The Associated Press reports that Saldanha was found Friday morning by a colleague at King Edward VII Hospital and a member of hospital security staff. According to the inquest, she was found hanging in her wardrobe by a scarf, although injuries were also found on her wrists. Three notes were found in the room and among her belongings, left for her husband and two children, and police are continuing to investigate the case.
This is the latest sad development in a story that began last week as an ill-advised prank call made by two Australian DJs posing as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. The DJs expressed their regret Monday in tearful television interviews, but have now been taken off the air and suspended indefinitely.
