When love goes terribly wrong.
Last week we reported about one individual who decided after the new year to remove his testicles with a knife and throw them in the park , this time we report about the unsavory incident of a 65 year old Portugese journalist, Carlos de Castro who was bludgeoned to death in a luxury NYC hotel room and whom also had his scrotum cut off. Foul play indeed. At present authorities are questioning his 20 something male lover- Renato Seabra.
nydailynews : The naked body of Carlos de Castro, 65, was found face-up in a pool of blood inside his 34th-floor room at the InterContinental New York Times Square on W. 44th St. about 7 p.m. Friday, the sources said.
The prominent gay activist and society columnist had been bludgeoned in the head and his scrotum cut off, sources said.
What one has to wonder if this was a crime of malice or passion? If it was done out of malice quite possibly as a result of the journalist’s positions we ought to be quite saddened that a journalist has to fear for his life because of their espoused points of views- even pro gay. On the other hand if he was bludgeoned out of passion by his lover, perhaps feeling jilted, neglected or any other emotion that one could suspect that could lead to a lover reacting this way then we also ought to be concerned that slighted love interests do not know how to adequately address their deep anguish. After all it could only require deep anguish to bludgeon someone’s head and the demised act of cutting off their scrotum.
Investigators believe Seabra, a former Portuguese reality show contestant, attacked his older lover after Castro accused him of stealing cash, the sources said.
And if we are to believe that the young man is indeed responsible, he was later found out after a nurse and taxi driver committed to memory the atrocious circumstances of his boyfriend’s death(how can you not?) one has to wonder what type of relationship did the two have that would neccesitate such a violent reaction? Or could one argue that this is a typical reaction of a young man scorned and having his masculinity brought into question and thus reacting in the only way tolerable in their own mind to exact revenge and one’s sense of twisted self.
Investigators believe the fighting intensified Friday, and a couple staying in a room two doors down heard the two men arguing hours before the murder.
“There was a lot of noise, talking,” said Suzanne Divilly, 40, who was celebrating her honeymoon in the city.
“You could hear them arguing in the corridor and even in our room,” she said. “We didn’t think anything of it, because it was none of our business.”
Detectives think Seabra grabbed a laptop and bashed Castro over the head with it, police sources said.
As the journalist lay bleeding on the floor of the disheveled room, the model used a broken wine glass to castrate his lover.
To be sure love can be blissful, but the moment it turns sour- it can also be very cruel and utterly painful.
