NYPD Officer Arrested: 'Cannibal Cop' Gilberto Valle In His Own (Alleged) Words [FBI Complaint]

 

The sick plans allegedly drawn up by NYPD “Cannibal Cop” Gilberto Valle to kidnap, cook and eat women were unveiled in a criminal complaint unsealed Thursday by the FBI.

Valle, a 28-year-old NYPD officer, detailed his alleged plans in a series of online exchanges with a co-conspirator who was not named as a defendant in the case, the FBI says.

The “cannibal cop” had a dossier of 100 women on his computer, complete with photos and personal information such as bra sizes on his would-be victims, according to the FBI.

In the chilling messages allegedly sent between Valle and a co-conspirator, the NYPD cop details his plans to kidnap one of his victims and cook her.

“How big is your oven?” the co-conspirator asks, according to the criminal complaint released Thursday by the FBI.

“Big enough to fit one of these girls if I folded all 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,” Valle responds.

The co-conspirator than suggests targeting a woman who Valle doesn’t know.

“You really would be better to grab a stranger,” they wrote. “The first thing the police force will do is check out a friend.”

“Her family is out of state,” Valle said.

They then discuss plans to make chloroform to knock the victim unconscious.

“I have anaesthetic gasses,” the co-conspirator wrote.

“I can make chloroform here,” Valle responded.

The two then discussed how to cook the body.

“It’s really hard to dislocate (lock) a jaw. Also, how would we put her over the fire, spitting kills the girl. Have to put her into a kind of cage. What is your favorite cut of meat,” the co-conspirator wrote.

Valle wrote back, “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.”

He then gushed about his plans and apparently showed the co-conspirator a picture of the woman.

“I love that she is asleep right now not having the slightest clue of what we have planned,” Valle wrote. “Her days are numbered. I’m glad you’re on board. She does look tasty doesn’t she?”

“You know if we don’t waste any of her there is nearly 75 lbs of food there,” the co-conspirator said. “Have you got a recipe for choloroform?”

Valle shot back, “I found a website a couple of night ago. Let me see if I can get it again.”

According to the FBI, the two later discussed Valle’s price for kidnapping another woman.

“Full payment due at delivery. Just so that you know she may be knocked out when I get her to you. I don’t know how long the solvent I am using will last but I have to knock her out to get her out of her apartment safely,” Valle wrote, quoting the co-conspirator $5,000.

“I am putting my neck on the line here. If something goes wrong somehow, I am in deep s---,” he continued. “$5,000 and you need to make sure that she is not found. She will definitely make the news.”

The co-conspirator expressed concern that the woman would die before Valle brings her to him.

“No need to worry. She will be alive. It’s a short drive to you. I think I would rather not get involved in the rape. You paid for her. She is all yours and I don’t want to be tempted the next time I abduct a girl,” Valle wrote.

The co-conspirator then tried haggling over Valle’s $5,000 price, but Valle would not change his quote.

“Like I said this is very risky and will ruin my life if I am caught,” he wrote. “I really need the money and I can’t take under $5,000.”

Valle was arrested by FBI agents and NYPD detectives Wednesday in Forest Hills, Queens. The U.S. attorney's office announced his arrest Thursday on conspiracy to commit kidnapping and other charges.
