Last night around 6:00 p.m., LAPD officers found the body of a missing woman in a car next to the home of Paula Abdul's Sherman Oaks home on Beverly Ridge Drive. The woman's identify has not been released, but police say it is definitely not Abdul. TMZ reports that "the parents of the victim believe their daughter was a 'big fan' of Paula's" and that her death may be from a drug overdose. Additionally, the woman, who is in her 30s, "had an unnatural obsession" with Paula Abdul, according to the Ventura County Sheriff's Department who tipped LAPD off to the woman's possible whereabouts. Her license plate read "ABL LV" and a lanyard hanging from the rear mirror had a photo of Abdul on it.
