This should be fiction, but it is not.
A NYPD cop with 6 years on the force conspired to kidnap, rape, murder, cook, and then cannibalize 100 women. He’s been arrested and suspended without pay. He was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and one count of illegally accessing and getting information from the National Crime Information Center database to locate potential targets, scouting potential targets at their homes and workplaces.
Gilberto Valle apparently discussed the plans with other men on a website for people who fantasize about cannibalism. He was in contact with at least two women in his list of 100 women located on his computer, each with a photo, personal info, addresses, etc. His computer also contained an action plan for implementing his first attack, a blueprint for abducting her and eating her, and a list of “materials needed.” He even had a co-conspirator, who Gilberto was going to charge $5000 to be able to participate.
The women are still in the process of being notified by federal authorities. They are apparently both in the US and overseas.
This is one seriously sick individual. I’d expect a story like this to appear in a tabloid, but it comes from CNN. I’m blown away. It appears that a serial killer equivalent to Dalmer or Ridgeway has been stopped prior to committing his crimes. I hope very much they can keep it that way. This is not someone that should be loose on the streets, ever. He will, of course, defend himself by claiming it was all fantasy, but it looks like they’ve got enough evidence to prevent that. Hopefully the jury won’t be a collection of idiots.
