AP Report: Arturo Gatti may have committed suicide

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

In another stunning twist in the ongoing investigation into the death of famed warrior boxer Arturo "Thunder" Gatti, an AP report is now saying that Gatti may have committed suicide:

The Jornal do Comercio newspaper reported in its Saturday edition that the autopsy performed on the former two-division champ shows that Gatti's body was "suspended and hanged, indicating he may have committed suicide."

Paula Cysneiros, a spokeswoman for the medical examiners' office, would not confirm the newspaper's report.

This would be a massive turn of events, though obviously nothing is certain at the moment. Gatti's wife, Amanda Rodrigues, is still in custody and still the only suspect in what has thus far been a murder investigation. Police have ruled out the possibility of anyone else having been in the condo at the time of Gatti's death, so it looks like right now it's down to two possibilities.
