(PCM) The worst has finally been confirmed in the April 2014 death of Peaches Geldof. Daughter of 80′s rocker and frontman of the Boomtown Rats, died of a heroin overdose. The coroner describes it as ‘accidental’ ruling out any foul play or intentional suicide.

The tragedy was one Peaches herself desperately tried to avoid. Sadly the legacy of Peaches mother Paula Yates death (Peaches was age 11) by a heroin overdose has overshadowed what was by most accounts a life of success. Peaches was a writer, TV executive and former model.

However Peaches lifestyle had its trappings starting with marriage to two musicians.

In 2008 it’s rumored she had to be revived from an overdose. Her modeling contract with Ultimo was canceled after they allegedly learned of a drug binge outing she participated in that resulted in leaked nude photos.

Peaches heroin addiction was thought to be under control. She had been on a road to recovery using drug substitutes under a doctor’s guidance. In what had thought to have been two years of clean recovery was undermined by what can only be described as a relapse.

Her husband, Thomas Cohen, is on record stating Peaches relapsed as early as February 2014 when he witnessed her flushing what he suspected was drugs down the toilet. It was her husband that found her body after her death.

The initial Internet response to her death was that Peaches was selfish for leaving children behind. What people who do not suffer any additions fail to understand is that addicts don’t try to take their lives and hurt others in the wake. They believe they are easing sadness in search of happiness. Peaches did not intentionally kill herself.

From the autopsy results, pathologist have learned Peaches was using a drug of higher purity content, similar to an alcohol of higher proof.

In addition to finding heroin in Geldof’s system there was also trace amounts of codeine, methadone and morphine.

Peaches leaves behind two children, sons Astala and Phaedra under the care of their father Thomas Cohen. She also leaves behind father,Bob Geldof, who is most recognized as the organizer of Live Aid, but to himself and adoring father.
