Alleged Cannibal Cop Demands Name of Alleged Co-Conspirators

Needed in order to plan defense of New York officer accused of plotting to kidnap, kill and eat women


A New York police officer accused of planning to kidnap, rape and eat women has demanded the names of the 20-plus suspected cannibals he is alleged to have plotted his attacks with.

Police say they possess thousands of emails and instant-messages sent and received by Gilberto Valle, in which he and others talk about their violent sexual fantasies.

Thus far, however, police have released only three names of alleged co-conspirators – Michael Vanhise, 'Moody Blues' and 'Ali Khan'.
