Alexis Cohen, Former American Idol Contestant, Found Dead

2nd update: Alexis uploaded a video to funny or die on Friday. She posted it on her MySpace. Check it out HERE. It’s not only very vulgar, but a little disturbing.

Apparently, Alexis tried to audition for Idol Season 9, but was turned away at the door…

UPDATE: FOX is reporting that the Ocean County prosecutors office, of Seaside NJ where Alexis’ body was found, believe it was a hit and run. HERE.

Very sad. Former American Idol wannabe, Alexis Cohen, 25, was found dead early this morning. eta: she was found in seaside, nj, not allentown

Many of you remember Alexis, she was the eccentric, potty mouthed Janis Joplin wannabe who auditioned for the judges in both Season 7 and 8. Not considered a serious audition, she was dismissed both times without a golden ticket.

According to Allentown Call:

Cohen was found lying outside around 4 a.m. by two passersby who called 911, Deputy Chief Michael Mohel said. She was taken to Community Medical Center in Toms River, N.J., where she was pronounced dead around 6:35 a.m.

An autopsy is being conducted today, and police are investigating Cohen’s death. Mohel declined to say how police believe she died.

No cause of death, yet. In case you don’t remember her, here are both her auditions, after the jump…
