More on the Latest "Idol" Tragedy

People.com is sharing new details about Paula Goodspeed, the woman who was found dead outside Paula Abdul’s home.

Police now believe the death was caused by a drug overdose.

According to the website, Goodspeed sent flowers to Paula just last week, but the note read: “Hope you're doing great. Here's my new cell number. Love J.T.” When Paula called her boyfriend, J.T. Torregiani, to ask why he had changed his number and he said he hadn’t, Paula realized they had come from Goodspeed.

Why? Because in the three years since Goodspeed’s “Idol” audition, Paula had received more than 100 letters from Goodpeed, as well as numerous phone calls and uninvited visits, according to the “People” source.

Other signs of Goodspeed’s infatuation included her car’s license plate, “ABL LV” and the picture of Paula she had hanging from her rearview mirror. Plus, “People” is also reporting that Goodspeed changed her name from Sandra to Paula.
