A New York City Police officer has been arrested following a combined investigation by the FBI and the NYPD where it is alleged that the defendant has conspired to kidnap, kill , cook and eat a female victim.
The investigation also alleges that Gilberto Valle III was thinking big and intended to abduct, kill cook and eat at least 100 women.
He has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and using The National Crime Information Center to collect data about his intended victims.
"Gilberto Valle's alleged plans to kidnap women so they could be raped, tortured, killed and cooked and cannibalized shock the conscience" said Preet Bahara, U.S, Attorney for the Southern District of New York."The 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."
