memory.

They described her as someone who always made others feel welcome and cared for.
