Why Peaches Geldof’s heroin dealer will probably never be caught

by

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."
