British police will confirm on Thursday that Peaches Geldof, the 25-year-old daughter of Band Aid founder and musician Bob Geldof, died of a heroin overdose, The Times reported, without citing sources.

Geldof, a media and fashion personality in her own right and a mother of two boys, was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent, in southern England, on April 7.

After an inconclusive post-mortem examination into Geldof's death, Kent Police said investigations would continue but that the result of a toxicology report could take several weeks.

The Times said the result would be announced on Thursday afternoon by Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham during a brief hearing in Gravesend, Kent.

Kent Police could not be reached for comment.
