Mystery continued to surround the death of Sir Bob Geldof’s daughter Peaches today, amid reports that no drugs or suicide note were found at the scene where her body was found.
Former singer Sir Bob – who became internationally famous for organizing the Live Aid concerts – meanwhile described his deep sorrow after the 25-year-old mum of two’s body was found at her home in Wrotham, Kent, UK.
Peaches, who had been through previous brushes with drugs and the law, had recently tweeted a photo of herself as a child with her mum Paula Yates, who died from an accidental overdose at the age of 41.
The Sun newspaper in London claimed: “Officers searched the former wild child’s house but found no evidence of drugs or a suicide note. There were no visible signs of injury.
“Her death was being treated as ‘unexplained.’ At this early stage it seems the most likely cause of death is natural causes, such as a defective heart.”
The tragic news has caused shock in the UK. Peaches was married to musician Tom Cohen, 23. Sir Bob, who is best known in the States for his charity work raising funds for Africa, issued an emotional statement.
He said: “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. 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.”
The statement was signed by Sir Bob, his partner Jeanne, and Peaches’ sisters Fifi, 31, Pixie, 23, and Tiger, 17.
The tragedy makes you wonder just how much hurt can fate throw at the Geldof family. Our hearts go out to them.
