In a tweet, the ME said the elderly female was found collapsed in her garage near the corner of 20th Street and Grange Avenue.
If her death was in fact due to cold weather, it would be the third one this season.
On Dec. 31, the ME investigated a cold weather death of a man in Riverwest.
Overnight Thursday, a man froze to death after allegedly fleeing the scene of a car accident last week.
