Possible heat related death in Delco

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Delaware County officials say an 81-year-old woman's death may have been partially attributed to the complications from the heat.

Eleanor Murray of Brookhaven was discovered inside her Forestview Road home back on July 24th.

She was described as being unresponsive; her home was said to be hot.

A subsequent external examination revealed she died from arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease associated with inanition with probable dehydration and exposure to a hot enclosed environment.
