An inquest will reveal the cause of Peaches Geldof’s death next week.

The brief hearing will be held in Gravesend on Thursday. It will reveal details surrounding the death of the 25 year-old mother of two, which has been described as “unexplained” and “non-suspicious” by police.

BREAKING: Results Of Peaches Geldof Inquest Heard

In a hearing that is expected to last only 10 minutes, a senior police officer will read a statement before the coroner, Roger Hatch, reveals the cause of her death.

A full inquest is then likely to take place in late July.

Earlier this month, a post mortem examination was unable to explain the cause of her death.

The results of subsequent toxicology tests have not been released, but they are understood to have been returned to the coroner.

Ms Geldof, daughter of music legend Sir Bob Geldof, had two young children and was married to musician Tom Cohen.


She was found dead at her home in Kent a day after posting a picture of her and her mother online.

Her mother Paula Yates died from a heroin overdose in 2000 at the age of 41.

Earlier this week, Ms Geldof’s funeral was held in the same church as her mother’s, and was attended by stars including Kate Moss, Jools Holland and Nick Grimshaw.

Her father Sir Bob led tributes to his daughter, describing her as the “cleverest, wittiest and most bonkers” member of their family.
