NEW YORK — Police say a 65-year-old man from Portugal who was found dead in his swank Manhattan hotel room was castrated and beaten.

Police say the body was discovered nude by hotel staff after a worried friend went to check on the victim at the InterContinental New York Times Square hotel.

Police are looking to speak to the victim's acquaintance. The two checked in to the hotel together on Dec. 29th. The victim was discovered Friday evening around 7 p.m. inside of room 3416. Police say he suffered serious head trauma. The medical examiner's office will determine a cause of death.

Lemme go out on a limb here...noting that stats say that many murdered people actually knew their murderers...I’d say...hmmmm...the acquaintance may have done it!

I think that even if I were dead, the subsequent emasculation would cause an involuntary flinching response.

There are nut jobs everywhere.

This is a tough case to crack, but I’m sure somebody will take a stab at it, just dieing to cut to the chase.

Grew up in Palm Springs, what can I say?

Emasculation (intentional or unintentional) happens there more often than other places it seems.

yep. How come we aren’t in charge again?

One of my research interests is Medieval torture devices. When the MSM was bitching about waterboarding and ‘torture’, I kept saying “they want torture? I can give them some great ides. How come I never get to be in charge?!”, to which Mr R very calmly replied “That IS why you aren’t in charge, dear.”

He has handled marrying into an IRL Addam’s family quite well, I think.

The ME's office might want to consider that serious head trauma as something of a clue.

Portugese journalist found murdered and mutilated at InterContinental in Times Square

By LARRY CELONA, MATTHEW ABRAHAMS and TODD VENEZIA

Last Updated: 6:37 AM, January 8, 2011

Posted: 2:54 AM, January 8, 2011

The nude, sexually mutilated body of a Portuguese journalist was found in a pool of blood on the floor of a posh Times Square hotel room last night -- sparking a manhunt for the well-dressed 20-year-old male model with whom he had been staying.

The castrated corpse of Carlos Antonio DeCastro, 65, was discovered shortly after 7 p.m. in a 34th-floor room at the InterContinental New York Times Square hotel on West 44th Street, near Eighth Avenue.

His head had been bashed in and, in a gruesome act of depravity, his testicles had been sliced off -- possibly with a broken wine glass -- police sources said.

Detectives described Seabra as a person of interest in the slaying.

...I'm above average.

So you've been castrated, beaten, and eviscerated?

Impressive that you can still type.

NYPD detectives insist they are going balls to the wall to solve this case. It may be a tough nut to crack, but eventually hope to wrap it up in a neat sack.

Hopefully the details above were performed in exactly that order.

After reading Post #36, I think that things look very bad for his homosexual lover’s getting away with this one.

They say that the most violent murders are committed by homosexuals on homosexuals. It must be hard for those who have so much rage to live with it.

Probably a mob hit, and they’ll find another slain man in another hotel, but the killer didn’t get back to this one in time to switch the severed genitals.
