Preview Clip

A Quebec coroner's report into the 2009 Brazilian resort death of champion boxer Arturo Gatti said there was no hard evidence that anyone killed the boxer. An investigation by Brazilian authorities ruled the death a suicide. A private investigation ordered by one of his handlers examined the evidence and ruled Gatti's death a homicide. Pierre-Hugues Fortin, a lawyer representing Gatti's widow Amanda Rodrigues, said his client hoped the report would put an end to speculation about her late husband's death. (Amanda Rodrigues, the widow, was originally arrested in connection with Gatti's death. But she was eventually released when an investigation determined suicide was the cause of death, a finding rejected by Gatti's family.)
