Matthau's Wife Dies

Late funnyman WALTER MATTHAU's widow CAROL has died of a broken heart after losing her husband and daughter in the space of three years.

The 78-year-old died of a brain aneurysm in her Manhattan, New York home on 20 July (03) - just weeks after her daughter LUCY's drug death.

The Matthaus' son CHARLES says, "My sister's death in April just devastated my mother. She did a lot for Lucy and loved her very much."

Carol was the model for TRUMAN CAPOTE's HOLLY GOLIGHTLY character in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S.
