Peaches GeldofOfficers searching Peaches Geldof’s house last night after her tragic death found no evidence of hard drugs, no suicide note, and no visible signs of injury, it has been claimed. The married mother of two young sons was found dead yesterday afternoon – just a few hours after she posted a picture of herself with her late mother Paula Yates on Instagram. Police found the 25-year-old’s body at home in Wrotham, Kent, at 1.35pm, and described the death as ‘sudden’ and ‘unexplained’. Last night, it emerged the coroner is probing the possibility model and writer Peaches died of natural causes, according to The Sun. Peaches Geldof heartbroken father Bob Geldof tonight led the tributes to his daughter who underwent a dramatic transformation from wild party child to earth mother over recent years. In a heartbreaking statement, the 62-year-old said: ‘Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. ‘

Bob Geldof 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. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof.’ Peaches Geldof often spoke of how she struggled to come to terms with her own mother’s death from a heroin overdose in 2000. Her last tweet was at 10.17am yesterday with a photograph of her and her late mother. She described ‘attachment parenting’ as responding to a baby’s needs and building bonds through closeness and trust. And she said she received a great deal of help from Sue Cohen, mother of her husband, Tom. ‘Becoming a mother was like becoming me, finally,’ she said.

Peaches Geldof  images‘After years of struggling to know myself, feeling lost at sea, rudderless and troubled, having babies through which to correct the multiple mistakes of my own traumatic childhood was beyond healing. ‘I felt finally anchored in place, with lives that literally depend on me, and I am not about to let them down, not for anyone or anything.’ She had admitted she never really got over her parents’ very public divorce in 1996, which became notoriously bitter, or her mother Paula’s death just four years later in 2000. She said: ‘I remember the day my mother died, and it’s still hard to talk about it. I just blocked it out. I went to school the next day because my father’s mentality was “keep calm and carry on”. ‘So we all went to school and tried to act as if nothing had happened. But it had happened. I didn’t grieve. I didn’t cry at her funeral. I couldn’t express anything because I was just numb to it all. I didn’t start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16.’

Peaches Geldof with fatherPeaches Geldof was just six years old when Paula left the Boomtown Rats star for INXS singer Michael Hutchence. Talking to Elle magazine two years ago, she revealed the drastic change in her mother after the break-up. She told the magazine: ‘The transition of my mother who was amazing, who wrote books on parenting, who gave us this idyllic childhood in Kent; and who then turned into this heartbroken shell of a woman who was just medicating to get through the day. ‘On top of that, there was my father who was very embittered and depressed about it and for us children, an environment that was impossible, veering between a week with my mother that was complete chaos, and then with my father, which was almost Dickensian – homework, dinner, bed – because he was trying in his own way to combat what was going on at my mother’s.’ Paranormal activity is clearly an interest to Peaches Geldof who went on her own ghost hunting expedition with BBC Radio 1’s Aled Jones for her short-lived TV series OMG! With Peaches Geldof.

The book is based on the musician, who died in 2003 of stab wounds following a battle with drug addiction. Following his death a coroner could not say conclusively whether the wounds were self-inflicted and his fans have contested the circtumstances of his death ever since. Drug allegations dogged Peaches throughout her teens and early twenties.

Freddy McConnel had been found dead at his flat in London just two weeks earlier. The inquest heard how just a few months before his death, he wrote: ‘Peaches is coming over later and I am going to inject for the first time. Perhaps I will die. I hope I don’t.’ Freddy had formed a friendship with the then 22-year-old Peaches in the months before his death.

Two months later, she was treated by paramedics after an overdose and was believed to have stopped breathing for several minutes until she was revived. In August 2008, she admitted she took drugs, but insisted: ‘It’s something people go through in their lives, especially growing up in London.’ She later said the memory of her mother’s overdose stop her from ‘spiralling out of control’. She insisted she did not go to his flat on the night recorded in his diary.

Two beautiful children. RIP Peaches.’ Elsewhere former Made In Chelsea star wrote: ‘So sad and shocked to hear peaches Geldof has died.’ She made her name as a television presenter, hosting programmes such as the Big Breakfast and The Tube. She met Mr Hutchence in 1985 during a TV interview  the lead singer of rock band INXS. On the morning of 22 November 1997, Hutchence was found dead in his hotel room in Sydney. Miss Yates, who was in London at the time, was informed of the tragic death by her friend Belinda Brewin. The couple’s daughter was placed in Geldof’s custody with her half-sisters. Following her death coroner, Paul Knapman, said the amount she snorted would not have killed an addict, but as an ‘unsophisticated taker of heroin’, Miss Yates had no tolerance to the drug. -Dailymail
