Autopsy results on nurse in hoax due Thursday

Scotland Yard said the cause of Jacintha Saldanha's death will not be released until a Westminster Coroner's Court hearing.

LONDON — London police say the result of an autopsy on the nurse involved in a prank call for information about the former Kate Middleton's hospital stay will be revealed Thursday.

Scotland Yard said Wednesday the cause of Jacintha Saldanha's death will not be released until a Westminster Coroner's Court hearing.

Saldanha took the call when two Australian disc jockeys contacted the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for severe morning sickness. The DJs, who were impersonating Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, later broadcast the call.

Saldanha was found dead Friday. Although police have made no connection between Saldanha's death and the prank, people from London to Sydney have been making the assumption she died because of stress from the call.

MSN New Zealand reported earlier Wednesday that Saldanha had left a suicide note for her family but that its contents had not been revealed.
