Officials had suspected suicide, but the coroner's office had been waiting on toxicology tests. Winter said Goodspeed, who was from Waterville, Maine, did not leave a note.
Goodspeed was panned for her "Proud Mary" performance at a season five audition. She said she was a huge fan of Abdul and created life-size paintings of her. Abdul has recently backed off criticism of "Idol" producers, who she had claimed put Goodspeed on the air despite warnings that she was obsessed.
