Peaches Geldof has died of a heroin overdose similar to the tragic death of her mother, an inquest will be told today.

The 25-year-old daughter of Sir Bob Geldof was found dead at her country home earlier this month.

The death was described as a “non-suspicious” and “sudden and unexplained” by police.

Her 11-month-old son was believed to have been in the home with Peaches when she died, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

Other reports say that police discovered no evidence of drug paraphernalia in the house.

The model and TV presenter’s mother Paula Yates also died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41.

She too was alone with her young daughter with Michael Hutchence, Tiger Lily, aged four at the time.

A post mortem report days after Peaches died proved inconclusive and samples of her blood and tissue were sent off to a laboratory to be tested for any possible toxins.

It is understood those results will now be returned to North West Kent Coroner Roger Hatch who will open an inquest into Peaches’ death.

The hearing is only expected to last for 10 minutes.

Peaches’ dead body was found on April 7 at the home she shared in Wrotham, Kent, with her husband Tom Cohen, and their two young sons, Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra.
