'American Idol' contestant Alexis Cohen laid to rest

Posted on

Approximately 100 people gathered in suburban Pennsylvania today for the private funeral of American Idol contestant Alexis Cohen, who died July 25 after being hit by a car in Seaside Heights, N.J., People.com reports. Various donors helped pay for the plot and burial services for Cohen, who lived in South Whitehall, a poor neighborhood just north of Allentown, according to her hometown paper. Daniel Bark, 23, was charged earlier this week with her death by vehicular homicide, aggravated manslaughter, and leaving the scene of a car accident. Bark is being held in a New Jersey jail on $150,000 bail.
