LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Authorities in southern Kentucky say a man found dead on his own front porch probably froze to death.

Laurel County Sheriff's investigators say the 53-year-old man was found dead late Tuesday afternoon at his home in Corbin. His name wasn't immediately released.

An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of the man's death, but investigators say it appears to be from hypothermia. Police also say alcohol was involved.

High temperatures in the region Tuesday were in the upper 30s with lows in the mid-20s.
