Peaches Geldof 'died from heroin overdose'

PEACHES Geldof died from a heroin overdose, it has been reported.

The TV star and mother of two was found dead at her country home earlier this month with police describing her death as 'non-suspicious'.

A post-mortem examination carried out at Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford proved inconclusive, prompting further investigations.

Samples of her blood and tissue were sent off to a laboratory for toxicology tests.

A 10 minute hearing is expected to take place tomorrow.

A statement released by a spokesperson for the coroner revealed that statement from a senior police officer will be heard and the coroner will release the cause of death.

The socialite’s funeral took place at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in the Kent village of Davington in Faversham on 21 April.

It was the same church her mother’s funeral – and her wedding to husband Thomas Cohen – had taken place.

Mourners wept as her sky blue coffin, which had been painted to show an image of Peaches together with her musician husband Tom Cohen, their two sons Astala, aged 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months, alongside their pets, was carried into the church.

Kate Moss, Jamie Hince, Alexa Chung, Nick Grimshaw, Bill Wyman, Jools Holland and the Duchess of York were among the famous faces that attended the service, as were Jo Wood, Eliza Doolittle, Johnny Borrell, Alan McGee, Mariella Frostrup and husband Jason McCue.
