    Reports: Peaches Geldof died of Heroin overdose



    Peaches Geldof died from an overdose of heroin – the same drug that killed her mother Paula Yates - an inquest will reportedly be told today.

    Shortly before she was found dead, Ms Geldof, 25, had posted a photograph on Twitter of her as a child with her mother. She had spoken of never getting over her mother’s death.

    The Times newspaper reported that the results of toxicology tests would be revealed by Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham on Thursday at an inquest hearing in Gravesend, Kent.

    was wondering why the results took so long.

    She had two kids, surely those kids deserved better.

    who'd have imagined she was a smack head like her mum and dad?



    What was she famous for exactly? What great talent did she have? It certainly was not modelling as let's face it, she was minging.

    She was born to the man who made (suspiciously) stonking amounts of money from "I don't like mondays" and some bint who sold to the tabloids the serialisation of her boob job. She got gifted a job, writing crap, for a tittle tattle fashion rag, which then, under the gift that was daddy-poos, got some other gigs as well. Giving instruction to young impressionable ladies (who are mostly daft as a cut cat anyway) in her rags, whilst all the while she was an attention whore, high as a kite on caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, crack cocaine, slippy-flippy's, jelly stingers, trick sticks, bing bangs or flying willards and somehow, the collective worlds media actually gives a toss that one day in a haze she dropped two rocks onto her spoon instead of one, and gave herself a one way trip to oblivion. Just like her mum did.

    She chased celebrity, and the only shame is that, as usual, this was also her downfall. Her dad should be ashamed he encouraged it.

    The only reason why there was need for a toxicoligy report and the long "did she,didn't she" was because who ever found her conspired to mislead the investigation by hiding her needles, scag, rubber band and spoon. Perhaps this is worthy of investigative reporting, finding out who was responsible for wasting police time?

    RIP

    I'm not sure people snort heroin.

    And anyway, the suggestion is that her mates cleaned the place up so the dealers (or suppliers) wouldn't get caught.

    perhaps the result took so long as she was supposed to be clean.

    Whats ironic she was involved in a few charities, the save the children and Bottletop are supposed to inspire children.

    Great role models they have in the UK.

    "Why are your fingerprints in her house?".

    "Because I'm her mate and I'm round there all the time".

    "Did you supply her heroin?".

    "No".

    "Next".

    Repeat ad nauseam.

    Exactly. Even if she had not died, it is always a resounding "what the hell are you playing at letting this bint near your charity?"

    A regular Miss Marple you are, then? More likely "so tell me about what happened after you found her body - you cleared up a bit before the cops came round? I can see you are also a junkie - did you take her shit? If you tell us the truth, we'll lock you up in a room with some cheesy watsits and a kilo of cia grade heroine?"


    ....anyway....the only news about this, is that this is news.

    Poor kid. Can't help but think that the daft attention-seeking names the Geldofs "bestowed" on their kids unnecessarily put them under the spotlight of media attention and ridicule. Charity starts at home, Sir Bob.

    What is it with the music business and drugs?

    I have known really great guitarists with massive potential that succumb to the evils of heroin and they died very young.

    Such a shame people who are involved in the industry think it's mandatory to take drugs.

    I truly believe that most musicians are born gifted and are influenced by other musicians and their music to write great tunes. Look at the Beatles, the Stones and many others who were influenced by others before them and this influence comes through clearly in the songs they wrote.

    I have also seen others who lose this gift due to the affects of drugs and alcohol.

    I must therefore feel that drug influenced songwriting is a myth.

    ^^ Agree - more talent is destroyed by it than created. Just imagine the music that some of these legends might have created had they not been doped up on crack cocaine, slippy-flippy's, jelly stingers, trick sticks, bing bangs or flying willards

    Peaches Geldof death: Police searching for person who supplied her heroin
    Friday 2 May 2014 8:08 am

    Detectives are investigating who supplied the heroin which played a part in the death of Peaches Geldof.

    A criminal inquiry has been launched after an inquest heard she took the class A drug before she died.

    The 25-year-old, who was found slumped on a bed at her £1million home, had heroin in her system, tests showed, in a tragic echo of her own mother’s death.

    Her 11-month-old son, Phaedra, was the only other person in the house at the time – just as her own sister, Tiger Lily, was at home when their mother, Paula Yates, died from a drugs overdose.

    Officers are now investigating who supplied the heroin and why there was no drugs paraphernalia in the house when emergency services arrived.

    A police spokesman said: ‘Kent Police can confirm an ongoing investigation into the supply of drugs in connection with the death of Peaches Geldof. There have been no arrests at this stage.’

    The death of the socialite and columnist at her home in Wrotham, Kent, on April 7 had remained unexplained until yesterday while police carried out forensic and toxicology tests.

    Det Chief Insp Paul Fotheringham told Peaches’ inquest: ‘Recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death.’

    Peaches had been her normal self in the days leading up to her death and ‘there was no cause for concern’, Mr Fotheringham said.

    The inquest was adjourned until July.
    Knowing the old bill, if I was that 11-month old son I'd get myself a lawyer.

    You can't tell. If they turn hypochondriac to stay alive they might not live anymore, and lose creativity. Look at Einstein, no musician of course but a celebrity. Never influenced by alohol or drugs, in fine health for 40 years after his relativity theories, but burned out. Still great ambitions, but no more results.

    yes some may prefer nicotine and alcohol.

    But a big fat spliff
    or a big fat spliff and a pint to go with the music.
    and then there's the shagging.

    Peaches Geldof died of heroin overdose, inquest rules



    The inquiry has heard heroin is "likely" to have played a role in her death.
    • Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, a coroner has ruled.


    The TV presenter had been a heroin addict and took the substitute drug methadone for two-and-a-half years before her death, the inquest heard.

    A police search found 6.9g of heroin in her house but there was no indication she had planned to take her own life.

    Her husband, musician Tom Cohen, told the hearing in Gravesend the 25-year-old had started using the drug again in February this year.

    He added he had witnessed her flushing drugs she had hidden in their home down the toilet.


    'Fatal range'

    Pathologist Peter Jerreat said puncture wounds were found on Geldof's body along her wrists and thumbs.

    Evidence of codeine, methadone and morphine were also found in her blood.

    He said the levels of heroin in her body were in a "fatal range".


    The funeral took place last month at the same church where Geldof's mother's funeral was held in 2000


    It is thought Geldof had given up heroin at the end of last November, and had returned to using the drug in February.

    The coroner said he believed she had lost the tolerance she had previously built up, therefore the purity of the heroin found in her house had a fatal impact.

    Mr Cohen, whom she married in 2012, found his wife slumped on the bed at their home in Wrotham in Kent after becoming concerned when she failed to answer the phone.

    He had been away for the weekend with the elder of their two sons, Astala, leaving Geldof at home with their 11-month old son, Phaedra.

    She was pronounced dead at the scene.

    At the time, police described the death as "sudden and unexplained".

    After the toxicology report was issued in May, the police launched a criminal inquiry "into the supply of drugs" in connection with her death.

    Geldof's mother, Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose at the age of 41.
