New York 'Cannibal Cop' Pleads Not Guilty In Manhattan Federal Court
Gilberto Valle, 28, the New York City Police officer who resided in Forest Hills, Queens, and was arrested last month on charges of conspiracy for his alleged plans to kidnap, torture, cook and cannibalize women, pleaded not guilty on Monday to the federal charges at a brief hearing in a U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
Valle was also arraigned for accessing the federal National Crime Information Center database without authorization. Julia Gatto, Valle's public defender, attempted to get bail set for her client for the third time, after it has already been denied him twice — once following his October arrest, and once on November 9. Valle will return to court on Tuesday for a bail hearing.
Valle's arrest came after his wife found troubling material on his computer, including emails he sent to a friend that describe his alleged plans of "tying her body onto some kind of apparatus [and] cook her over low hear and keep her alive as long as possible."
Discovered on Valle's computer were names and pictures of at least 100 women, sometimes with their addresses and physical descriptions included, reports NBC News.
Valle allegedly identified a certain woman, with whom he reportedly recently traveled to Maryland to have lunch, as "Victim 1" in his notes.
