Actor Andy Griffith, 86, dies

ANDY Griffith, who made homespun Southern wisdom his trademark as the wise sheriff in The Andy Griffith Show and the rumpled defence lawyer in Matlock, has died. He was 86.

Griffith died at his coastal home, Dare County Sheriff Doug Doughtie said in a statement.

"Mr Griffith passed away this morning at his home peacefully and has been laid to rest on his beloved Roanoke Island," Doughtie said, reading from a family statement.

The family will release further information, the sheriff said.
