Peaches Geldof Cause of Death: Heroin Overdose, New Report Finds

by at .

Toxicology reports have revealed that British model and TV personality Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose last month, according to a published report.

The Times of London said that the toxicology results showing her heroin overdose will be revealed today at an inquest into the 25-year-old's death.

The report says Peaches had become increasingly "obsessed" with the death of her mother, Paula Yates, a television writer and presenter who died at age 41.

Yates was found dead at her home in London in September 2000. At the time, a coroner ruled that Yates had died of an accidental heroin overdose.

Similarly, Peaches Geldof was found dead at her country home in Wrotham, Kent, England on April 7. Police initially described her death as "non-suspicious."

A post-mortem examination was deemed inconclusive, and police found no evidence of drugs at the house, but reports suggest items may have been removed.

It was not clear what was taken or who may have supplied the heroin to Geldof, who had a history of alleged drug use dating as far back as 2008.
