Heroin played a role in the death of Peaches Geldof, according to a senior British police official.

On Thursday, Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham spoke before an inquest hearing regarding the 25-year-old Geldof’s stunning death in London last month.

He reported that “recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death.”

Her mother, Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose at 41.

Geldof leaves behind two young sons and husband Tom Cohen.

An initial autopsy proved inconclusive.

The inquest was formally adjourned until July.
