DALLAS (AP) - Triple-digit temperatures are being blamed in a
Texas woman's death, while authorities suspect a 4-year-old found
in her family's SUV also died of heat-related causes.
Authorities say 56-year-old Angela Rogers, whose body was found
Saturday, became disoriented after crashing an all-terrain vehicle
and then suffered dehydration. Meanwhile, authorities suspect heat
may have played a role in the death of the girl found dead in her
family's vehicle Monday night.
The Wichita Falls Times Record News reports Rogers' husband
reported her missing nearly four hours after she went riding Friday
near Graham, located 75 miles northwest of Fort Worth.
Johnson County Sheriff Bob Alford tells the Cleburne
Times-Review he's waiting on autopsy results expected Tuesday
before discussing more about the child's death near Cleburne, 50
miles southwest of Dallas.
