TMZ is reporting that the two Aussie DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, who pulled the phone prank on the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was staying have gone silent and "suspended themselves" after the nurse they fooled committed suicide.
The DJs had tricked nurse Jacintha Saldanha into connecting them to people treating Middleton by pretending to be Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth...those people then unintentionally spoke about Kate's condition on air.
Jacintha's body was discovered this morning and is being called an "obvious suicide."
The CEO says the DJs "are both deeply shocked over the tragedy" and released this statement:
"SCA and 2Day FM are deeply saddened by the tragic news of the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha from King Edward VII's Hospital...SCA and the hosts have decided that they will not return to their radio show until further notice out of respect for what can only be described as a tragedy."
Kate and Wills said via their rep that they are "deeply saddened" by the news and that "their thoughts and prayers are with Jacintha Saldanha's family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time."
The radio station has been in trouble in the past - the Kyle and Jackie O Show had previously pushed a 14 year old girl to admit that she was raped on air - and has advised the two DJs not to speak to the media.
RIP Jacintha Saldanha. Very sad that it went down like this...
