Peaches Geldof Died Of Heroin Overdose

Three months after the untimely death of Peaches Geldof, the socialite’s cause of death has been revealed. The TV personality and model passed away on April 7, 2014 at the age of 25, and the coroner ruled on Wednesday, July 24, that it was due to a heroin overdose, according to US Weekly.

Pathologist Peter Jerreat said in a inquest held in Kent, England, that Geldof’s body showed puncture wounds on the elbows, thumbs, and wrists, and she had heroin levels in the “fatal range” in her system. Her blood stream also held traces of methadone, codeine, and morphine.

Geldof, whose mother Paula Yates also died of a heroin overdose in September 2000, was the mother to two children with S.C.U.M rocker Thomas Cohen. After marrying in September 2012, the couple welcomed son Astala in April 2012, and son Phaedra in April 2013.
