London hoax victim found dead

Posted:

LONDON (WKOW) -- London police are listing the death of a hospital nurse, whose body was found early Friday, as unexplained.

The nurse was actually victim of a high-profile hoax earlier this week. 

The hospital where she worked says Jacintha Saldanha received a phone call from, who she thought, were Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles.  In actuality, they were two Australian radio disc jockeys impersonating the royals.  The pair were seeking information about Kate Middleton, who was hospitalized there with morning sickness.

Saldanha transferred the call to the nurse caring for the duchess, and who provided callers with information on her condition.
