The Times of London reported Thursday morning that Peaches Geldof, British media personality, died from a heroin overdose. "Recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death," said Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate during a 10-minute hearing Thursday morning. The AP also reported "that a post-mortem examination was inconclusive, prompting further tests."
The 25-year-old was found unconscious in her Notting Hill home on April 7. Shortly after, she was pronounced dead by the South East Coast Ambulance Service. At the time the cause of death was unknown. Peaches' mother, Paula Yates, also a TV personality, died of a heroin overdose in 2000.
