A friend of Catherine's, who did not wish to be named, said: "I found out this morning and I feel sick, I can't concentrate and I can't work.
"I've known her for years and she was a lovely girl. Really sweet. I only spoke to her the other day.
"Everyone seems to be feeling down about it. "This sort of thing shouldn't happen to anyone, especially not her, she was the nicest girl.
"Whoever did this was evil, pure and simple."
Maurice Hicks, head teacher of Holyrood Academy, spoke of his shock at the news.
"Everyone at Holyrood Academy is deeply saddened and shocked to hear the news about Catherine," he said. "She is warmly remembered as a very friendly young person, gregarious and with a great sense of humour."
