British Model Peaches Geldof's Cause of Death Confirmed to Be Heroin Overdose

An inquest into the cause of death of model Peaches Geldof revealed that she died from a heroin overdose, USA Today reports.

Coroner Roger Hatch said earlier today that the 25-year-old British model took a fatal dose after trying to come off of the drug.

It was revealed that Peaches was an addict and had been on the substitute methadone for two and a half years. Her husband, Thomas Cohen, said she recently relapsed and hid drugs in the loft of their home.

Peaches is also survived by her two sons, Astala, 2, and Phaedra, 1.

Peaches was found dead in her home in early April.
