"Our investigation into the supply of drugs to Peaches Geldof-Cohen has exhausted all lines of inquiry and has now concluded," Detective Superintendent Paul Fotheringham of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate confirmed."If further information or witnesses come forward we will review the case, but I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to Peaches' family who have supported our inquiries during what has been a difficult time."In a heartbreaking interview just six months after Peaches' passed away, her father Sir Bob Geldof said he "blames himself" for her death. "You're the father who is responsible and clearly failed," he said.

The musician then added: "For anybody watching, who has a dead kid, and you're a parent. You go back, you go back, you go back, you go back, you go back, you go over, you go over. What could you have done? You do as much as you can."Sir Bob also said he had known about 25-year-old Peaches' heroin addiction and had tried to help her through it. "Of course I knew about it and we did talk about it," he said. "She was super bright. Too bright. A very errant mind that could focus intensely on a book which she would consume and just absorb it."But the rest was a franticness. She knew what life was supposed to be and, God bless her, she tried very hard to get there. And she didn't make it."
