La Jolla

An elderly woman who apparently slipped off a La Jolla cliff, plunging 80 feet to her death, has been identified as Elizabeth A. Verplanck, officials said.

Verplanck, 82, of the 7800 block of Torrey Lane of La Jolla, tumbled off the rain-slicked path at the 1500 block of Coast Walk Friday afternoon.

Verplanck, who carried no identification and was wearing jogging clothes, had been out for a stroll. Her body was found in a tide pool by three passers-by at 3:45 p.m.
