    Peaches Geldof attends the World Premiere of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire', on Monday Nov.11, in Leicester Square, London. 'Catching Fire' is the second instalment in 'The Hunger Games' trilogy.

    An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday.

    Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday.

    Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks.

    Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host.

    She grew up in the glare of Britain's press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and in the shadow of her mother's death from a drug overdose when Peaches was 11.

    More recently she had married for a second time, to musician Tom Cohen, had two young sons and worked as a broadcaster and fashion writer. She said in 2009 that her drug-taking years were behind her.

    In a column for Mother and Baby magazine, published the day after her death, Geldof wrote that motherhood had made her "happier than ever."

    "I've achieved a sort of perfect balance," she wrote. "Right now life is good. And being a mum is the best part of it. "

    Police are treating her death as non-suspicious but unexplained. The force said detectives are investigating the circumstances and will hand their report to a coroner, who is likely to hold an inquest.

    In Britain, coroners usually hold inquests to determine the facts of unexplained, sudden or violent deaths.
