NYPD: Cop Wanted to Cook Women

Is cooking your victims a new trend or something? An NYPD officer was charged on Thursday in a plot to kidnap and cook his girlfriend—and maybe as well as 100 other women. Gilberto Valle, 28, an officer in the 26th precinct in Manhattan, allegedly used instant messaging to communicate with a co-conspirator, reportedly even talking about how to cook a person “over low heat, keep her alive as long as possible.” Valle also allegedly accessed a law-enforcement database without authorization, reportedly developed his own database—with photos—of 100 potential victims, and had started staking out their homes and business. Valle was arrested Wednesday after a three-month FBI investigation. He is not known to have participated in any of the acts he talked about.
