LONDON - Police in London are listing as unexplained the death of a hospital nurse whose body was found early today.

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

The hospital where she worked says Jacintha Saldanha received a phone call from two Australian radio disc jockeys who were impersonating Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles and were asking for information about Charles' daughter-in-law, the former Kate Middleton, who was hospitalized with morning sickness.

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