Police probe death of Peaches Geldof

Published:

LONDON -- British police say they are investigating the unexplained death of Peaches Geldof and will hand their findings to a coroner. Police said Tuesday that officers were investigating the "unexplained sudden death," but did not consider it suspicious.

A post-mortem will be performed in the next few days on 25-year-old Geldof, who was found dead at her home in Wrotham, southeast of London, on Monday.

The daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and TV presenter Paula Yates -- who died of a drug overdose in 2000 -- Peaches Geldof grew up in the glare of Britain's press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years.

More recently she married for a second time, to musician Tom Cohen, had two children and worked as a broadcaster and writer.
