Alexis Cohen, Ex-American Idol Contestant Killed in Hit and Run in Seaside Height, NJ (Arrest made)


Just bizarre and tragic on so many levels …

25 year old Alexis Cohen, an ex-American Idol contestant was killed early Saturday morning in  Seaside Height, NJ by a hit and run driver. According to reports, her autopsy indicated she suffered chest, head and abdominal injuries caused by the collision.

A sad and tragic way to go. Many will remember Alexis Cohen’s aired audition with American Idol in January 2008 when she failed to impress the judges. Cohen then went postal after being rejected by the Idol judges and has a thing or two to say about Simon Cowell. Sadly, her 15 minutes of fame were captured for eternity on YouTube.

From her audition, Alexia seemed a bit of a troubled soul, however, no one deserves to be killed by a cowardly hit and run driver.

Alexis Cohen, Rest in Peace

23 year old Daniel Bark of Toms River, NJ was arrested Sunday night in the hit and run death of Alexis Cohen. Bark has been charged with second degree manslaughter.

      RIP Alexis,
      this is a tragic case of a young troubled woman
      and a young man who now because of ignorance,
      is now going to have to walk the rest of his life knowing because of his stupidity, some innocent
      person had to pay.
      what makes it more sad is that it was a person who was already troubled.
      he gets what he deserves and hope he pays for what
      he has done.
      let this be a lifes lesson to all drunks trying to drive.
