Post the sudden death of Peaches Geldof there has been too much that has been left to speculation. Police say a post-mortem on Peaches Geldof has proved inconclusive, and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine cause of death.
The twenty five year old daughter of musician and campaigner Bob Geldof was found dead at her home in Kent on Monday, April 07, 2014.
The toxicology tests could take several weeks to come through, in the meanwhile the police officers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death in order to compile a report for the coroner. Kent County Council has said it will make a decision on whether there needs to be an inquest based on the final results of the post-mortem.
In a statement, Peaches Geldof’s father Bob Geldof said: “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?”
Peaches Geldof’s elder sister, Fifi Trixibelle, also paid tribute with a post on Instagram that read: “My beautiful baby sister, gone but never forgotten. I love you Peaches.”
Peaches Geldof married singer Thomas Cohen in 2012 and both have two kids, Astala, who is twenty three months old and Phaedra, who is only eleven months old.
President Higgins, who was due to meet Bob Geldof this week during a state visit to the UK, said his thoughts were with the family.
“This is such a difficult cross to bear for any family and all of our thoughts are with Peaches’ family and friends at this time. Sabina and I were due to meet Bob Geldof while on the state visit and we are thinking of him at this time of immense loss,” he added.
Also among those to pay tribute was Michelle Mone, founder of underwear firm Ultimo, who employed Geldof as a brand ambassador.
Peaches Geldof’s last column for Mother And Baby Magazine was published posthumously on April 08, 2014.
“Right now, life is good,” she wrote. “And being a mum is the best part of it.”
