Peaches Geldof: Police End Hunt For Drug Dealer, As Inquiry Into Her Death Closes

The identity of the drug dealer who supplied Peaches Geldof with heroin she died after taking, may never be found, as police have now closed the investigation into her death.


In a new statement, Kent Police have explained that they have "exhausted all lines of inquiry" trying to find the supplier of the class A drug, after the mum-of-two was found dead at her home in April last year.

BBC News report that the case will only be reviewed again if new information comes to light.

Detective Superintendent Paul Fotheringham states: “I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to Peaches' family who have supported our inquiries during what has been a difficult time."

Peaches had a long battle with heroin addiction, and police found of 6.9g of the drug when they searched her family home following her death.

She had been taking substitute drug methadone in the two years before she died, but at an inquest into her death last year, her husband Thomas Cohen said that she begun taking the drug again in February 2014.

Peaches’ mother Paula Yates also died from a heroin overdose in 2000, aged just 41, when Peaches was 11-years-old.
