As her family searches for answers, more details have been released about the nurse’s death as doctors try to bring light to what caused her tragic demise.

A post-mortem examination of Jacintha Saldanha‘s body aims to bring her family closer to understanding her December 7 death.  The 46-year-old mother of two, involved with transferring a prank phone call to the hospital room of Kate Middleton and Prince William, reportedly left her family a suicide note before hanging herself in the hospital’s nurse’s quarters.

Jacintha Saldanha’s Autopsy Results To Be Released Soon

Medical examination of Jacintha’s body has now concluded, and the autopsy results will soon be released. Examiners hope to understand more about her death and officially rule the tragedy a suicide by hanging.

In regard to Jacintha’s case, Labour MP Keith Vaz, the spokesman who is representing the family says, “there are unexplained circumstances. The family want to know everything. All the facts, fully and clearly.”

Jacintha apparently had not told her husband, Benedict Barboza, or children anything about her involvement in the horrible prank phone call that is believed to have instigated her suicide. Her reported suicide note and medical discoveries from the body examination potentially offer the only details that her family hopes to learn about the tragedy in order to get some sort of closure. Mr. Vaz said: “They [the family] were in the dark about the hoax call. They hadn’t watched the news or seen anything about it. They didn’t know they were involved until after Jacintha’s death.”

Jacintha had worked at the King Edward VII Hospital for more than four years. She was widely respected and regarded by the hospital staff.
