According to the London Times, a post-death inquiry into the sudden death of Peaches Geldof has concluded that the television host and model passed away from a heroin overdose. Geldof was found dead in her home on April 27 at the age of 25 while caring for her 11-month-old son. Her own mother passed away in 2000 of a heroin overdose as well, while watching Geldof’s then-four-year-old sister. The initial post-mortem examination failed to establish the cause of death. The official results will be announced in an inquest by Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham on Thursday.
