Carlos Castro Renato Seabra

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 — and hours later a male model suspected in the grisly slay stumbled into a nearby hospital with a pair of slit wrists. The castrated corpse of Carlos Castro, a 65-year-old gay activist and gossip columnist, 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. Around midnight, Castro’s boyfriend, Renato Seabra — a chiseled-chested fashion plate who recently appeared on a model-search reality show in his native Portugal — showed up at Roosevelt Hospital with both wrists slashed, the sources said. Cops were called and took him to Bellevue Hospital, where he is expected to be held for several days before he can even be questioned. Detectives described Seabra as a person of interest in the slaying. - LARRY CELONA, ISABEL VINCENT and TODD VENEZIA
