Mysterious Death at 25
– No Suicide Note or
Sign of Hard Drugs
Just one day after the shocking and tragic death of Peaches Geldof, 25, rocked the world, authorities are still looking for answers.
According to a report out of the U.K., there was no suicide note, no evidence of hard drugs and no visible signs of injury—adding to the mystery of her death.
The former wild child was found in Wrotham, Kent on Monday, April 7, and—for now—her death is not being treated as “suspicious.”
“At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden,” a spokesperson for Kent Police said. “They are now working to establish the circumstances surrounding the death.”
Peaches leaves behind her husband, London-based singer Tom Cohen and her two young children, Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 1.
Additionally, she’s outlived by sisters Fifi and Pixie and her father, musician Bob Geldof. The 62-year-old Nobel Peace Prize nominee released a statement expressing his grief.
“Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh,” the statement reads. “What a beautiful child. How is this 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.”
Her mother, Paula Yates, passed away in September 2000, when the late TV presenter was only 11 years old. It was later concluded that her death was the result of a drug and alcohol overdose.
Adding to the mystery of Peaches’ tragic death is her final tweet, which was an Instagram picture of her as a child with her own late mother, captioned, “my and my mum.”
