Police launch criminal investigation after heroin linked to Peaches Geldof death

Police have opened a criminal investigation after it was confirmed that heroin was "likely" to have played a role in Peaches Geldof's death.

The 25-year-old media personality, who was the daughter of Bob Geldof, was found dead on April 7 at an address in Kent.

An inquest took place on Thursday (May 1) and police confirmed that heroin may have played a part in her death.

They said reports "concluded recent use of heroin. At levels identified, likely to have played a role in her death".

Kent police have now confirmed that they are looking into the supply of the Class A drug in connection to Geldof's passing.

They said in a statement: "Kent Police can confirm an ongoing investigation into the supply of drugs in connection with the death of Peaches Geldof.

"There have been no arrests at this stage."

Geldof is survived by husband Thomas Cohen and sons Astala, one, and Phaedra, also one.

Her mother, Paula Yates, died in 2000 as the result of an accidental heroin overdose.
