This gets increasingly heartbreaking.

According to reports this morning, Thomas Cohen - who had spent a night away with eldest child Astala - asked a friend to check on her at their home in Wrotham, Kent, South East England, when his wife failed to answer her phone on Monday, and her body was found with 11-month-old Phaedra nearby.

A source told The Sun: "The hope is that Phaedra is so young he wasn't aware of what was going on. The most important thing is that he's OK. It is devastating for Tom that he wasn't there but it couldn't have been avoided."Phaedra was by her side most of the time, even when she was sleeping. At the very least, there can be some comfort that she wasn't by herself when she died."

Obviously this echos the death of Paula Yates in 2000. She was found with her daughter Tiger Lily, now 17, playing near her body. Tiger was 4 at the time.

Yesterday, Bob Geldof was seen visiting his daughter's home, where he was greeted by Tom's parents Keith and Susan. He reportedly left two hours later with some of Peaches' belongings.

Her body has now been released by coroners so plans for the funeral can be made. Her cause of death remains unexplained.
