NYPD officer arrested in cannibalism plot

MYFOXNY.COM -

Federal authorities have arrested a New York City police officer in connection with a plot to kidnap women, cook them and eat the body parts.

A source told Fox 5 News that the officer had been plotting online with another person, who eventually tipped off federal authorities.

No women were harmed.

The officer was identified as Gilberto Valle, 28, of Queens. He had been assigned to a Manhattan precinct before his suspension on Wednesday.

Valle is accused of planning to abduct up to 100 women. The criminal complaint claims Valle started his plot around January 2012.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said, "Gilberto Valle's alleged plans to kidnap women so that they could be raped, tortured, killed, cooked, and cannibalized shock the conscience. This case is all the more disturbing when you consider Valle's position as a New York City Police officer and his sworn duty to serve and protect."

Around July 22, the complaint clams that Valle communicated with a co-conspirator using an instant messaging program to talk about kidnapping, cooking and eating body parts of one woman.

They also allegedly discussed where to find a recipe for chloroform.  During this time period, Valle also created a document entitled "Abducting and Cooking [Victim]: a Blueprint." The document contains pedigree information about the woman—including her name, date of birth, height, weight, and bra size. The document also contains a section called "Materials Needed" in which Valle wrote, in part, the following:

Car (I have it)
Chloroform (refer to website for directions)
Rope (Strongest kind to tie her up)

He is also accused of illegally accessing a law enforcement database as part of his plot.

The FBi searched Valle's computer and say he had created files pertaining to at least 100 women and had at least one photo of each of the woman.  The majority of the women were listed by their first and last names.

The criminal complaint claims that Valle used the databases to locate potential victims, spy on them at their homes and workplaces, drafted an "operation plan" to abduct and "cook" a woman, and researched methods of disabling and drugging women.

The FBI says it interviewed 10 of the women on in the files and confirmed that they knew Valle.

The feds claim he also agreed, with at least one other individual, to kidnap a woman in exchange for money.

Valle is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.

Valle is also charged with one count of intentionally and knowingly accessing a computer without authorization and exceeding his authorized access and thereby obtaining information from a department and agency of the United States, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Valle was arraigned in federal court in Manhattan Thursday evening and ordered held without bail.
