The nurse who handled a prank call by Australian radio shock jocks and revealed Kate Middleton’s patient information in the process has been found dead of an apparent suicide.

Jacintha Saldanha was found early this morning in her apartment in London not far from King Edward VII Hospital, where she had worked for four years.  She was declared dead at the scene when paramedics arrived. In Australia, shock jocks Mel Greig and Michael Christian of the Sydney station 2Day FM remained silent.   The station stated the DJ’s would remain off air “until further notice” of respect to Ms. Saldanha.

2Day FM, King Edward VII Hospital, and the Palace have all issued statements of regret over the loss of Ms. Saldanha.
