So this begs the question...Who removed the evidence from the house before police/ambulance arrived? There was no drugs or drug paraphernalia found.

So very tragic. Like her mom, heroine was more important than her own kids. Please peeps don't start or experiment with this.

So sad. Unfortunately, she followed in her mom's footsteps and left behind a little boy who will now grow up without his mother.

I'll never understand addiction it takes everything away from you. I'm sure she loved her children and did take steps to withdraw from it, but from my understanding heroin is one of the drugs that feels like your best friend every time you shoot up. I am thankful that I don't have this addiction it must be the most helpless feelings when you can't kick it.

Cute and all, but if not for her status she would have been labeled nothing more than a junkie. There would be no caption, Remembering Peaches Geldof. She'd be just another name in the good riddance list.

what a loser. Her mother was a junkie and she follows in her footsteps and leaves her child without a mother. I feel no pity for this stupid woman, just her poor child you had a drug addict loser for a mother. Anyone who is dumb enough to think that sticking a needle in your body to get high deserves to die.

if she would have never made the initial choice to start using drugs and just go on to live the privileged life given to her..sigh,,sad story but result of her own choices, she CHOSE to cope with issues or whatever poor rich girl feelings with drugs, not wise, and not excusable and this is what happens, so sorry for these poor kids who will now grow up with pain, hopefully they will be taught better coping tools so not to follow in her sad footsteps
