Police have confirmed that heroin is a possible cause in the untimely death of UK socialite and mother of two Peaches Geldof. The 25 year-old Geldof was found dead in her home outside London by her husband Thomas Cohen.
The death was originally ruled as “nonsuspicious” and an “unexplained” death.
In the coroner’s report obtained by the London Times, there was evidence of heroin use in the days leading up to her death. If this is true then Peaches’ death bears a tragic resemblance to her mother and TV personality Paula Yates’ death. Yates’ died of a heroin overdose when Peaches was 11.
Peaches told Aga Living magazine that she felt her mother’s presence often and felt as though her mother was living on through her because they were so similar.
