Paula Goodspeed thought to have committed suicide
Paula Abdul has expressed her shock after a fan was found dead near the singer’s LA mansion.
Police discovered the body of Paula Goodspeed, 30, in a car alongside prescription drugs and pictures of the reality show judge on Tuesday.
It is thought the woman, who once auditioned for American Idol, was obsessed with the star.
‘I am deeply shocked and saddened at what transpired,’ said a statement released by Paula Abdul’s publicist. ‘My heart and prayers go out to her family.’
Although an official cause of death has yet to be determined, Detective Robert Bub of the LAPD has suggested it could have been ‘suicide by overdose’.
Paula Goodspeed auditioned on series 5 of the hit US show, but failed to impress Paula, 46, or her fellow judges.
