PEACHES GELDOF DIED from a heroin overdose according to a report in tomorrow’s London Times.

A brief inquest hearing into the death of the 25-year old is due to take place tomorrow ahead of a full inquest in July.

The Times reports that tomorrow’s inquest will hear that Geldof had become “increasingly obsessed with the death of her mother, Paula Yates , from a heroin overdose in 2000″.

Geldof was 10-years old when her mother died at her home in Notting Hill in London.

In her final tweet before her death on 7 April, Geldof had tweeted a picture of herself as a child alongside her mother along with the words ”Me and my mum”.

The body of the 25-year-old mother of two was found at her home in Kent last month and and a post-mortem into her death proved inconclusive.

Tomorrow’s hearing is expected to last just ten minutes where the coroner is expected to outline the result of toxicology reports and the cause of her death.

The Times report also states that “police discovered no evidence of drugs paraphernalia in the house, leading to speculation that items may have been removed before the property was searched”.

Police have previously stated that her death is being treated as a “non-suspicious, unexplained sudden death”.
