Heroin gear found around Bismarck's body

LONDON, July 4 (UPI) -- A coroner's inquest will be held in London into the death of the 44-year-old great-great grandson of Germany's Chancellor Otto von Bismarck.

Police and ambulance crews found the body of Gottfried von Bismarck in his $10 million flat in London's toney Chelsea district Monday afternoon, surrounded by drug paraphernalia, The Telegraph reported Wednesday.

Police were called when the real estate agent who is trying to sell the flat got phone calls from Bismarck family members who said they had been unable to reach him.

In 1986, a 22-year-old fellow student of Bismarck's at Christ Church, Oxford, died of a heroin overdose at a party Bismarck was giving. He was fined $150 for drug possession and denied knowing the woman had used heroin.

Last August, a 41-year-old man attending a party at Bismarck's flat fell from the rooftop terrace to his death after using cocaine, the report said.
