Andy Griffith has died. The actor made homespun Southern wisdom his trademark as the wise sheriff in "The Andy Griffith Show" and the rumpled defense lawyer in the TV series "Matlock."

Griffith's career spanned more than a half-century on stage, film and television. The sheriff of Dare County, N.C., says Griffith died peacefully this morning at his coastal home in Manteo.

No cause of death has been given. He was 86.
