Post-Mortem Following Peaches Geldof’s Death Proves “Inconclusive”

Police are awaiting the results of toxicology analysis, which can take weeks.

LONDON — A post-mortem held Wednesday following the death of Peaches Geldof has “proved inconclusive, pending the result of a toxicology analysis,” Kent County Council said in a statement today.

The council said that the results of a toxicology report can take several weeks.

In the statement, the council re-iterated that Geldof’s death is being treated as “a non-suspicious, unexplained sudden death.” As reported, Geldof, the daughter of Bob Geldof and his late wife Paula Yates, was pronounced dead when police were called to her home in Wrotham, Kent on Monday afternoon. Police had been called following a report of concern for Geldof’s welfare.

Police officers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding Geldof’s death in order to compile a report for the coroner. A decision on whether an inquest into Geldof’s death will take place “depends on the final results of the post-mortem,” Kent County Council said.
