Peaches Geldof cause of death: Full inquest could reveal whether she took her own life
The hearing will begin at 10am at Gravesend Old Town Hall
Peaches Geldof’s cause of death, and the circumstances surrounding her tragic passing, will finally be heard at a full inquest today.
The hearing will begin at 10am at Gravesend Old Town Hall.
The socialite, writer and TV presenter was found slumped on her bed by her husband, Thomas Cohen, at her home in Kent on 7 April. She was just 25. Her youngest son, Phaedra, had been found located in another room.
A preliminary hearing ruled that “recent levels of heroin could have played a role” in her death.
This was particularly tragic as her own mother, Paula Yates, had suffered a similar fate in 2000. She was found dead in her Notting Hill apartment after a Heroin overdose.
Geldof posted a childhood photograph of herself and her mother, whose death it was believed she never fully came to terms with, via her Instagram account shortly before she passed away.
The full inquest could be set to establish whether or not Geldof’s death was an accident, or whether she took her own life.
