Burglars Target Peaches Geldof's Home

Thieves have targeted the empty home of tragic socialite Peaches Geldof twice since her death last month (Apr14).

Geldof was found dead in her home in Kent, England by her husband Thomas Cohen, and he has been staying at his mother's house with their two sons Astala and Phaedra since the tragedy.

Their empty marital home has since fallen prey to heartless burglars who stole a lawnmower from the grounds just a week after Geldof died. Geldof's father, British rocker Bob Geldof, had hoped to restore the machinery in her memory as it is featured in one of the last photographs taken of the family.

A neighbour tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "I know a mobile lawnmower was taken. Bob wanted to keep it for sentimental reasons, but it was broken so he asked someone to do it up.

"I spoke to the mechanic but he said in the end they told him he couldn't repair it as it had been stolen. It's shocking to think someone would do that so soon after Peaches died."

Burglars struck again on Friday (09May14) and damaged surveillance cameras, alerting police to a potential break-in. When cops arrived five minutes later, the culprits had fled empty-handed.

A source tells the newspaper, "The house has been empty ever since Peaches died. The vultures who broke in clearly knew that and are preying on the bereaved and her family. It's a wicked thing to do given what Tom is going through.

"Whoever was responsible knew full well that there were cameras at the house and deliberately broke them before getting in."

A spokesperson for Kent Police confirmed the force is investigating both incidents.

Tests show Geldof died after taking heroin, and a full inquest to determine the cause of death is due to take place in July (14).
