A nurse at the hospital where Kate was treated for morning sickness was found dead, and suicide is suspected
(TMZ) UPDATE 8:30 AM PT -- TMZ reports cops are NOT planning on conducting a criminal investigation into the death at this point, and believe there was no foul play.
We're told a post-mortem examination (autopsy) is currently being scheduled and is expected to be conducted in the next few days.
Meanwhile, Kate and William's rep has issued a statement on behalf of the royals saying they are "deeply saddened" by the news adding, "Their thoughts and prayers are with Jacintha Saldanha’s family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time."
A nurse at the hospital where Kate Middleton was treated for morning sickness this week has been found dead, and suicide is suspected after she mistakenly transferred a prank radio call to Kate's hospital room.
According to law enforcement, the woman was found dead at an address near King Edward VII hospital, where she worked, around 9:30 AM this morning.
Paramedics were dispatched to the scene but were unable to revive her. Scotland Yard is treating the death as a possible suicide.
The woman, a nurse identified as Jacintha Saldanha, was the victim of a prank by an Australian radio station, which called King Edward VII hospital on Wednesday pretending to be the Queen of England (with a terrible accent) and asking to speak to Kate.
