An NYPD officer was arrested last night after authorities say he hatched a bizarre plot to kidnap and cook his girlfriend and up to 100 other women.
“[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,” Officer Gilberto Valle III said in an online conversation with a co-conspirator, according to a federal criminal complaint first obtained by WABC (read the full complaint here).
Valle went on to the tell the co-conspirator that “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.”
And then there’s this: “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?”
“This is a bizarre case. We suspended the officer immediately upon his
arrest, and a review is now underway to determine whether there was
anything in his background that should have alerted the department to
his alleged proclivities. I want to commend the NYPD Internal Affairs
Bureau detectives and FBI agents who worked jointly on this
investigation,” NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly says in a statement.
Valle is scheduled to appear in federal court in Manhattan later today. Check back for updates.
