Peaches Geldof’s autopsy results revealed

The results of an autopsy of Peaches Geldof, the daughter of renowned musician and activist Bob Geldof, were revealed by UK authorities on Wednesday following her sudden death on Monday.

The BBC reports police say a post-mortem the 25-year old proved inconclusive, and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine cause of death.

The toxicology tests could take "several weeks" to come through, according to police.

"Officers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death in order to compile a report for the coroner," they added in a statement.

Kent County Council has said it will make "a decision on whether there needs to be an inquest" based on the final results of the post-mortem.

Police were called to an address in Kent in the south of England around lunchtime on Monday, where they discovered Geldof, saying the death is currently being treated as "unexplained and sudden."

Her final tweet, posted on Sunday, linked to an Instagram picture of her, as a baby, in her mother's arms. The caption simply read: "Me and my mum."

Peaches mother, Paula Yates, died of an accidental drug overdose in September 2000.

"We are beyond pain," said Bob Geldof in a released statement. "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is."

Peaches was a journalist, television presenter and model.
