Main Events Arturo Gatti Statement

With all due respect to the Brazilian authorities, we knew Arturo Gatti and we do not believe that he took his own life. Members of Arturo’s family, along with his boxing manager Pat Lynch, are conducting their own investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death. We believe that once the results of that investigation are revealed, the truth will come to light and justice will be done..



Brazil police say Gatti hanged himself

Brazilian police released new details about the boxer’s death and said that Arturo Gatti hanged himself with a handbag strap from a staircase. A judge already ordered the release of Gatti’s wife, 23-year-old Amanda Rodrigues, who had been held since July 12 in Recife.

“This case has been resolved. While the evidence at the scene first led us to think Gatti was murdered, the autopsy results and a detailed crime scene analysis simply pointed to a different outcome,” Milena Saraiva, a spokeswoman for the police told AP. “The first investigators to arrive at the scene only saw his body on the floor and the bloodied strap near his body,” Saraiva said. “They assumed his wife strangled him.”
