A body was found last night in a car just a few houses down from Paula Abdul’s home. Capt. Jim Miller tells KTTV-TV it may have been a drug overdose/suicide. Apparently the victim was more than a fan of the Idol judge and may have been infatuated with her. Paula was not home at the time, possibly shooting for “American Idol.”
The LAPD were tipped off by a caller who said that a female body may be in a car on the street in question. Police spokeswoman Julianne Sohn says officers responded to a call about 6 p.m. Tuesday and arrived in the Sherman Oaks area to find the body.
The LAPD said the parents of the victim believe their daughter was a “big fan” of Paula’s. It has yet to be determined whether that had anything to do with the death, but it seems a strange coincidence that her body was found just yards from Paula’s home. Police sources said they think the victim is an alleged Abdul stalker andpolice have been to the house “numerous times before” to deal with her.
The victim has not yet been identified, but there is no evidence of foul play.
