A toxicology report revealed that British model Peaches Geldof, daughter of Boomtown Rats singer and Live Aid organizer Sir Bob Geldof, died of a heroin overdose. Her death echoes that of her mother's, Paula Yates, who died in 2000 of an overdose when her daughter was just 11 years old.

Geldof, 25, was found dead in her home April 7, with no signs of drugs or foul play, reports Agence France-Presse via Yahoo News. An initial autopsy proved inconclusive as to the cause of death. Her infant son, Phaedra, was in the home when she died, and Geldof also leaves behind a husband, singer Thomas Cohen, as well as the nearly two year old son, Astala.

The 23-year-old Cohen was away from their home looking after Astala when he discovered that he could not reach his wife, and notified the police.

Geldof's funeral was held at the same church as her monther's, St. Mary Magdalene and St. Lawrence church in Davington in Kent, southern England. Notable attendants included model Kate Moss.

As a teen and young adult, Geldof said she was a "wild child" and described her one-time life as "wanton wanderlust . . . a haze of youth and no responsibilities."

Mainstream U.S. audiences likely became familiar with Geldof in 2010, when a story about her "Heroin-Fueled One-Night Stand at Hollywood’s Scientology Center" went viral on social media and was later picked up by Gawker.

After the story broke her father urged her to go to rehab. She soon enough divorced her then-husband, abandoned the party life in New York, and moved back to Europe.

There she met Cohen, and had two children. Geldof seemed to be settling down and embracing her role as a mother, many media sources reported.

She began writing for Mother and Child magazine, and her final column was published there on Tuesday with the consent of her family.

Geldof wrote that her children had "became her entire existence and saved me" from a life of "pure apathy."

"I had the perfect life — two beautiful babies who loved me more than anything. It was, and is, bliss. I'm happier than ever. Right now life is good. And being a mum is the best part of it."
