Heroin is ‘likely’ to have played a role in the death of Peaches Geldof, an inquest has revealed.
The results of a toxicology report showed TV presenter Geldof, who died suddenly last month aged 25, had the drug in her system.
Geldof was the second daughter of musician and campaigner Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, who died of a heroin overdose at the age of 41.
Geldof, who was 11 when her mother died, left two sons and a husband.
At a brief inquest in Gravesend, Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham, told the hearing: “Recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death.”
Musician Tom Cohen, whom she married in 2012, is understood to have found his wife’s body at their home in Wrotham in Kent after becoming concerned that he could not get hold of her.
