MILWAUKEE COUNTY -- The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office confirms they are investigating the death of a 28-year-old Milwaukee man that may be heat related. 

The medical examiner's office says the man was pronounced dead at 7:08 a.m. on August 28th at a residence on the 5300 block of N. 66th St.

We're told the 28-year-old man had a core body temperature of 104 degrees.

Temperatures climbed into the 90's Tuesday, but neighbors of the man are suspicious that someone his age could succumb to heat.

A friend of the man said that it's especially suprising because his home had air conditioning.

Some neighbors' said that the man's family believes that his death might be related to his asthma.
