25 July 2009

Another day, another hit-and-run

Just heard about Alexis "Glitter Girl" Cohen from Philly by way of Allentown, of giving Simon Cowell the finger two years straight American Idol fame. Details are sketchy, but it looks like she was killed by a hit-and-run driver around 4 a.m. (I kind of know what that's like, since Channel 10 once said that I myself was killed by a hit-and-run driver.)
MYFOXNY.COM - A former American Idol contestant has been found dead in NJ.
The body of Alexis Cohen, known as 'Glitter Girl,' was found in the street in Seaside Heights, NJ.
Two people walking by saw her body and called police.
The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office says she appears to have been a victim of a hit-and-run.
The 25-year-old auditioned for Idol in January 2008 and returned for a second time in 2009, but never received a golden ticket to Hollywood.

So sad that people would just leave someone dead in the street because of something they did. Pathetic that some folks don't think that people who do such a thing should be punished on par with murder levels.

Really sad. I remember when her audition ran originally, quite the character. Her poor mom. Jesus.

First Michael Jackson and now Alexis Cohen. Condolences to Alexis. She was a raging riot. Alexis Cohen, 25, was apparently struck and killed by a car in what authorities are calling an apparent homicide. If you are curious to know more about her I have collected some good sites and articles (more than 200 sites) that gives complete information (Latest News, Pics, Videos) about Alexis Cohen. Check the below if you are interested.
