Single women of the Internet, get ready! New York City’s own Gilberto Valle, better known as the "Cannibal Cop" is looking to meet a “nonjudgmental” and slender woman on Match.com.
Valle is a former New York Police Department officer who was found guilty of misusing police resources to find women to fuel his abduction and cannibalism fantasies, which he actively discussed online. Valle was initially arrested in October 2012.
The 30-year-old has been out of jail since July, after he was cleared of conspiring to abduct, cook and eat women. In online messages, Valle described how he wanted to kidnap, kill, cook and eat women, including his wife.
Since the lurid details of the case were based on Valle’s behavior online, the judge threw out the case, writing that “more likely than not the case that all of Valle's Internet communications about kidnapping are fantasy role-play.” The judge did order Valle to seek counseling.
According to the Daily Mail, Valle was also sentenced in November for illegally accessing a federal database. He was also given a year's probation for using police resources to search for women as part of his fantasies. He is no longer with NYPD.
Valle’s wife divorced him in July 2014 and has not allowed him to see their young daughter since.
Valle’s Match.com profile acknowledges he is “rebounding from the errors I made in my past and rebuilding my life.” He also lists cooking and dining out among his interests.
Valle told the New York Post he didn’t know anything about the profile.
