Peaches Geldof died of heroin overdose


    Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, it is expected to be announced today.

    It has been claimed that results of a toxicology report will be announced by detectives in the morning, as an inquest into the mother-of-two’s death is opened and immediately adjourned.

    The 25-year-old daughter of Sir Bob Geldof was found dead at her country home earlier this month in what was described by police as a ‘non-suspicious’ and ‘sudden unexplained’ death.

    The Times reports that police discovered no evidence of drugs paraphernalia in the house, triggering suspicions that the house may have been searched and items removed prior to their arrival.


    Her 11-month-old son was believed to have been in the home with Peaches when she died

    In a tragic case of history repeating itself, Peaches’ own mother Paula Yates died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41.

    She too was alone with young daughter by Michael Hutchence, Tiger Lily, then aged four.

    Hours before she died, Peaches is said to have posted a picture of her as a young girl with her late mother.
