Peaches Geldof post-mortem to take place Wednesday

The 25-year-old journalist and socialite was found dead at her home in Kent on Monday April 7

The post-mortem examination on the body of Peaches Geldof is set to take place this Wednesday (April 9).

The journalist and socialite passed away yesterday (April 7) at the age of 25 in circumstances that police described as “unexplained” and “sudden”. Kent County Council have now confirmed details of the post-mortem, releasing a statement which added: “A decision on whether there needs to be an inquest depends upon the final results of the post mortem.” They said the results “could take some weeks”.

The daughter of Bob Geldof was found dead at her home in Kent. Her father, the Boomtown Rats frontman and co-founder of Live Aid, said: “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?”

Kent police yesterday confirmed they were called to an address near Wrotham, Kent following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman on Monday afternoon (April 7). The 25-year-old woman was later pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service.

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