Male model convicted in grisly murder of Portuguese TV journalist
CNN ^ | December 2, 2012

(CNN) -- He was a 20-year-old male model. His lover was a 65-year-old man who was a television journalist. They were from Portugal, visiting New York City. The older partner broke off the relationship and ended up mutilated and dead.

Now, almost two years later, a New York jury has convicted model Renato Seabra of the grisly second-degree murder of Carlos Antonio De Castro in their InterContinental Hotel room in Times Square.

"This was a brutal and sadistic crime, where Renato Seabra bludgeoned, choked, and mutilated his victim before murdering him," Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said following Friday's verdict.

"But the jury's verdict now, finally, holds Seabra accountable. It is particularly tragic that Carlos Castro was not only ... betrayed by his spurned lover, but met a very painful and violent end far from his home," Vance said.

Castro was found bludgeoned and castrated in the hotel room in January 2011, a law enforcement source told CNN at the time.

"The older partner broke off the relationship and ended up mutilated and dead."

Don't you just hate when that happens?

Of course this all could have been avoided if society would only allow them to marry. To me, the words “rainbow” and “mutilation murder” just don’t go together.

Actually, yes, I do hate it when a person is brutally murdered.

I'm not trying to take the moral high ground, just would like folks to consider what is being joked about.

wasn’t it about a year ago that a gay porn actor did the same thing to his “lover”?

Faggie on faggie murder is the bloodiest & most violent of all murders.

I was deriving amusement from the manner in which the article was phrased. He broke it off and ended up dead and mutilated.

He ended up? It just sounds so mundane the way they put it.

Well spotted.

It’s a nasty trick the media have developed - to use the passive voice for murder whenever their beloved GBLT are involved.

I see that, akin to “ended up pregnant” or “the gvn went off” - always leave out that important bit to further the goal.

Mental note: If I ever turn gay don't hookup with this guy- he will cut off my 'business' if we break up.

“Castro was found bludgeoned and castrated in the hotel room in January 2011....”

From a different article: “cut off his testicles with a corkscrew while he was still alive.”

Damn.... that’s a tough way to go!

Eeeesh, how do you even “cut” something with a corkscrew? Screw it into the testicle and yank, I guess (and that would probably be one of the least painful ways to do it). WHAT are they teaching the kids over there in Portugal nowadays, anyway?

“He was a 20-year-old male model. His lover was a 65-year-old man who was a television journalist.”

True love. Did they originally meet at some romantic public toilet?
