KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The Jackson County Medical Examiner's Office is investigating a suspected heat-related death.

The victim was a man born in 1982. Citing privacy laws, the Kansas City Health Department cannot release additional information on the man.

The new case is the seventh suspected heat-related death under investigation.

The medical examiner has confirmed a heat-related death from when temperatures soared in early May. That woman, said to be in her 60s, had health issues exacerbated by the heat.
