Peaches Geldof was found dead earlier this month at the age of 25, with no cause of death released.
The toxicology report results revealed Peaches died of a heroin overdose, which is the same way her mother Paula Yates died in 2000. So sad.
The 25-year-old daughter of Sir Bob Geldof, who is the mother of two young sons, was found dead at her country home earlier this month. Her death was sudden, but was described by police as “non-suspicious”.
The Times reports that police did not discover any evidence of drugs or drug paraphernalia in her home. They were reportedly suspicious that maybe someone had removed the items before they arrived.
Her 11-month-old son was reportedly playing near her dead body.
This tragedy is truly a repeat of history. Peaches’ mother Paula Yates died at the age of 41 of an accidental heroin overdose in 2000. She was also with her young daughter, Tiger Lily, 4, who was her child with the late INXS singer Michael Hutchence.
Just hours before her death, Peaches posted a picture of herself as a little girl with her late mother. She had spoken previously about how difficult it had been growing up without her beloved mother. Now her poor little boys will have the same fate.
The autopsy for Geldolf was carried out by a Home Office Pathologist days after her death came back inconclusive. Tissue and blood samples were sent to a laboratory for testing.
A spokesman for Kent police today said they could not confirm or deny the reports claiming that the young mother had died of an overdose.
They would only state, “The inquest opens later today and that is all I can say.”
The toxicology results have been returned to North West Kent Coroner Roger Hatch who will open an inquest into Peaches’ death later today. A statement from a senior police officer will be heard and the coroner will release the cause of death.
The body of Peaches was found on April 7 at the home she shared in Wrotham, Kent, with her husband Tom Cohen, and their two young sons, Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra.
At the funeral service in the village of Davington, Peaches’ body was carried into the church in a decorated coffin that included a painting of her young family.
The church, St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence, was where Peaches married Thomas Cohen in 2012. It was also where her mother Paula married her father, as well as the place her funeral was held in 2000.
