Let me say it again, WTF? People are mental.
Renato Seabra who killed his 65 yr old lover apparently because he was “not gay” then castrated him and wore the testicles on his arm in some effed up thought that it would cure AIDS.
Renato Seabra, a Portuguese male model, said he was so tortured by his creepy romance with Carlos Castro he beat him to death, castrated him with a corkscrew, then wore the dead man’s genitalia on his arms to harness the severed testicles magical healing powers, defense lawyers revealed at opening statements of the bombshell murder trial, The NY Daily News reported.
“He put one on each wrist,” lawyer Rubin Sinins told the courthouse “He did this for his protection. He could also harness the power. He wandered the streets of Manhattan, touching people, because he had the power to cure people from AIDS, because he had the power to cure them.”
Seabra, 21, killed his 65-year-old lover– a Portuguese society journalist and gay activist — in a sudden psychotic rage, his lawyer told jurors.
“He willingly told police. He wanted to explain why he killed Mr. Castro because he thought what he had done was right.”
Sinins asked the jury to return a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity, hoping his client would be committed to a psychiatric facility.
“He wanted to pursue a career in modeling,” said Assistant District Attorney Maxine Rosenthal.
“He want to be famous and make money. He also wanted nice things — clothes, electronics, gifts for his family. He wanted to eat in nice restaurants. When Carlos Castro showed up in Renato Seabra’s life, he saw a means to an end and he got on board.”
Castro began to tighten the purse strings after catching Seabra in the company of women.
