Peaches Geldof Reportedly Died from a Heroin Overdose

Peaches Geldof‘s cause of death has reportedly been revealed to be from a heroin overdose, the BBC reports.

Det Ch Insp Paul Fotheringham, said in a statement, “Recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death.”

Sadly, this is all too familiar to Peaches‘ family as her mother Paula Yates also died from a heroin overdose back in 2000, something which reportedly haunted the young TV personality over the past decade.

The last thing that Peaches posted to her Instagram page, just a day before her death, was a photo of herself as a young child in the arms of her mother.

    Could be why she posted that photo last thing. A clue. My heart goes out to her family, children, husband, friends and everyone who knew her and never saw it coming. No one ever knows the weight of what one carries in private, in their hearts.

    This is so hard to believe, she seemed to be happy and to have it together with her family and her boys. So sad. I hope the father is clean at least…those poor boys..

    I’d be lying if I said I was surprised.

    I feel so sad for the young children she left behind. Wasn’t she alone with the 11 month year old at the time of her death? At least he will be too young to remember this as it would be terrifying for him.

    Any death is sad no matter how that life was lost but that been said, I don’t know who she is. It would be nice if the article would have said if she were an actress, a singer, a model?

    At present it is not known how often Peaches Geldof continued to use heroin given her appetite for heroin in earlier documented years and if that instead may have come to explain her rapid weight loss and sickly appearance in recent weeks prior to her death. Which is to say the young woman made sure to keep her use of heroin very well out of the public eye. What though remains of question is who removed drug paraphernalia prior to the initial arrival of cops ….. ???

    Holy Crap! Was not expecting that at all. I thought she had cleaned up her life. So sad.

    Peaches Geldof was the daughter of Sir Bob Geldof, a singer/songwriter and the man behind Band Aid amongst other things. She was a model, socialite and so on. Incredibly sad that she had the same fate as her mother.

    Ugh how terrible. She obviously never got over her mum’s death. I hope her husband is clean for the sake of their young boys.

    It’s hard for me to feel sorry for someone who brings about thier own death.

    I can’t understand how she could die of an overdose if no drugs or tracesof drugs. They should have find a needle near her at least…
