Frigid temperatures have claimed the life of an elderly Kentucky woman.

Boyd County Sheriff's deputies say 83 year-old Ann Jones Riffe was found dead in her neighbor's driveway this morning.

Deputies say sometime overnight Riffe left her house on Hickory Court in Summit, and was not dressed properly for the cold weather.

Authorities say it appears she walked to her neighbor's driveway, fell, and died in the cold.

Riffe's neighbor came outside to get his newspaper around 7 this morning and that's when he found Riffe's body.

Authorities say Riffe had injuries on her body, but there is no indication of foul play.
