LONDON (AP) -- A coroner's officer says the nurse who took a hoax call about the Duchess of Cambridge was found hanging by the neck from a scarf on a wardrobe door in her room.

Lynda Martindill says Jacintha Saldanha was found by a colleague and a member of the security staff at London's King Edward VII hospital on Friday.

A police officer told a coroner's inquest that three notes were found in the room. There were no suspicious circumstances.

Coroner Fiona Wilcox opened and adjourned the inquest until March 26.
