Paula Abdul PAbdul200AI.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - A woman found dead near the home of "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul committed suicide by taking an overdose of prescription drugs, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner's office.

The report didn't specify which drugs Paula Goodspeed used to end her life.

Officials had suspected suicide, but the coroner's office waited for toxicology tests to confirm the cause of death. Goodspeed did not leave a note.

Goodspeed was teased for her "Proud Mary" performance at a season five audition. She said she was a huge fan of Abdul and created life-size paintings of her.

Abdul criticized producers of "American Idol" for putting Goodspeed on the show even though they were warned she was obsessed with Abdul.
