It has been reported today that police have now closed the search for the drug dealer responsible for selling heroin to Peaches Geldof. 

The daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates was just 25 when she overdosed, using a fatal amount of the Class-A substance.

The TV presenter and journalist had been on a methadone programme for two years leading up to her death in an attempt to kick her addiction.  

She was found dead back in April of last year in her home in Kent, along with syringes and heroin.

The police launched a search for her dealer when they discovered that the drug was unusually potent (more than twice the usual strength of that found on the street). However, more than a year on, investigators have come to no conclusion and the relevant file has been closed.

Authorities working on the case will, however, reopen it again if any new information surfaces. 

Mail Online reported that police had reason to believe that a well-known Essex gang had supplied Peaches with the drug while she was in London. The gang is known to seek out celebrity customers via nightclubs frequented by wealthy A-listers.

Detective Superintendent Paul ­Fotheringham, who led the probe, said: "Our investigation has exhausted all lines of enquiry and has now concluded.

"If further ­information or witnesses come forward we will review the case. I would like to pay tribute to Peaches’ family who have supported our enquiries during a difficult time."

Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, it is expected to be announced later today.

In a tragic echo of her mum Paula Yates’s death 14 years ago, toxicology tests will reportedly show at an inquest that the model and TV presenter died from an overdose of the drug.

The 25-year-old was found dead at the home she shared with husband Thomas Cohen and sons Phaedra, one, and Astala, two, in Kent, England, on April 7th.

North West Kent Coroner Roger Hatch will reportedly confirm the results of a toxicology test today, which found Peaches died as a direct result of the class-A drug, and the inquest will be immediately adjourned.

The news is sure to have come as a blow to Peaches’ father, Sir Bob Geldof, as her mother Paula Yates, 41, died of a heroin overdose in 2000, when Peaches was just 11.

Police discovered no evidence of drugs paraphernalia in the house, sparking speculation that a friend or family member may have removed evidence from the house before the paramedics arrived.

An autopsy carried out shortly after Peaches’ death proved inconclusive, so samples of her blood and tissue were sent off to a laboratory for further testing.

The hearing today is expected to last around 10 minutes and a full inquest into her death will take place in late July.

Peaches was laid to rest last week at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in Davington, Kent, where her dad delivered a heart-breaking eulogy.
