Tuesday, July 3, 2012
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City police are investigating the deaths of two homeless men who may be victims of the intense heat.
The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/N7tTZb) reports the body of a 63-year-old man was found Saturday inside a mobile home where the temperature was more than 115 degrees.
Firefighters found the man on his back just inside the mobile home around 5:30 p.m. Police say the home's air conditioning unit was not working and blew only hot air.
KMBC (http://bit.ly/N7teGZ) reports alcohol may have been involved in the death of a second homeless man whose body was found Monday behind a business where the man had been sleeping for about a month.
A man who works at the business says he was checking on a broken water line and found the body.
