“The dead bodies were so visible that almost no one could see what had happened to them.”
Eric Klinenberg, Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago

“After examining the body, pathologists determined that Laczko had died of artherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and heat stress.”
Eric Klinenberg, Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago

“Hundreds died alone behind locked doors and sealed windows that entombed them in suffocating private spaces where visitors came infrequently and the air was heavy and still. Among these victims, the bodies and belongings of roughly 170 people went unclaimed until the Public Administrators Office initiated an aggressive campaign to seek out relatives who had not noticed that a member of their family was missing. Even then, roughly one-third of the cases never moved beyond the public agency. The personal possessions of dozens of the heat wave victims, including Laczko, remain filed in cardboard boxes at the County Building to this day.”
Eric Klinenberg, Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago
