Amanda Rodrigues Gatti, Arturo Gotti's Wife, Arrested in Brazil
Police have taken Arturo Gatti's wife, Amanda Rodrigues Gatti, into custody after the boxer's suspicious death at a Brazilian resort.
Authorities detained Amanda Carina Barbosa Rodrigues because of contradictions in her statement to police. Apparently, officers wondered how Amanda Rodrigues could have been in a hotel room for 10 hours after Gatti's death without reporting it to police.
Authorities for the Pernambuco state civil police say Gatti appears to have been strangled with the strap of a purse.
Amanda Rodrigues Gatti and Arturo Gatti were reportedly on their second honeymoon, vacationing at a resort in Porto de Galinhas, Brazil. On Friday night, the couple allegedly got into a heated argument outside a bar. Friends close to Gatti have stated that the Amanda Rodrigues-Arturo Gatti marriage had been rocky as of late.
Authorities appear to be planning to press formal charges against Amanda Rodrigues Gatti in relation to the Gatti death.
