Prosecutors: NYPD officer was 'deadly serious' about cannibalism scheme
An NYPD officer is on trial in a federal case stemming from a bizarre online plan allegedly to kidnap, cook and eat women.
Gilberto Valle, who was suspended without pay after his arrest last fall, hung his head and appeared to wipe away tears Monday as his 27-year-old wife, Kathleen Mangan, became the first witness to testify against him.
Mangan, a former Bronx school teacher, was the one who alerted authorities that her husband was involved in fetish websites that talked about kidnapping, torturing, cooking and killing women. She and the couple's infant daughter moved out of the family's Queens apartment in September.
Valle, 28, was arrested on October 24, and charged with conspiracy to kidnap a woman.
It is weird, there was another bizarre story not too many years ago about a guy, I think from Germany or some European country, who wanted to be eaten and advertised in a newspaper, and some crazy dude replied to the ad, and said ok, I'll do it, and killed him and then ate some parts of him. No kidding.
