The autopsy of model and socialite Peaches Geldof came back inconclusive on Wednesday. The 25-year-old daughter of musician and Live Aid organizer Bob Geldof died unexpectedly two days before from a "non-suspicious but unexplained and sudden" cause.

Speaking with the BBC, British police explained that, "Officers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death in order to compile a report for the coroner," upon receiving the report. They said it may be "several weeks" before toxicology tests come back to explain her death.

The police had originally been called to Geldof's home that she shared with her husband of two years, singer Thomas Cohen, and two daughters after receiving "a report of concern for the welfare of a woman." Geldof was pronounced dead shortly after they arrived.

Speculation as to the nature of her death has swirled, with many suspecting a drug relapse may be the culprit. Others, like TMZ, point out an appearance Geldof made just days before her death at a fashion event at Somerset House in which she was captured in a video and looked "on the thin side."

New York magazine dives into Geldof's history as a "poster girl for London partying," explaining more about her background.

U.S. audiences became familiar with Geldof in 2010, when a story about her "Heroin-Fueled One-Night Stand at Hollywood’s Scientology Center" went viral on social media and was later picked up by Gawker.

At the time, her father begged Peaches to go to rehab, "especially after what happened to her mum." Her mother, TV journalist Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose in 2000 at the age of 41.

Not long after the incident, it seemed Geldof was settling down. She divorced her then-husband, abandoned the party life in New York, and moved back to Europe.

There she met Cohen, who she soon married and had kids with.

Her role then became that of a mother in the public eye, and she was no longer associated with her old image. She and her family would soon move to Kent, an even quieter town, where she was recently found dead. The so far unexplained nature of her death at a young age has once again raised the specter of her troubled past.
