Who murdered Auturo GATTI?

Ok, the story is out there.

The mystery surrounding his death continues while his family is in a legal battle with his former wife over which will is valid.

Was it suicide - or was it murder?  This ex-Chicago cop thinks the latter - as does his brother and family. No-body but 10 men - they say - could have taken him as lightly as he went down that night in a Brazilian resort on July 11, 2009.

Whatever the outcome, there is an increasing focus on suicide in Sport. Over the summer there have been a string of them among NHL "enforcers" - Wade BELAK, Rick RYPIEN and Derek BOOGAARD - and attention has turned to the possibility the pounding the suffered from their on roles is a factor.  I am not so sure.

One thing I know - Gatti was a whirling dervish in the ring.
