Various national outlets are reporting that Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose and that this will be revealed during today’s inquest.

An inquest happening later today in Gravesend will reveal the cause of the her death. Until now the cause had remained unknown, with her post mortem results proving inconclusive.

  • The Times* newspaper’s front page claims that Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, which would tragically mirror the demise of her mother, Paula Yates, who died of an accidental overdose at 41.

The model and TV presenter was found dead at with her 11-month old son, Phaedra by her side, at her home in Wrotham, Kent on April 7.

Police initially reported that her death was "non-suspicious and unexplained", and found no evidence of drug paraphernalia when searching her home. The Times claims that these might have been removed before the property was searched.

Peaches reportedly suffered an overdose in 2008, from which she had to be revived. However, these latest rumours have yet to be 100% confirmed.
