Peaches Geldof was a heroin addict

Peaches Geldof died of an overdose of heroin, a coroner has ruled. The 25-year-old journalist had been receiving treatment for heroin addiction for the past two and half years, and had been taking the substitute drug methadone. She relapsed and began taking the class A drug again two months before she died, the inquest heard. The inquest was told that there was codeine, methadone and morphine in Geldof's blood, the latter coming from heroin, and that the levels were within the fatal range.
