Subscribe to Peaches Geldof alerts

Peaches Geldof, the journalist and model, died after taking heroin, an inquest in Gravesend, Kent has been told. Her body was found by her husband, Thomas Cohen, who found Peaches "slumped" on the edge of her bed in a spare room, with one leg dangling over the edge.

Mr Cohen called his mother before contacting emergency services, the hearing was told. Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fortheringham of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said a post-mortem examination was inconclusive.

"Recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death," he said, according to the Telegraph.

Mr Fotheringham said: "On Thursday April 3, 2014, Thomas Cohen went with his two sons to stay for the weekend at his parents' house in south-east London.

"This is a normal occurrence which enables Peaches and Thomas to complete work in their respective careers."

"It is believed that Peaches spent Saturday afternoon, into the evening, and Sunday morning at her home address alone.

"Throughout this period she maintained telephone contact with family and friends, including contact with Thomas's mother to arrange a family activity, but this was cancelled.

"Peaches maintained contact with family and friends throughout Sunday and at 5pm Thomas's father Keith Cohen took the youngest child, Phaedra, back to Wrotham and spent half an hour with Peaches before leaving the child with her."

At the time of her death, police discovered no evidence of drugs paraphernalia in the house, leading to speculation that items may have been removed before the property was searched. 

It is not known who supplied the young mother with the drugs. 

Miss Geldof's mother, Paula Yates, died from a heroin overdose in 2000. She was found dead at her home in Notting Hill having taken accidental overdose while alone with Peaches' sister, Tiger Lily, then aged four.

Hours before she was found dead, Miss Geldof posted a photograph her herself and her mother on Instagram.

It is one of life's great regrets that people are addicted to heroin et al and where those sadly taken from us may still be alive today if government allowed the introduction of the humane Vietnamese treatment that cures drug addiction that has no 'cold turkey' and no side effects whatsoever. But where it has to be said that because this would replace methadone (a more addictive substance than Heroin) over time, as it is a cure and not a maintenance regime in perpetuity, western governments including the UK deny it to the people. The problem is that the powerful pharmaceutical companies control what shall be behind powerful political doors. Don't believe me visit - Unfortunately behind these powerful closed doors of vast financial and economic power (the pharmaceutical industry is an annual $1 trillion-plus global industry) rises above human life itself and that is a fact based on international media reporting and their independent findings.
