New York City –
Police in New York have arrested NYPD officer Gilberto Valle in a plot to kidnap, cook and then eat the women, something prosecutors have said makes Hannibal Lecter look innocent.
According to prosecutors, Valle’s wife found disturbing information on the police officer’s personal computer and reported it to the FBI who then began an investigation.
Prosecutors say Valle, a 6-year NYPD veteran, was planning to launch his scheme soon and used police and other law enforcement databases to gather information on possible victims. On the computer were details of how to fi a woman into an oven, how to cook human and other disturbing details.
Valle is being held in jail without bond.
Valle’s attorney has said that it was just a fantasy.
