Cannibal Cop, and sexual fetish
Gilberto Valle, a.k.a. the “Cannibal Cop” is on trial in New York. If convicted, Valle faces a life sentence for conspiracy to commit kidnapping.
“He encouraged me to run at night” and his porn collection saw “dead” and severed people”, Kathleen Mangan-Valle said during chilling opening testimony.
Monday, experts took the stand to detail how Valle discovered a secret society of people who liked to talk about cannibalism on-line. Many of those in the courtroom cringed as details of a gruesome fetish were revealed. Several ‘would be’ victims of Valle will take the stand today.
The Cannibal Cop was really into his wife’s jogging route. “She broke down after describing how Valle ‘seemed very interested in my running route’ and asked if there were street lights or many people around,” reports the New York Post’s Bruce Golding.
Valle had pictures of his wife and her friends in a secret e-mail account. “I was supposed to be tied by my feet, my throat slit, and they were going to watch the blood rush from my body,” Mangan-Valle is quoted as saying in the Daily News’s report from Robert Gearty and Dareh Gregorian. Reuters’s Chris Francescani reported:
One would be stuffed in a suitcase and delivered “for rape and murder.” Another two were “going to be raped in front of each other to heighten their fears.” And another was to be roasted alive over an open fire, she said.
Mangan-Valle continued to cry as she quoted emails she said she found in which her husband discussed “driving a spit through their wombs over and over again.”
Mangan-Valle discovered a website he frequented called “darkfetishnet”, where asphyxiation was the prominent form of murder. She discovered other sites that were labeled S and M, but revealed dead bodies, feet that were unattached, and other morbid conditions.
So, how does the defense rest with all of that? Valle’s lawyer says that despite all of her client’s disturbing behavior, nothing ever happened — and his wife is still alive to tell the tale. “In her opening statements, his lawyer, Julia Gatto, argued his plans were pure fantasy — role-playing with like-minded online pals, some of whom lived in other countries,” reported the Daily News
So, if your spouse, neighbor or co-worker seems a little “creepy”, understand there are some strange people out there. FBI profilers say many serial killers feel absolutely no emotion unless they are killing another human being.
My wife can’t even watch a movie containing mild violence. I’m not going to let her read this.
