News of Peaches Geldof's untimely death age of 25 was enough of a tragedy, but today, autopsies uncover another, with reports that the former TV presenter and writer died of a heroin overdose.

The coroners reportedly found that Geldof died in the same way her mother Paula Yates did back in 2000—an event that haunted Peaches for the rest of her life. Reports say that Yates was watching Geldof's youngest sister, Tiger Lily, who was only four at the time. The Times of London says that Peaches had become increasingly "obsessed" with the death of her mother, making this discovery all the more tragic.

Authorities initially said that there was no drug paraphernalia found at Geldof's residence at the time they went to investigate a call of "concern for the welfare of a woman," but now it is believed that the items were removed before the house was searched.

Geldof's funeral took place last week at the same church her mother was laid to rest, just adding to the parallels of this sad situation.

Update: Kent police have come out to officially confirm in a statement that Geldof's "recent use of heroin" was "likely to have played a role in her death."
