Police Officers Found Drug Paraphernalia In Peaches Geldof's Home At Time Of Death

British authorities have confirmed that drug paraphernalia was found at the home of Peaches Geldof when her body was discovered.

A post mortem examination of the 25 year-old, who was found dead at her Kent home on April 7th, came back as inconclusive.

Therefore a toxicology report was carried out and this determined Geldof had taken heroin in the days prior to her death.

"Forensic samples were obtained and sent for examination with the results concluding there was recent use of heroin and that the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death," British authorities said Thursday (May 1st).

Initially it was reported that the police, who treated her death as "unexplained and sudden," did not find any drug paraphernalia at the country home.

But Kent Police spokesman Paul Fotheringham confirmed these reports were wrong.

"Inaccurate reports have also been made suggesting that no drugs paraphernalia was found at the address, with suggestions that the scene had been 'tampered' with prior to police arrival," said Fotheringham in a press release on Friday (May 2rd).

Adding, "While no detail will be provided around specific items, to prevent further speculation I will confirm that contrary to rumor in the media my officers did seize drugs paraphernalia from the address on 7 April. The coroner has authorized the disclosure of this information."

Kent police are now investigating who supplied the TV personality with the legal drug, but did reiterate Geldof's husband, Thomas Cohen, was not a suspect in any way.

"I would like to make it clear that Thomas Cohen is not in any way under suspicion of any involvement in Peaches Geldof-Cohen's death," the release said.

The authorities also revealed Cohen left their South London home for a weekend visit to his parents' house, with the couple's two children, Astala, 2, and Phaedra, 1. However, is father, Keith Cohen, took Phaedra back to Peaches on the Sunday, and she was there when her mother died.
