LONDON (AP) - Police in London are listing as unexplained the death of a hospital nurse whose body was found early today.
The nurse was a victim of a high-profile hoax earlier this week.
The hospital where she worked says Jacintha Saldanha received a phone call from two Australian radio disc jockeys who were impersonating Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles and were asking for information about Charles' daughter-in-law, the former Kate Middleton, who was hospitalized with morning sickness.
The hospital says Saldanha transferred the call to the nurse who was caring for the duchess, and who provided the callers with information on her condition.
LONDON (AP) - King Edward VII hospital says a nurse involved in a prank telephone call to elicit information about the Duchess of Cambridge has died.
The hospital said Friday that Jacintha Saldanha had been a victim of the call made by two Australian radio disc jockeys. They did not immediately say what role she played in the call.
Saldanha was found dead early Friday. Police say her death is unexplained.
The Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, had been in the hospital for acute morning sickness. The prank phone call took place early Tuesday and the two radio personalities apologized the following day.
