CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - The lingering hot and humid weather is blamed in the death of an elderly St. Louis County woman.

The county medical examiner’s office confirmed Tuesday that heat was to blame in the death of the woman. Her body was discovered last week in her home, but authorities did not release any additional details.

It was the second death blamed on the heat this summer in St. Louis County. Another woman died in June.

Much of Missouri is under an excessive heat warning or a heat advisory through Friday night. High temperatures this week are expected to reach 100 degrees at many locations by late this week.
