An official coroner’s report has confirmed that heroin “played a role” in British TV presenter and model Peaches Geldof’s death.

Although an initial toxicology report was inconclusive, “forensic samples were obtained and sent for examination with the results concluding there was recent use of Heroin and that the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death,” Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham reported Thursday.

Geldof’s husband, musician Tom Cohen, found her body in their Kent-area home the morning of April 7. Her son, 1-year-old, Phaedra, was also in the house at the time of her death.

Geldof’s mother, Paula Yates, died from a heroin overdose in 2000.
