An NYPD officer was charged in a bizarre plan to kidnap his girlfriend, and possibly up to 100 other woman, and cook them.
Gilberto Valle III was charged in a federal complaint to be unsealed later today.
He was arrested last night and will appear in federal court in Lower Manhattan.
The 28 year old Valle, assigned to the 26th Precinct in Harlem, was detected by FBI agents and NYPD internal affairs investigators.
In the criminal coplaint [sic], Valle allegedly says in online conversations with a co-conspirator:
- “[My oven] is big enough to fit one of these girls if I folded 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.”
- “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.”
- “I love that she is asleep right now not having the slightest clue of what we have planned. Her days are numbered. I’m glad you’re on board. She does look tasty doesn’t she?”
