An Indian-origin nurse, who died in a suspected suicide after being duped by two Australian RJs' prank call to a hospital treating a pregnant Kate Middleton, was found hanging, British media said on Wednesday. The autopsy report is slated to be released Thursday.

Jacintha Saldanha, 46, was staying in a block of nurses' flats, was found dead on Friday last at her staff accommodation, three days after she fell for a the prank call during Kate's stay at the King Edward VII Hospital in Central London, the media said.

Sky News said, "Initial official statements suggested that she was alive but unconscious when discovered, however it is now understood she was found dead."

Labour MP Keith Vaz, who met Jacintha's husband Benedict Barboza, said that the nurse had left a note for her family, which believes there are "unexplained" circumstances behind her death.

Without revealing the contents, Vaz said: "What the family needs are the full facts. There are unexplained circumstances. The family wants to know everything."

Barboza had desperately tried to track her down in the hours before her suspected suicide. According to Daily Mirror, Barboza had not heard from his wife for two days so he called one of her friends to check on her. But the friend did not revert.

Meanwhile, the Scotland yard said the cause of her death will not be released until a court hearing Thursday.
