Peaches Geldof 'Died Of A Heroin Overdose'

Writer, model and TV presenter Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, it has been reported.

The results of a toxicology report at her inquest will reveal the drugs overdose as the cause of death, according to The Times newspaper.

This afternoon's hearing will be opened and adjourned by North West Kent Coroner Roger Hatch at Gravesend Old Town Hall from 2pm. It is expected to last around 10 minutes.

The 25-year-old's body was found at the home she shared with her husband - musician Tom Cohen and their two young sons - in Kent on April 7.

Police found no evidence of drugs paraphernalia at the time, leading to speculation it may have been removed.

A post-mortem examination held two days after she died proved inconclusive.

Hours before she died, Peaches posted a picture of her as a youngster with her mother.

Paula Yates died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000 at the age of 41.

Peaches' funeral was held in the village of Davington - at the same church as her mother's - and was attended by celebrities including Kate Moss, Jaime Winstone and Jools Holland.

The mother of two's coffin included a picture of her young family.

Police have previously said the death of Sir Bob Geldof's daughter is being treated as non-suspicious, unexplained and sudden.
