Peaches Geldof's home sold

Peaches Geldof's home has been sold, after lying empty for over a year since her death.

The socialite died of a heroin overdose in 2014 at the property in Wrotham, Kent, where she lived with her rocker husband Thomas Cohen and their two sons, Astala, three and Phaedra, two.

According to the Sunday Mirror, it has recently been sold although there were no details on the buyer or how much money was paid.

People living nearby said that Thomas had not been back to the house "for a long time".

Sources added: "Whenever he needs something, he gets his mum to pick it up.

"He is haunted by what has happened and is constantly reminded of Peaches and the happy times."

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that police have halted the search for Peaches' drug dealer after "all lines of inquiry were exhausted".

During the investigation, the 27-year-old star's phone records were searched although no arrests were made.

Speaking about the case, Detective Superintendent Paul Fotheringham of Kent Police commented: "If further information or witnesses come forward, we will review the case."

Although her family was unaware of her drug habit, the inquiry into her death showed she had started using heroin in February 2014, having been taking the heroin substitute methadone for over two years prior to her death.

When her body was discovered, 6.9 grams of the substance was also found in the house.
