5 suspected heat-related deaths in Milwaukee Co.



The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office released reports Monday which show five deaths last week could be heat related.

The reports say the deaths of three Milwaukee men, ages 42, 55 and 56, may be attributed to the heat, although final autopsy results are pending.

An 81-year-old Milwaukee woman found near her garage by a neighbor is also a suspected heat-related death, as is the death of a 67-year-old South Milwaukee man. All died on Friday following several days of temperatures hovering around 100.

Heat-related deaths were also reported in La Crosse, Lone Rock and Janesville. The death of an Onalaska man is also being investigated as possibly related to the heat.
