NYPD ‘Cannibal’ Cop Found Guilty Of Wanting To Kidnap, Eat Women

A NYPD cop arrested for plotting to kidnap, cook, and eat over 100 women was convicted of all charges by a federal jury earlier today.

Officer Gilberto Valle, 28, was arrested in November after police were tipped off by an estranged wife. Police searched his computer and found records for over 100 women on Valle’s computer. The NYPD cop pulled much of this information using a law enforcement database.

Valle claimed he knew many of the women on the list and had amicable relationships with some of them. At least ten of the women were interviewed by the FBI and confirmed that they knew Valle. His wife was also on the list.

Valle had talked about his fantasy on online chatrooms. He claimed that he had an oven big enough to cook one of the women as long as he folded her legs. He also discussed a desire to have “girl meat” for Thanksgiving.

None of the women were ever harmed. Valle’s defense claimed that police had only found evidence of Valle’s sexual fantasy “in a deviant world where people talk about unreal things.”

The so-called cannibal cop stirred a debate over whether people can be convicted over fantasies. Valle never harmed any of the women stored on his computer, and many saw the case as a question of whether disturbing fantasies be considered unsafe and illegal. Some wondered if Valle is a sick individual and whether that should entail a discussion of mental health. Ultimately, the jury convicted Valle of plotting to commit a crime.

Before Valle’s guilty verdict, the prosecution claimed that he “left the world of fantasy and entered the world of reality.”

Prosecutors found that Valle had taken concrete steps to abduct at least six of the women including his wife. They emphasized that he had looked up potential targets on a restricted law enforcement database, searched the internet for how to knock someone out with chloroform, and traveled to the block of one of his targets.

“Today, a unanimous jury found that Gilberto Valle’s detailed and specific plans to abduct women for the purpose of committing grotesque crimes were very real, and that he was guilty as charged,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement after the verdict was announced. “The Internet is a forum for the free exchange of ideas, but it does not confer immunity for plotting crimes and taking steps to carry out those crimes.”

The NYPD cannibal cop will now have to pay the price for taking his fantasies too far.

    Sick bastard. Very scary. You have to know your surroundings at all times because you don't know what sicko is out there trying to get you.

    OMG! he was cop? so much for the NYPD's Psych Evaluations…

    Sic bastard? God Yes! Crime? Not so sure. What this proves to me is that you can be imprisoned for fetish fantasies regardless of them being acted out. Whether or not he was actually going to eat someone we will never know. And maybe you're OK with that since in your mind he's a psycho. But it will not end here. People will be convicted of thinking and talking about bad thoughts.

    Yeah, he never really acted on it unless he out lined his plans and had bought the stuff to do it. It could be over turned on appeal. He still one twisted person.

    I think that accessing a law enforcement data base to satisfy his fantasy is probably illegal. There is something there and if he went forward with it, everyone would be going off about it….damned if you do etc……

    Hearing this story it makes you wonder if you should be able to trust anyone anymore. Even Police, relatives, etc…

    Maybe he should be given to the women and they could cut his dick off and cook it for him and give him bangers and mash with onions. Well you could throw in a few balls as well. I wonder if his mum didn't give him enough to eat when he was little then hey? hahahahahaha

    I'm confused, how do they convict him for this but if a female is stalked cops can not do ANYTHING until the perp actually takes some kind of action against the female. What is th difference?
