Local authorities told the Associated Press that toxicology tests will be conducted to determine Geldof's cause of death, although it could take several weeks to complete.

The British TV and fashion personality was found dead at her home Monday in Wrotham, Kent, England. Local police told Us Weekly in a statement that the death was "being treated as an unexplained sudden death."

Authorities told the AP that Geldof's death was being treated as "as non-suspicious but unexplained." They added that detectives were in the process of investigating her death, and will then hand off their findings to a coroner. According to the AP, the coroner will likely hold an inquest, which is common in Britain, in the case of sudden, unexplained, or violent deaths.

Geldof, who most recently worked as a parenting columnist for U.K.'s Mother & Baby magazine, wrote in her final column that she was "happier than ever."

The publication released Geldof's haunting last column on Tuesday, April 8, with the "blessing of her family." In it, the reformed party girl shared how her two baby sons, Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, nearly 12 months, rescued her from "a life of wanton wanderlust," and a "haze of youth and no responsibilities."

Bob Geldof's daughter reflected how she would take her new life over "wine-soaked" dinners with "fair-weather" friends, anyday. "I've achieved a sort of perfect balance," she shared. "Right now life is good. And being a mum is the best part of it."
