The cause of Peaches Geldof’s death will not be known until an autopsy is completed today.
Kent Police, first on the scene to find the 25-year-old’s body, released this statement: “Police were called at 1:35pm on April 7, 2014 to find an address near Wrotham following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman. A woman aged 25 was pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service. At this stage the death is being treated as an unexplained and sudden death. Officers are working to establish the circumstances around the death.”
Geldof posted a picture of herself and her late mother, Paula Yates, to Instagram just hours before her death.
Bob Geldof released a statement about his daughter’s death.
“Peaches has died. 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 it possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is. Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof” the statement said.
Peaches Geldof’s husband, Thomas Cohen, also released a statement. “My beloved wife, Peaches, was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever. Thomas, Astala and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen.”
