A New York City police officer has been arrested on charges that he planned to kidnap 100 women, cook them, and presumably eat them.
Gilberto Valle III, the “Cannibal Cop,” and a co-conspirator collaborated on a bizarre plan to kidnap Valle’s girlfriend and other women in order to cook and eat them, reports ABC News. The FBI’s criminal complaint against the 28-year-old “Cannibal Cop” will be unsealed later today.
Valle, assigned to the 26th Precinct in Harlem, was originally found out by FBI agents and NYPD internal affairs investigators. He was arrested after online conversations with his co-conspirator detailed a plan to kidnap and cook women including Valle’s own girlfriend. The online conversations are said to include statements such as:
“[My oven] is big enough to fit one of these girls if I folded their legs&The abduction will have to be flawless&I know all of them&[Victim 1], I can just show up at her home unannounced, it will not alert her, and I can knock her out, wait until dark and kidnap her right out of her home.
“I was thinking of tying her body onto some kind of apparatus&cook her over a low heat, keep her alive as long as possible.
“I love that she is asleep right now not having the slightest clue of what we have planned. Her days are numbered. I’m glad you’re on board. She does look tasty doesn’t she?”
Officials detail a number of these bizarre conversations but note that the “Cannibal Cop” never actually went through with these sinister plans, reports MSN. “The allegations in the complaint really need no description from us,” said FBI Acting Assistant Director Mary E. Galligan. “They speak for themselves. It would be an understatement merely to say Valle’s own words and actions were shocking.”
The “Cannibal Cop” has been suspended without pay for his Hannibal Lecter-esque plot.
