Thieves break into Peaches Geldof’s family home

CALLOUS thieves have targeted Peaches Geldof’s family home twice since her sudden death last month, police revealed last night.

Kent Police are investigating two break-ins at the property in Wrotham where the mother-of-two, 25, was found dead on April 7.

The late daughter of Irish singer Bob Geldof shared the £1million house with her husband, Thomas Cohen, and their two children.

Officers said a lawnmower was taken during the first raid in mid-April, while thieves who broke in last Friday are believed to have left empty-handed.

In a statement, Kent Police said: "Police are investigating a burglary at an address in Fairseat Lane, Wrotham, on 9 May.

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

"Additionally, in mid-April a lawn mower was reported to have been taken from the grounds."

Mr Cohen found his wife slumped in her bed after he was unable to contact her the night before. An inquest later revealed that heroin use was “likely” to have played a role in the TV presenter’s death.

Earlier this month, police confirmed that drug paraphernalia had been discovered in her home after her death following initial reports that nothing had been found in an earlier police search.
