Peaches Geldof's tragic heroin overdose death five years ago this month

By William Janes

Peaches Geldof would be 30 now if she had not died of a heroin overdose five years ago.

The daughter of Sir Bob was found dead at her Wrotham home on April 7, 2014.

Her mother, Paula Yates, also died from an overdose when the model was just 11-years-old.

An inquest revealed she was found slumped over in a bedroom along with drugs a syringe filled with a brown fluid which analysts confirmed contained heroin.

Her son was at the house at the time of her death.

The young mum had been battling addiction, weaning herself off methadone in November 2013.

However, the February before her death husband Tom Cohen found drugs related texts on her phone.

The anniversary comes days before an inquest into the death of a young mother found overdosed on a cocktail of alcohol and cocaine in a Maidstone flat.
