Mentally Ill Former BYU Student Dies in Milwaukee Heat Wave

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN -- Former BYU student Barbara Burroughs, 52, was discovered dead in her apartment July 24th, the fourth person to die in a heat wave that hit Milwaukee. Burroughs was diagnosed 30 years ago with chronic undifferentiated schizophrenia, which apparently led to a divorce from her husband at that time. Her death has led to criticism of the Milwaukee County Mental Health Division after her landlady, Carol Matthews, a certified nurse's assistant, was told by a social service caseworker not to be so intrusive. Matthews was frustrated and angry with herself and the caseworker for making her second-guess her inclinations. "She didn't need to die," said Matthews, fighting back tears.
