New York, NY — February 8, 2016 – In an exclusive airing on Wednesday, INSIDE EDITION’s Diane McInerney speaks with Gilberto Valle, the former New York City police officer who was dubbed the ‘Cannibal Cop’ when he was accused of planning to cook and eat women. Valle was charged with conspiracy to kidnap. He was found guilty by a jury, and was fired by the police department upon his conviction. But the verdict was overturned.

 

Valle was busted when his wife discovered him chatting online under the moniker, “Girlmeat Hunter,’ describing in detail a plan to kidnap and kill her.

 

He admits writing that he wanted to bash his wife in the head, see blood come out, and see her scream and moan. “Yeah, I did write those things,” he tells INSIDE EDITION.

 

Today, Valle lives the life of a free man and has co-written a book, “Raw Deal: The Untold Story of NYPD’s Cannibal Cop.”

 

But he admits to INSIDE EDITION that, “on occasion,” he still visits websites devoted to people with cannibalism fantasies.

 

When INSIDE EDITION asks him why he still goes on those websites, he says, “Because there’s nothing illegal, there’s nothing wrong with that. What I do at home is my business.”

 

He goes on to defend his actions. “It’s not a crime to fantasize about people you know. It’s not a crime to fantasize about committing crimes against people you know. It’s action. There were no actions taken, period,” he says.
