NYPD cop charged with plot to kidnap and cook 100 women
Feds busted an NYPD cop, who hatched a sick plot to kidnap and cook up to 100 women, authorities said today.
Gilberto Valle III was arrested without incident at his Forest Hills home yesterday, before anyone could be harmed, law enforcement sources said.
The accused sicko and aspiring hired-gun kidnapper made his cannibalistic plans between January and Wednesday, according to a federal complaint.
“On or about July 9, 2012, Gilberto Valle, the defendant, using the Internet and an electronic instant messaging program, communicated with a co-conspirator not named … about kidnapping, cooking and eating body parts of woman,” FBI Special Agent Anthony Foto wrote.
The suspect also “accessed a law enforcement database without authorization,” according to Foto.
He allegedly kept a detailed list of women he was targeting in these ghoulish plots.
Valle “had created files pertaining to at least 100 women and containing at least one photograph of each woman, the majority of whom are listed by their first and last name,” according to Foto.
“The FBI has identified and interviewed ten of these women, each of whom has confirmed to the FBI that Valle is known to her.”
Valle wrote to his co-conspirator between July 9 and 17 and detailed how they’d target “Victim 1,” according to feds.
“How big is your oven?” the unidentified conspirator wrote.
“Big enough to fit one of these girls if I folded their legs,” Valle allegedly responded. “The abduction will have to be flawless.”
Valle allegedly added: “ I know 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.”
The conspirator suggested Valle should target a stranger, because Victim 1 might be too easily identified as a friend of the cop. But Valle allegedly said the victim is from out of state and he’d be able to avoid detection.
Once he captured Victim 1, Valle allegedly planned to make her murder as ghoulishly painful as possible.
“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,” the FBI quoted Valle.
“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?”
The two also discussed how to make chloroform and estimated that “Victim 1” was good for 75 pounds of edible meat.
“The defendant created and edited a document entitled 'Abducting and Cooking [Victim 1]: a Blueprint,’” Foto wrote.
“The document contains pedigree information about Victim-1, including her name, date of birth, height, weight and bra size. The document also contains a section called 'Materials Needed’ in which Valle wrote, in part, the following: Car [I have it], Chloroform [refer to Web site for directions], Rope [Strongest kind to tie her up].”
FBI agents met with Victim 1, and she told them Valle and her met for lunch on July 22.
Valle and his co-conspirator had similar sick plans for another woman, identified in court papers as “Victim-2” -- with the cop allegedly being paid $5,000 for his work securing their prey.
“Full payment due at delivery,” Valle allegedly wrote. “Just so that you know, she may be knocked out when I get her to you.”
Valle allegedly said this work would launch his new career.
“I am aspiring to be a professional kidnapper and that’s business,” the sicko cop wrote, according to feds. “But I will really get off on knocking her out, tying up her hands and bare feet and gagging her.”
The customer and co-conspirator demanded his prize be delivered in pristine shape and Valle allegedly agreed.
“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,” Valle allegedly replied. “You paid for her. She is all yours and I don’t want to be tempted the next time I abduct a girl.”
The FBI met with “Victim-2” and she told agents she only knows Valle in passing and he’s never been to her Manhattan apartment building.
It's conspiracy because he planned the crime with someone and did something illegal (in this case using his authority as a police officer to access records) to start the process of the crime. There is also enough evidence of the planning that he clearly intended to go through with everything, or at least that's why they're going to try to prove.
