Peaches Geldof's home targeted by thieves twice since her death
Kent police say Ms Geldof's home was broken into for a second time on Friday
Peaches Geldof's home has been targeted by thieves twice since the TV presenter was found dead in April, Kent police have confirmed.
Detectives say they are investigating two break-ins at the property in Wrotham following the mother-of-two’s death on 7 April.
Officers said a lawnmower was taken in mid-April, while thieves who broke into the home during a second raid on Friday apparently left empty-handed.
In a statement, Kent Police said: "Police are investigating a burglary at an address in Fairseat Lane, Wrotham, on 9 May.
"Officers were at the address within five minutes and no personal items are believed to have been stolen.
"Additionally, in mid-April a lawn mower was reported (to police) to have been taken from the grounds."
The raids come after the home of late singer Amy Winehouse was also targeted shortly after her death in July 2011. Thieves took the wedding dress in which the Rehab songstress married Blake Fielder-Civil in 2006, as well as a cocktail dress she wore while appearing on the BBC's Later With Jools Holland.
Ms Geldof was found by her husband Thomas Cohen slumped on a bed in the spare bedroom of the home they shared. The socialite was found to have levels of heroin in her bloodstream that was 'likely' to have led to her sudden passing, an inquest heard.
Earlier this month, police confirmed drug paraphernalia had been discovered in her home after her death following media speculation nothing had been found when the home was initially searched.
An investigation into the supply of the drugs remains live.
Shortly before her death, the 25-year-old had posted a photograph on Twitter of her as a child with her mother, who died at her London home of a heroin overdose aged 41 in 2000.
