Coroner: Peaches Geldof's Death Was Drug-Related

A British coroner says Peaches Geldof's death was drug-related.  The ruling was issued Monday, three months after the 25-year-old was found dead at her home in southeast England. 

In May, tests indicated there was heroin in her system and puncture wounds on her arms at the time of her death.  A detective had said drug paraphernalia was found near Geldof's body.  Authorities said they also found a bag of almost-pure heroin in her home. 

Geldof was the daughter of Boomtown Rats frontman and Band Aid founder Bob Geldof.  Her mother, Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose in 2000.
