Jacintha Saldanha's official cause of death has been confirmed.

The nurse found dead Friday, three days after her unwitting involvement in a Kate Middleton prank call, was found hanged in an apparent suicide, an inquest heard Thursday, per the BBC.

"There was also injuries to her wrist," an official told the court. "The London Ambulance Service was called to the scene. At this time there are no suspicious circumstances."

The court was told two notes were found in Saldanha's room and another was found among her possessions.

Australian Communications and Media Authority have launched an official investigation into 2DayFM, the station that pranked King Edward VII hospital's nurses into revealing private information about Duchess Kate's condition.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this tragedy.
