    I have seen some jokes on this topic too.

    Finding 'humour' in such unfortunate circumstances is, I feel, distasteful at best.

    Her Twitter feed. I suggest you don't view this if you don't want to feel somewhat sad and distressed. https://twitter.com/peaches_g/

    She was posting about her family and child right up until yesterday. No matter how much people may not have liked her, this shows a very tragic side to the story.

    You know, I had no idea she was even married let alone a Mother of two. Will be interesting to find out how she died. Her Twitter feed isn't exactly filled with suicidal thoughts - it looks like the Twitter feed of every other young mum in my friends list 'Oh look, the kids doing stuff' - looks perfectly normal. We'll probably find out it was some sort of undiagnosed heart condition or blood clot or something. It would certainly be easier on her family than if there was foul play or drugs involved.

    We may find out that it was one of those unexplained things or an undiagnosed heart complaint. It is annoying me the way all the speculation is about her taking drugs etc when as far as I know there is no recent evidence to that effect. She seems to have been a very happy wife and mother. It is very very sad.

    The speculation may have become from two things, 1. Her mother died of an overdose so people assume she went the same way 2. While watching the Channel 4 news last night with my mum they said she had died of an overdose. Though apparently this was not the case and they may have got the wrong end of the stick.
    I really liked Peaches and the way she stuck up for herself against Katie was legendary, it's a sad, sad case and my love goes out to her Children and Husband!

    I think many will read between the lines and assume it is drugs. If you read the BBC item it is full of implications about overdoses and drugs. Sad that so many people need to know before it is official. Whatever the cause it's a sad thing to happen to her family.

    Why? It's just as valid to make jokes about this as it is to make jokes about everything else. It's just a question of knowing where you're making the jokes and to whom.

    If its the Daily Mail then yes. All this secondary grief like people knew her personally sickens me.
