Peaches Geldof death: Thomas Cohen 'not under suspicion' as police reveal drug paraphernalia was found at home
Police have confirmed they did find drugs paraphernalia at Ms Geldof's home
Police have confirmed they did find drugs paraphernalia at the home of Peaches Geldof after an inquest revealed heroin was likely to have played a role in her death.
Ms Geldof’s husband Thomas Cohen “is not in any way under suspicion of any involvement in her death or their concurrent investigation into the supply of drugs”, Kent Police said.
Ms Geldof, a journalist, presenter and model, and a mother of two boys, was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent, on 7 April.
The socialite was found to have levels of heroin in her bloodstream that was 'likely' to have led to her sudden passing, an inquest heard.
Mr Cohen "has not been arrested or interviewed under caution and there is no plan to do so", Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham said in a statement, which came following recent media speculation.
"The only statement he has provided related to his discovery of Peaches body, which is a standard requirement,” he continued.
“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.
“While no detail will be provided around specific items, to prevent further speculation I will confirm that contrary to rumour in the media my officers did seize drugs paraphernalia from the address on 7 April."

Mr Fotheringham said the investigation into the supply of drugs remains live.
Ms Geldof was found by Mr Cohen in a spare bedroom of their home, the inquest heard. The singer had stayed at his parent's house for the night with their elder son and he had become concerned after not being able to contact his wife.
She was found slumped across the bed "with one leg hanging down to the floor and the other leg tucked underneath her," by her husband. It was apparent she was dead.
Shortly before her death, the 25-year-old had posted a photograph on Twitter of her as a child with her mother, who died at her London home of a heroin overdose aged 41 in 2000.
Ms Geldof reportedly had to be revived from an overdose in 2008 and had a history of drug taking.
In her final interview, she said that becoming a mother had been a “really healing process”.
“Before, I was not at peace with myself about it because I was just traumatised,” she said. “That’s why I was living a chaotic lifestyle. But now I have the kids I can heal the situation. It’s so good in every single way, really.”
Her father, Bob Geldof, said after she died that she had been “the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us”.
