In 1989, rock star Bob Geldof, his wife, TV presenter Paula Yates, and their five-year-old daughter Fifi Trixiebelle, show off the new addition to their family, an as yet unnamed baby girl (later named Peaches), at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London. Peaches Geldof has died at the age of 25, the BBC reported tonight.

The final message Peaches Geldof sent was a picture of her as a child with her mother.

Peaches Geldof’s family home was reportedly hit by burglars two times since she died last month.

The 25-year-old TV star was found dead on April 7 at the Kent, England country house she shared with her husband Tom Cohen and their two sons.

And according to British newspaper The Mirror, the family residence has been the victim of two separate burglary incidents since Peaches’ passing last month.

Apparently robbers first went to the property a week after her demise and they left with a red lawnmower.

The outlet reports Peaches’ five-bedroom house was broken into the second time last Friday. Fortunately authorities responded to the illegal entry within minutes and the thieves didn’t take anything.

“Police are investigating a burglary at an address in Wrotham, on 9 May,” a spokesman for authorities told the publication.

“Officers were at the address within five minutes and no personal items are believed to have been stolen.

“Additionally, in mid-April a lawnmower was reported to have been taken from the grounds.”

An inquest into Peaches’ death was opened and adjourned earlier this month, with a new date set for July.

Although her autopsy provided inconclusive evidence on the cause of death, it was revealed during the inquest that heroin likely played a part in her demise.

Peaches’ passing echoes that of her mother Paula Yates, who died of an accidental heroin overdose when she was 11.

Peaches leaves behind husband Tom and their sons Astala, two, and Phaedra, one.
