Peaches Geldof’s family home has been broken into twice since her death in April, it has been reported.
The journalist died aged 25 from a drugs overdose and her body was found in her Wrotham, Kent property by rocker husband Thomas Cohen, 21. It is believed that only one week later the house was burgled, with a red lawnmower going missing from the grounds.

The million-pound home, which has five bedrooms, is said to be currently unoccupied as Tom can”t face staying there since his spouse’s passing.
Last week police interrupted another break-in by thieves after dashing to the scene of the crime and preventing anything from being stolen.
“Police are investigating a burglary at an address in Wrotham, on 9 May,” a spokesperson from Kent police said on Monday.
“Officers were at the address within five minutes and no personal items are believed to have been stolen.
“Additionally, in mid-April a lawnmower was reported to have been taken from the grounds.”

Since an inquest found this month that heroin was likely to have played a part in Peaches’ death, Tom is believed to be selling the property they lived in with sons Astala, two, and Phaedra, one.
He reportedly plans on finding a place to stay closer to his parents who are situated in south east London. Meanwhile the S.C.U.M musician intends to go ahead with their plan to open a shop together.
A source close to the couple explained that they had been struggling financially in recent months, a situation which was not helped by the break-up of his band in January 2013.
