Wow...


Cops: Only wife could have been in at time of Arturo Gatti murder; Gatti manager: 'She has no soul'


Brazilian cops put the bloody purse strap and knife that killed Arturo Gatti on display Monday as his wife's lawyer insisted she's too "fragile, young and skinny" to kill a boxing champ.

Police said there's no way anyone but Gatti's 23-year-old wife, ex-stripper Amanda Rodrigues, was inside the couple's luxurious rental apartment when the former champ was killed.

"It was technically impossible for a third person to have been in the flat," lead investigator Moises Teixeira said Monday. "She did this alone."

There were no signs of forced entry. Electronic locks indicated no one else had entered the room.

Rodrigues' lawyer Celio Avelino said her client "is fragile, young and skinny. How could she kill a boxing champion?"

Police believe Rodrigues was capable of strangling her husband because he was drunk - and she stabbed him in the back of the head with a knife.

She then used her nylon purse strap to strangle the passed-out fighter, cops said.

Gatti's distraught sister Anna-Maria Gatti told CTV News Montreal that Rodrigues always provoked fights. "She always said, 'I'm gonna kill you, I'm gonna kill you,'" said Gatti.

When [Rodrigues] awoke, she presumed he had committed suicide. But she had nothing to do with it," her lawyer said.

sure, lots of people commit suicide by stabbing themselves in back of the head followed by strangling. sounds reasonable.    Lookingup

In the little town where I grew up we had a 'socially prominent' woman found dead. Her body was about a mile up in the woods and she had died from a shotgun blast to the back of the head. Even though every one pretty much knew her crazy-ass son (who  liked to tell anyone within earshot he wanted to blow her f**kin' head off) had done it it was officially labeled a suicide.

Yep, that might have tilted the odds in her favor.
