Police announced that the results of Peaches Geldof's autopsy are inconclusive. Toxicology tests will be done to try to find the cause of the 25-year-old's death. She was found dead in her home in Kent, England on Monday.

Police had been called to her home following, "a report of concern for the welfare of a woman."

Peaches was the daughter of singer/activist, Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter, Paula Yates. Yates died in 2000 of an accidental heroin overdose. Peaches was just 11 years old at the time.

She had two sisters, Fifi Trixiebelle and Pixie and one half sister, Tiger Lily, whose father was INXS singer, Michael Hutchence, who died of an accidental hanging in 1997.

Bob Geldof released a statement to the press saying, "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.

"Writing, 'was,' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. 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.

"Tom and her sons, Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken."

Born in 1989 as Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof, she began writing a column for Elle magazine at age 15. She left home at 16 and continued to write, contributing to the Daily Telegraph and The Guardian. She also was a TV presenter on ITVs' "OMG! with Peaches Geldof."

She also did some lingerie modeling and had just attended the launch for Tesco's F & F clothing line in London.

Peaches' husband, musician Thomas Cohen, released the following statement:

"My beloved wife, Peaches, was adored by myself and her two sons. I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever."

She married rock musician, Max Drummey, in 2008. The union came apart six months later in early 2009.

Peaches and Cohen were married in 2012 when their first son, Astala, was four months old.

Geldof's final tweet was posted on Sunday and linked to an Instagram picture of her as a baby with her mother. The caption read, "Me and my mum."

Her last column for Mother and Baby magazine was published posthumously on Tuesday. She wrote, "Right now, life is good. And, being a mum is the best part of it."
