Chilean officials have opened a will prepared by former Dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet before his death but it reveals nothing about his wealth.

Prosecutors were hoping for clues to the millions of dollars they suspect he amassed by diverting public funds during his dictatorship from 1973 to 1990.

The opening of the sealed will that was drawn up in 2000 was requested by Chile's Defense Council of the State, which wants to recover funds from Pinochet's estate.

A notary in charge of the will's opening told reporters at a Santiago court Wednesday that the former strongman left 62.5 percent of his fortune to his widow and the rest was divided among his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

But there are no clues to the size or whereabouts of his fortune.
