LONDON (Reuters) - A post-mortem examination into the death of Peaches Geldof, the second daughter of Band Aid founder and musician Bob Geldof, has proved inconclusive "pending toxicology tests", British police said on Wednesday.
Geldof, 25, a media and fashion personality in her own right and a mother of two young children, was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent, in southern England, on Monday.
Kent police said they were treating it as a "non-suspicious but unexplained sudden death" but added investigations would continue following the inconclusive post-mortem. "The result of a toxicology report can take several weeks," police said in a statement.
When these results are known, a coroner will decide whether there needs to be an inquest, an official inquiry held in Britain when someone dies unexpectedly.
