KILLER HEAT / At least 41 deaths blamed on high temperatures -- isolated, lower-income elderly are most at risk

"Authorities arrived at the apartment of Eston 'Joe' Baker after midnight on Monday and found the front door slightly ajar, the electric fans on, the temperature 110 degrees inside and the 73-year-old Baker naked, splayed across the floor, dead.

Later that day, authorities were called back to the three-unit apartment building and made another grim discovery: Baker's next-door neighbor, Curtis Floray, 68, also was dead."

Just a reminder to keep checking on friends and relatives during these HOT times.
