The coroner has ruled: Peaches Geldof officially died from a heroin overdose after relapsing.

The model and TV personality took a fatal dose of high-purity heroin shortly before she was found dead at her home in Kent on April 7.

Peaches—daughter of Live Aid organizer and ex-Boomtown Rats frontman, Bob Geldof—was a recovering heroin addict and had been taking methadone for more than two years in her bid to stay clean, but her husband, Thomas Cohen, said that she had started using heroin again in February.

He added that on several occasions he had seen her flushing drugs down the toilet and that she used their loft as a hiding place for her “works.”

Police also found heroin and syringes in the house. A forensic scientist said the drug had a purity of 61 percent, far higher than the average percentage of street drugs.

As Popdust previously reported, at the time of her death Peaches was at home alone with her 1-year-old son, Phaedra. Cohen discovered his wife's body after he returned home following a weekend away with their 2-year-old son, Astala.

A pathologist revealed that Geldof's blood contained a high level of heroin, along with traces of codeine, methadone and morphine. There were puncture marks on her arms and legs.

Geldof's mother, Paula Yates, sadly also died of a heroin overdose, when Peaches was 11.

"It's said that the death of Peaches Geldof-Cohen is history repeating itself, but this is not entirely so," the coroner said.

"By November last year she had ceased to take heroin as a result of the considerable treatment and counseling that she had received.

"This was a significant achievement for her, but for reasons we will never know prior to her death she returned to taking heroin."

If there is a hell, whoever broke into Peaches Geldof's home - twice - is going straight there.

Peaches died on April 7 of a suspected heroin overdose, and her Wrotham, Kent property has been robbed twice since then. The last time was on Friday and the thieves left empty-handed, but stole a lawnmower on the first attempt, police confirm.

Peaches was married to musician Thomas Cohen, with whom she had two sons – Astala, one, and Phaedra, who turned one on April 24. The funeral was held at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in the village of Davington, near Faversham in Kent.

Whoever broke into her house, twice - we hope it was worth it, you vile, horrid scum.

In February 2011, gifted teenager Freddy McConnel, eighteen, took a fatal dose of heroin, provided to him by Peaches Geldof, according to Freddy's journal.

Freddy's father, composer James McConnel, has published an essay in The London Evening Standard, in response to questions about his reaction to Geldof's tragic death.

McConnel recalls finding his son's journal entry, and then receiving a phone call from Peaches, who was worried about being blamed for Freddy's overdose. He was angry at the time, he says, but has come to understand that addiction is the real culprit.

McConnel goes on to say that he feels tremendous sympathy for Bob Geldof, whose public expression of grief resonates strongly with his own experience.

Addiction is an insidious evil that friends and family can be eager to deny and ignore. Clearly, both fathers were helpless to save their privileged children from heroin's grip. Both wanted to believe that their children's drug problems were in the past. Both are devastated by the loss of a beloved child.

McConnel notes his wife's belief that Freddy and Peaches are together now. She mourns for them both, aware that it only takes a moment of weakness to give in to heroin's deadly pull.

Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, an official inquest will be told on Thursday.

The daughter of Bob Geldof was found dead at her home in Kent last month, with cause of death being unknown. No drug paraphernalia was found in in the house, leading to speculation that someone removed items before the property was searched.

Peaches was married to musician Thomas Cohen, with whom she had two sons – Astala, one, and Phaedra, who turned one on April 24. The funeral was held at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in the village of Davington, near Faversham in Kent.

This is the same church where Peaches’ mother Paula Yates, who also died of an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, was laid to rest.

Friends and family of Peaches Geldof gathered today to say goodbye to the late television presenter and model.

The funeral was held at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in the village of Davington, near Faversham in Kent. This is the same church where Peaches' mother Paula Yates was laid to rest, and where Peaches married husband Tom Cohen in 2012.

A number of high-profile people came to pay their last respects, including Sarah, Duchess of York, Kate Moss and Jamie Hince, Jools Holland, Bill Wyman, Mariella Frostrup, Jo Wood, Alexa Chung, Johnny Borrell, Eliza Doolittle, and Jaime Winstone.

Peaches' coffin was a painted sky blue, with pictures of her family, friends, clouds and flowers. Sir Bob Geldof led the tributes to his daughter, whom he called the "wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us".

Peaches passed away of unknown causes on April 7, 2014. She left behind two children - sons Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra.

Popdust reported yesterday that 25-year-old British socialite Peaches Geldof tragically died in her home in Kent, UK. Although a coroner's report won't officially be released for a few days, new details have surfaced.

According to the Daily Mail, the mother-of-two left no suicide note and there was no evidence of any heavy drugs; it's possible that Geldof died of natural causes.

"The death is being treated as a non-suspicious, but unexplained, sudden death," according to a Kent Police spokesman.

Our thoughts are with her family.
