Gatti’s wife worked in Weehawken strip club

The wife of recently murdered boxer and Jersey City native Arturo Gatti used to work at a Weehawken strip club and live in Union City.
Two days ago, Brazilian police charged 23-year-old Amanda Rodrigues with the champ’s murder.
Rodrigues used to live in Union City and worked as a dancer/stripper at the Squeeze Lounge in Weehawken.
Gatti was found dead at the age of 37 over the weekend, and police suspect that his wife used a purse strap to kill him while he was sleeping.
For much more on Gatti’s life and on his friends’ memories of him, please see Jim Hague’s sports column this weekend.
