Two days after her unexpected death at age 25, the questions surrounding the passing of British writer and TV host Peaches Geldof remain unanswered. Geldof, a mother of two young sons, was found unresponsive at a Wrotham, Kent, residence in England on Monday and pronounced dead a short time later.
According to Billboard, the initial autopsy results in the Geldof case were inconclusive and toxicology tests are underway in an effort to find out what killed the daughter of rocker/philanthropist Bob Geldof.
The autopsy failed to reveal any cause of death. Police don’t suspect foul play and have deemed the case “non-suspicious but unexplained.” Toxicology results will take several weeks.
“We are beyond pain,” Bob Geldof said on Monday. “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?”
“My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons,” husband Thomas Cohen said in a statement. “I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever.”
After leaving home at 16, Geldof worked as a model, wrote for Elle magazine, the Telegraph and the Guardian and appeared on TV shows including “OMG! with Peaches Geldof.” According to Billboard, in 2009 she said her years of drug-taking were behind her. Her mother, model/writer/TV presenter Paula Yates, died of a drug overdose in September 2000 when Peaches was 11.
