Police investigate death of elderly couple inside Whitehaven home, may be heat-related
Scanner traffic first alerted us to the discovery of bodies inside a Whitehaven home. Memphis Police didn't suspect foul play from the start. The excessive heat became a potential contributing cause of death after it was determined that the air conditioning wasn't properly working. Frankly, I'm surprised we haven't seen more heat-related deaths this summer. I got some stats from the Shelby County Health Department in order to complete this story.
