Try and Catch Me 2

Nicky asks her nephew, whom she hates for reasons I will not mention in the riddle, to retrieve something from her airtight walk-in safe, then locks him in it before flying off to New York.
 
As her bad luck would have it, Columbo is investigating the case. It all looks as though it was an accident. Though not to Columbo, considering something that caught his eye inside the safe.
 
And what was inside the safe, aside for the dead body? Nothing but little statues placed on a long wall shelf right across the many metal boxes, some of which hold valuable possessions including money. But, these are not ordinary figurines, rather made out of pure gold (24k) and they represent famous figures. They are as follows and starting from the left to the right: Napoleon Bonaparte, Icarus, Cleopatra VII Philopator, Kali, Yonatan Netanyahu, Kemal Monteno, Indra, Lennox Lewis, Lenny Kravitz, Ernest Hemingway, Dennis Rodman, Madonna, Elvis Presley.
 
What made the detective so very suspicious?

Some people are average, some are just mean.

I'm sure it's just pure coincidence that the first letters of the names of the figurines spell "nicky killed me"

I saw it too.  It is my favorite Columbo episode. And that is why the title is "Try and Catch Me 2", hence "2". Thanks for playing. Or was this friendly banter? Alright!
