Coroner: 'Idol' judge Paula Abdul's alleged stalker died from overdose

By Christopher Rocchio, 01/20/2009 

A coroner has confirmed that Paula Abdul's alleged stalker died due from a successful suicide attempt outside of the American Idol judge's home.

Los Angeles Coroner spokesman Ed Winter ruled the death of Paula Goodspeed -- a 30-year-old former Idol auditioner and Abdul fan -- as a suicide due to "acute multiple prescription drug intoxication," E! News reported Tuesday.

The specific types of drugs found in Goodspeed's body will not be disclosed, according to E! News.

Goodspeed was found dead in her car near Abdul's Sherman Oaks, CA house on the evening of November 11. Her car -- which featured the license plate "ABL LV" and had a photo of Abdul hanging from its rear view mirror -- was found a few houses down from Abdul's.

Los Angeles Police subsequently confirmed that Goodspeed had visited Abdul's house on multiple occasions during the past few years.

In addition, Abdul stated Goodspeed had attempted suicide outside of her house on a previous occasion and also lashed out at Idol producers for allowing Goodspeed to audition on the show's fifth season despite Abdul's warnings that she was a stalker.
