NYPD Cop Won't Be Eating Any Women

This disturbing story turns the term "maneater" on its head in a very literal way: A NYPD cop has been charged in a plot to kidnap, cook, and eat women, Tom Hays of the Associated Press reports. The cop, Gilberto Valle III, targeted his girlfriend and possibly as many as 100 other women. Disturbingly, the criminal complaint reveals that he had online conversations with a collaborator about his specific methods of cooking, according to ABC, writing things like: "[My oven] is big enough to fit one of these girls if I folded their legs." And: "I was thinking of tying her body onto some kind of apparatus&cook her over a low heat, keep her alive as long as possible." And: "She does look tasty doesn't she?"
