The result of a post mortem on the nurse who apparently killed herself after being duped by two Australian DJ hoax callers will be released at the inquest into her death tomorrow, Scotland Yard has said.
The examination to establish the cause of Jacintha Saldanha’s death began yesterday and has concluded but its result will not be officially announced until the hearing at Westminster Coroner’s Court on Thursday morning.
The family of the nurse are set to receive more than £300,000 from Southern Cross Austereo, the parent company of Sydney station 2Day FM, whose presenters were behind the prank call.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said the post mortem result “would be announced tomorrow at the inquest”.
The death is not being treated as suspicious and the inquest is expected to be opened and adjourned as inquiries are continuing.
