Peaches Geldof: Heorin Overdose Killed Geldof

Almost nine day after the funeral of Peaches Geldof, police revealed her death cause. Peaches Geldof "died of heroine overdose". Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, told DailyMail that "a post-mortem examination was inconclusive, prompting further tests."

But he said: 'Recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death.'

She was the daughter of Sir Bob Geldof. Peaches Geldof was just 25 years old when she was found dead at her home. And its a tragic repeat of history, as 14 years ago her mother Paula Yates was also died because of fatal overdose of heroine. Paula died in 2000. 

Peaches Geldof was somewhat of a wild child in her teenage days. She became a rebel without a cause and acted up a lot too in her anti-social streak. But later in life she gained a sense of responsibility and settled down with a husband and two kids. 

Her two cute toddlers were often seen accompanying her on her excursions. She became a part of the celebrity culture and often took an avid part in the star-studded events related to it. Her funeral was held on Easter Monday .

Home Office Pathologist did post mortem of Peaches few days after her death. And they also send inconclusive and samples of her blood and tissue to a laboratory for testing the presence of any toxins.

And now a police spokesman refused to confirm or deny the reports about death of Peaches Geldof due to heroine overdose. 'The inquest opens later today and that is all I can say,' said Kent police spokesman.

One of the first things I told her was that I knew very little of her back story, and Peaches laughed in a fulsome way that I quickly came to see as an essential part of her personality. There was something overflowing about her. An avidity, combined with enormous mental energy. I think the laughter was partly surprise — intentionally, I hadn’t done my homework — and partly relief. ‘The worst thing,’ she told me, ‘is ...
