 British Police to say Peaches Geldof died of heroin overdose: Paper

British police will confirm on Thursday that Peaches Geldof, the 25-year-old daughter of Band Aid founder and musician Bob Geldof, died of a heroin overdose, The Times reported, without citing sources.

Geldof, a media and fashion personality in her own right and a mother of two boys, was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent, in southern England, on April 7.

After an inconclusive post-mortem examination into Geldof's death, Kent Police said investigations would continue but that the result of a toxicology report could take several weeks.

The Times said the result would be announced on Thursday afternoon by Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham during a brief hearing in Gravesend, Kent. Kent Police could not be reached for comment.

Peaches was only 11 when her mother, television presenter Paula Yates, died from a heroin overdose, aged 41.

Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, model Kate Moss and Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew, were among the mourners who attended Geldof's funeral in Davington, Kent last month.
