peaches geldof died from heroin overdose according to inquiry

It looks like the mystery surrounding the tragic and unexpected death of Peaches Geldof has finally been solved.

According to sources familiar with Thursday's inquest, the 25-year-old's death was the result of an overdose on heroin.

Ugh. That's just so shocking and sad, especially considering Peaches' mother Paula Yates overdosed on heroin and died in 2000.

So, it's come to this.

Guess, this answers all of are burning questions, like why Khloe Kardashian has yet to divorce Lamar Odom despite his huge apparent drug problem.

We're all about standing by your significant other during the rough times, but Lammy has made it pretty clear that KoKo isn't necessarily his number one priority right now.

And, now we know that Lamar's past issues with depression could trigger something even scarier.

We're hearing rumors that even though Khloe believes that a divorce is "inevitable," she's actually TOO AFRAID to file for divorce because she fears what could happen to Lamar - particularly, a lethal overdose.

Even though divorce papers have already been drawn up, she just doesn't have the guts to go through with it because of the consequences that could follow.

All we want is for Lamar to get help and to lead a healthy, happy life too, but Khloe, it's time to live for yourself.

Filed under: DrugsScience!

A new report has found that there are elevated death rates among drug addicts recently discharged from care.

The rates of suicides and overdose deaths were over ten times higher for those drug users who had just checked out of a hospital.

The rates were highest among those who had been out of the hospital less than a month, compared to those who had been out for over a year.

We guess the first month back must be the hardest.

If you have a troubled friend or family member, at least this study shows that you should really be supporting them the most in their first few weeks after leaving the hospital.

The report said:
