Peaches Geldof post-mortem is ‘inconclusive’

The 25 year-old daughter of Bob Geldof was found dead at her home earlier this week

A post-mortem into the death of Peaches Geldof has proved inconclusive, pending toxicology tests.

As the BBC report, the toxicology tests could take “several weeks” to come through, police said.

The 25-year-old journalist and socialite was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent on Monday (April 7). Police said at the time that her death was being treated as “non-suspicious but unexplained and sudden”.

The result of the post-mortem could lead to an inquest, Kent County Council has confirmed.

Her father Bob Geldof, the Boomtown Rats frontman and co-founder of Live Aid, said on Monday: “We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us… What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?”

Mother to Astala Geldof–Cohen (aged one) and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen (11 months old), Peaches Geldof married former SCUM frontman Thomas Cohen in 2012. She lost her own mother at age 11, when Paula Yates died in September 2000.
