Alexis Cohen the former idol contestant was allegedly killed by a drunk driver. Alexis Cohen's claim to fame besides being a contestant on American Idol was when she flipped off Simon Cowell.

"Former ''American Idol'' contestant Alexis Cohen, whose profanity-laced rant on national television garnered her a bizarre sort of fame, was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver early Saturday in Seaside Heights, N.J., according to the Ocean County prosecutor's office.

Cohen's death, by ''chest and abdominal injuries, along with a closed head injury secondary to a motor vehicle collision,'' has been ruled a homicide, said Michael Mohel, deputy chief of the prosecutor's office.

Cohen, 25, of Allentown, was found lying on or near the street around 4 a.m. by two passers-by who called 911, Mohel said. She was taken to Community Medical Center in Toms River, N.J., where she was pronounced dead around 6:35 a.m., he said." via The Morning Call
