2009: The Summer of Death

And add another score to the celebrity deathfest that's been happening. This guy was a pretty good boxer. It's sad that his wifer felt like she had to kill him. Couldn't she have just smacked him in the head with a pan or a book?

SAO PAULO - Police investigating the death of former boxing champion Arturo Gatti are working on the assumption his wife strangled him with her purse strap while he drunkenly slept. The woman’s lawyer, however, insists she is innocent and was too “fragile” to kill a boxer.

Lead investigator Moises Teixeira told The Associated Press on Monday nothing is being ruled out but he is certain the woman acted by herself.

“It was technically impossible for a third person to have been in the flat,” where Gatti was found dead early Saturday, Teixeira said. “The investigation isn’t finished, but we continue to think she did this alone.”
