Peaches Geldof post mortem to take place on Wednesday

A post mortem on Peaches Geldof will be carried out tomorrow (Wednesday, April 9).

The body of the 25-year-old has been transferred to Darent Valley Hospital, Dartford, where the examination will take place, Kent County Council said.

Her elder sister, Fifi Trixibelle, has paid tribute to the mother-of-two.

She posted a picture on Instagram today of the two of them together when they were young children and wrote: ”My beautiful baby sister…. Gone but never forgotten. I love you Peaches x.”

Peaches was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent, on Monday April 7 after officers were called ‘following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman’, a Kent Police spokesman said.

He added: “Officers were called to the 25-year-old’s home in Fairseat Lane, Wrotham at 1.35pm on Monday, 7 April 2014. Peaches was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The death is being treated as a non-suspicious, but an unexplained sudden death.

“Officers are working to establish the circumstances and will be compiling a report of their findings for the coroner.”

Peaches was a prolific tweeter and the final message she sent on Sunday was a picture of her as a child with her mother, with the message ‘me and my mum’.

She had two young sons with her second husband, musician Tom Cohen.

A coroner will open an investigation after the results of the initial post mortem have been received.

A decision on whether to hold an inquest will be made depending on the final results of the post mortem, which could take several weeks.
