Jacintha Saldanha - the nurse who committed suicide after receiving a prank call from an Australian radio station regarding Kate Middleton’s stay at the hospital – was reportedly found “hanging by her neck by a scarf from a wardrobe door” by a colleague. She was discovered by a colleague in the hospital living quarters, according to the report revealed at Westminster Coroner’s Court in London.
Saldanha was found dead last Friday (December 7, 2012). She had left three notes, according to CNN. Two notes were left at the scene of the hanging and a third had been left with her belongings. The contents of the notes were not disclosed at the court hearing. There were also some injuries to the nurse’s wrist, according to the news report. Jacintha is survived by two teenage children and a husband. On December 4, 2012, she answered a prank call from an Australian radio station and put the call through to a nurse on the ward where Prince William’s wife, Kate Middleton, was being treated for acute pregnancy-related sickness.
Her body was formally identified by her husband, Benedict Barboza. Although there are no suspicious circumstances at this time, Detective Chief Inspector James Harman did reveal that police would be investigating her telephone calls and emails as well as speaking to her friends and co-workers about “what could have led to her death.”
