Coroner: Death Was Drug-Related
(London) -- A British coroner says Peaches Geldof's death was drug-related.  The 25-year-old was found dead at her home in southeast England in April. In May, tests found heroin in her system and puncture wounds on her arms. A detective said drug paraphernalia was found near Geldof's body. Authorities said they also found a bag of almost-pure heroin in her home.

Geldof was the daughter of musician and Band Aid founder Bob Geldof. Her mother, Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose in 2000.
