Woman Dies From Heat After AC Stolen...
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A 79-year-old Oak Cliff woman succumbs to the North Texas heat and dies in her home just two days after reporting to police that her central air conditioner had been stolen.

Dolores Grissom’s home sits on a corner with the air conditioning unit is completely exposed; only protected by a cage with a lock.

On July 14 Grissom reported that her $2,500 unit was stolen. On July 16 she was found dead. Just this week the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office completed their report that stated Grissom’s death was heat-related.

Grissom, who was buried last week, lived with her son and unfortunately this wasn’t the first time the home had been burglarized. On at least two other occasions, in previous years, the air condition was also the target of thieves.

The mother is so shaken by the incident she did not want her name revealed. She just wants to sound a warning to parents they need to check safety procedures at summer camps.

The mother said her son and another boy approached three teens during a recess at Camp Beverly Hills Club Monday afternoon offering a game of basketball, when one of the teenagers pulled a gun. Her son says the gunman told them not to move and fired the gun in the air. After asking for the shoes of one of the boys, the teens reportedly called them “suckers” and ran off.
