MADISON, IL. (KMOX) – Officials are warning that a recent heat related death should serve as a warning to all, during that extended hot spell.

A developmentally disabled man who often collected aluminum cans in his neighborhood died of heat stroke.

Thats the conclusion by the Madison County Illinois Coroner. The body of 56 year old Darold Mays was found in an alleyway on Klein Avenue in Venice on June 27th.

Coroner Stephen Nonn says Mays had heart and lung disease which would make him more susceptible to heat related illness.
