“Just one more thing”…Columbo leaves over $5m

Columbo star Peter Falk left more than $5 million in his will when he died last month, it’s been revealed.

The bulk of his money went to his widow Shera, who he had been married to for 33 years.

She was at his bedside in their Beverly Hills mansion when he died from Alzheimer’s disease.

The actor also left more than $500, 000 to his two adopted daughters, Catherine and Jackie from his first marriage.

Best known as scruffy detective Columbo, the 83 year-old had battled dementia and Alzheimer’s for about three years.

He became a household name in the 1970’s as the cigar-chomping, shabby raincoat-wearing LA cop, whose trademark interrogation line was, “Just one more thing”.

The role brought him four Emmys, but Falk, who lost an eye to cancer at the age of three, also appeared in more than 40 movies.

But if there’s any of you out there who haven’t seen a  “Columbo”, then I advise you to watch one. It’s a detective investigation with a difference and…yes, it might be slightly dated, but it’s more entertaining than most other cop programmes.
