Alexis Cohen, who was ridiculed by Simon Cowell and termed the Green Goblin during auditions for American Idol, was killed on the New Jersey shore Saturday.

According to the The Asbury Park Press, Alexis Cohen, 25, was apparently struck and killed by a car in what authorities are calling an apparent homicide.

Deputy Chief Michael Mohel of the Ocean County Prosecutors Office reports that an autopsy revealed that the Allentown, Pa., passed away after suffering severe chest, abdominal and closed head injuries as a result of the collision.

Authorities are currently conducting an investigation into Alexis Cohen's death, asking anyone with information on the hit and run to speak up.

Alexis Cohen provided one of American Idol's most colorful tryouts.

Cohen rose to reality stardom after her 2007 American Idol audition resulted in a showdown with Cowell, who likened her to the Spider-Man character.

Alexis responded with a bird-flipping rant, in which she claimed to "march to the beat of a different drummer" while vowing to "leave with [her] dignity."

Resilient, she returned to audition in 2008. Again, she was shown the door.
