Peaches Geldof, Paula Yates, and Heroin

Like mother, like daughter.

From FOX News:

Toxicology reports have revealed that model and TV personality Peaches Geldof, the daughter of Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof, died of a heroin overdose last month, according to a published report.

The Times of London said that the toxicology results will be given Thursday at an inquest into the 25-year-old's sudden death.

The Times report claimed that Peaches had become increasingly "obsessed" with the death of her mother, Paula Yates. Yates, a television writer and presenter, was found dead at her home in the Notting Hill section of London in September 2000 at the age of 41. At the time, a coroner ruled that Yates had died of an accidental heroin overdose.

Similarly, Peaches Geldof was found dead at her country home in Wrotham, Kent, England on April 7. Police described her death as "non-suspicious" and a post-mortem examination was deemed inconclusive. Police found no evidence of drugs at the house, but the Times report claims that items may have been removed before authorities searched the property.
This is so sad.

Peaches was the mother of two sons. Her boys are so young, even the firstborn likely won't remember the time he spent with her.

Why would she make such a terrible choice?

Why would she risk following in her mom's footsteps?

So very sad.

The things you obsess over continue to amaze me.
