Nurse who died after Kate Middleton hoax call was from India

Nurse who died after Kate Middleton hoax call was from India
London:  British police say that a nurse who was found dead days after she took a hoax call about the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge was originally from India.

Scotland Yard said Saturday that 46-year-old Jacintha Saldanha, who was found dead on Friday, had lived in Bristol in southwestern England for nine years.

Saldanha worked at the London hospital where Prince William's wife, Kate, was being treated for acute morning sickness. The nurse was duped by a prank call performed by two Australian DJs, who pretended to be Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles to ask about Kate's condition.

Police didn't release a cause of death, but said they didn't find anything suspicious. A coroner will make a determination on the cause next week, police said.
