LONDON (AP) -- King Edward VII hospital says a nurse involved in a prank telephone call to elicit information about the Duchess of Cambridge has died.

The hospital said Friday that Jacintha Saldanha had been a victim of the call made by two Australian radio disc jockeys. They did not immediately say what role she played in the call.

Saldanha was found dead early Friday. Police say her death is unexplained.

The Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, had been in the hospital for acute morning sickness. The prank phone call took place early Tuesday and the two radio personalities apologized the following day.

    How long before somebody jumps on the Band Wagon and claims she committed suicide because of A PRANK TELEPHONE CALL? Somebody is surely going to think this is a 7 Figure Law Suit in the making. Not saying it's not possible, just it would be an extremely weak minded person, WITHOUT OTHER ISSUES as well. I mean were talking about an educated Nurse here. Tragic a life has been lost, but this really needs to be looked into, from ALL ANGLES.
