 Murder, She Wrote Actors You May Not Know Passed Away


One of the jack-of-all-trades actors who made a total of 11 appearances on the show was actor Ken Swofford. Most of those appearances were as Lieutenant Catalano, lackey to amateur sleuth Dennis Stanton (Keith Mitchell). Interestingly enough, he also played a few bit parts in earlier episodes of the series before the showrunners settled on letting him have a recurring role. Eagle-eyed fans may recognize him as playing characters with such amazing names as Leo Kowalski, Grover Barth, Sid Sharkey, and Sheriff Tugman. Some viewers may have been confused by the fact that he played so many different characters, but he certainly wasn’t the only actor who had fun playing around in different roles on set.



Swofford’s is one of the more recent deaths in the “Murder, She Wrote” cast. He passed away in 2018 at the age of 85. His grandson announced the event on Twitter in November of that year, praising his grandad for being a “jokester,” “angry polar bear,” and “a great father, husband & grandfather.”
