Peaches Geldof’s death likely linked to heroin: police

Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof, arrives for the European premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" in LondonHeroin probably played a role in the death of Peaches Geldof, the daughter of musician and Band Aid founder Bob Geldof, who died in her family home last month while alone with one of her two young sons, police said on Thursday. “There was recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death,” Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham said in a statement at the opening of the inquest into Geldof’s death. Geldof, a media and fashion personality and the mother of two young boys, was the second of Irish musician and campaigner Bob Geldof and Yates’s three daughters. The inquest heard her body was found by her husband of two years, musician Thomas Cohen, in a spare bedroom of their home in Wrotham, Kent, in southern England in the afternoon of Monday, April 7.
