Peter Falk has died at age 83, reports KTLA in Los Angeles and Variety. The beloved Columbo star died at his home in Beverly Hills last night.
The actor had been suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's disease, according to his daughter, Catherine Falk.
In 2009, a judge established a conservatorship for the ailing actor after a court battle between Catherine and wife of more than 30 years, Shera Falk.
Falk won four Emmys for his starring role in Columbo.
