A New York police officer has been charged in connection with a plot to allegedly kidnap more than 100 women for the purpose of eating them, officials say.

In what is definitely the strangest case of cannibalism we’ve heard this week, Gilberto Valle III was caught after he allegedly held conversations online regarding his plans, which included his girlfriend, who was referred to as “tasty” looking.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly released a statement about the arrest:

This is a bizarre case. We suspended the officer immediately upon his arrest, and a review is now underway to determine whether there was anything in his background that should have alerted the department to his alleged proclivities. I want to commend the NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau detectives and FBI agents who worked jointly on this investigation.

    Ouch! To me, it sounds like the pressures of the job got to this man. It is possible that he might have meant the online conversations to be nothing more than a joke, but……I don’t know. If he was serious, it’s clear that something inside him just plain snapped. Nobody sane & happy would be duplicating Hannibal Lecter’s actions.

    he needs to be given the benefit of the doubt.
    but you never know !!!!!
    i can’t understand men who want to hurt women and make them cry
    with pain. as a woman, i would never get turned on by raping a man
    while pounding his head in the cement. if this guy doesn’t like women,
    then go find a male partner.
