Default Screen Dead - Need to disable alarm

Hi. My screen is dead on my phone. I need to somehow disable the alarm.

I cannot seem to find where the alarm data is stored.

I then tried to delete the apk.
I got an ADB by booting into TWRP. Then used ADB SHELL. I attempted to cd into System/App as follows

cd system/app
/sbin/sh: cd: can't cd to system/app

I figured I had a root permission error, so I tried "su" but it couldn't find the command which is odd because I have SuperSu.

I can't navigate the TWRP menus due to my broken screen and don't know what to do.

you can wipe data.... and to do so you can use a openrecovery script
make a file named openrecoveryscript and push it in /cache/recovery/

in the file put the folowing command

wipe data

and then reboot into recovery and it will execute by itself.

by wiping data the phone will reset to factory/rom defaults. you will loose installed data. everything on "sdcard" will stay in place

I considered wiping it, but wanted to avoid that so I can determine who attempts to call/text me before I can get a replacement.

Get an mhl cable and plug it in to a tv or monitor. It mirrors the display so you can navigate it as usual, unless the digitizer AND the panel are both dead...

I should have clarified. The display works as in it can display an image. It just does not recognize my touch other than in a very small area.

If you have root access with adb...
Run adb root
Then adb shell
Cd to /system/media/alarms and delete all the sounds.
Or search for clock in /data/data
