(Newser) – The Australian DJs whose royal hoax led to the suicide of a nurse they duped might face criminal charges, reports Scotland Yard says it working with the Crown Protection Service to determine whether any laws were broken, without providing more details. Meanwhile, Australia's media watchdog is exploring whether the stunt by Michael Christian and Mel Greig violated "broadcast obligations," reports the BBC.
