Peaches Geldof Died in Front of Infant Son, Report Claims

by at .  Updated at .

A recent autopsy provided little information about the cause of the tragic death of Peaches Geldof at age 25.

Family and friends will have to wait for a full toxicology report to find out what killed the socialite and mother of two, but in the meantime more distressing news has emerged about Geldof's final moments.

Radar Online reports that Peaches' husband, Thomas Cohen discovered her body after spending a night elsewhere with their oldest son.

Sources say that 11-month-old Phaedra was playing near the body when Thomas arrived at the house.

"The hope is that Phaedra is so young he wasn't aware of what was going on," says a source close to the family. "It is devastating for Tom that he wasn't there, but it couldn't have been avoided."

Though horrific to imagine, friends of the Geldofs say it isn't surprising that Phaedra was with Peaches during her final moments, as Peaches was an advocate of "attachment parenting."

In other words, her children rarely left her side, even while she was sleeping. 

Peaches' family members issued a statement saying that they are "beyond pain" over the loss of the beloved wife and mother. 

Peaches found success at a young age as a model and UK media personality, but had settled into a quiet, domestic life in recent years.
