A 6-year veteran of the New York Police Department has been charged with a slew of charges involved in his plan to kidnap and cook women, including his girlfriend.

Though he never managed to go through with his plans, Officer Gilberto Valle, 28, of Forest Hills, Queens was planning to kidnap, torture, rape, and cook as many as 100 women.

Described as quiet by his neighbors Valle was secretly using a federal database to make a list of his potential victims. He also planned to sell the information.

Valle also offered to use chloroform to help buyers kidnap women for $5,000.

In one interaction with like-minded would-be kidnappers, police has documents stating Valle wrote:

It is going to be so hard to restrain myself when I knock her out, but I am aspiring to be a professional kidnapper and that’s business. But I will really get off on knocking her out, tying up her hands and bare feet and gagging her. Then she will be stuffed into a large piece of luggage and wheeled out to my van.

In another encounter with an unnamed co-conspirator in July, Valle was asked how big his oven is, to which he responded:


Big enough to fit one of these girls if I folded their legs…The abduction will have to flawless..I know all of them. I can just show up at her house unannounced, it will not alert her, and I can knock her out, wait until dark and kidnap her right out of her home.

Valle was suspended from the 26th precinct in upper Manhatten without pay on Wednesday.

The wannabe cannibal was arrested after an FBI investigation sparked by his estranged wife, Kathleen Cooke Mangan. Mangan is the mother of Valle’s daughter, and reported left him and the state after finding “weird stuff” on his computer. After her find in September, Mangan contacted authorities who then began an investigation with cooperation with the NYPD. 

Federal agents would go on to find a document Valle had titled “Abducting and Cooking: A Blueprint” and also found he had downloaded a chloroform recipe.

Valle has been denied bail by Manhattan federal court Magistrate Judge Henry Pitman noting the federal complaint described “unspeakable” and profoundly disturbing” conduct.

He is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and one count of illegally accessing and getting information from the National Crime Information Center database.
