Attention-starved ladies are lining up for love bites from “Cannibal Cop” Gilberto Valle, who claims about 50 women want to jump his bones. The ex-cop with the flesh-eating fantasy fetish received nibbles of interest from female fans on social media almost immediately upon getting out of prison in July 2014, when his conviction for planning to kill, cook and eat women was tossed by a judge.
“They would say things like, ‘I’m really happy you prevailed’ and ‘Hope you’re doing well,’” said Valle. “Many reached out because they are interested in my case. I started chatting more with a few of them and eventually asked some on dates. “Everything is already out there for people to see, so I have no problem answering questions honestly,” added Valle, 32, who lives with his mother in Queens. “I like meeting women who already know everything about me, so I don’t have to suddenly drop this bomb on them.”
Only a month ago, Valle met a young catch online. “After chatting for a while on Facebook, I took the initiative and asked her out,” he said. “Since she’s not from New York City originally, I showed her around and we did touristy stuff.”
The twentysomething Brooklyn gal and Valle whetted their appetites at a Chinese joint around Wall Street – he had the Grand Marnier shrimp and she ordered the eggplant. A self-described “gentleman,” he buttered up his lady friend – whom he described as “passionate about law” – by whisking her to the top of the Empire State building. The romantic evening ended with a stop at Stand-Up New York for a comedy show. “We definitely hit it off,” claimed Valle, who snacked on a garden omelette during the brunch-time interview with The Post.
The dinner date was far different from the maniacal flesh feasts Valle was accused of planning in 2013. His now-former wife, Kathleen Mangan, found the online cannibal chats with other fetishists after installing spyware on the couple’s home computer. In the gory conversations, he discussed killing his wife and other women and kidnaping one for a $5,000 fee, prosecutors said.
“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,” he allegedly wrote in one chat.
Valle was fired by the NYPD after his arrest. He was found guilty after a three-week trial in Manhattan federal court on March 12, 2013, for conspiring to kidnap. He was jailed for a total of 21 months, seven of those in solitary confinement, before a judge overturned the verdict, saying his schemes were merely “fantasy role-play.”
Valle has rebooted his life, and his dark fantasies haven’t hurt his dating life. His last date “brought up what happened once and said she thought the whole thing was nonsense and everyone has their own things they’re into and shouldn’t be prosecuted or judged for it,” he said. “It was nice to feel that comfortable with someone again.”
His ex-wife wasn’t as understanding. After going to the cops about her husband’s alter ego, she fled New York with their daughter, now 4, for Reno, Nev. Valle hasn’t seen either since, but is working to earn visitation privileges to see his child.
The Middle Village resident says he is also marinating on the content of a “brutal tell-all” he’s writing that will get “really deep” into his bizarre proclivities. He was reluctant to reveal details of the book – except that it won’t have recipes. “The book starts in my childhood as a kid,” he told The Post. “Then it talks about how I got into all this. It started gradually during my teenage years. I was watching bondage porn and that led me to cannibal Web sites,” he explained. “People don’t have to like what I am into sexually, but the issue here is that an innocent person was thrown in prison for his thoughts. I spent 21 months in prison for a crime I didn’t, and never would, commit.” The book is about a third of the way finished, and Valle has hired ghost writer Brian Whitney, who penned porn star Porsche Lynn’s The Girl with the Million-Dollar Legs.
He’s being represented by the AGI Vigliano literary agency, but has yet to nail down a publisher. “I’m doing it because I want to set the record straight. One day my daughter will be old enough to look into all this stuff on her own, and I want her to read something that came from me,” Valle continued..
He will touch on his nearly two years in prison, where he was given the job of, what else, kitchen supervisor. His time in the Metropolitan Correctional Center still haunts him today. “I have nightmares about being in solitary and can’t sleep with my bedroom door closed,” he claimed.
His book will also confront “prosecutors’ lies [that] cost me my freedom,” he added. “The prosecutors have immunity and can say whatever they want and they aren’t held accountable. It’s not right.”
The memoir will explore the issue of “thought crimes” and the difference between fantasizing about committing crimes and actually carrying them out.
Still, Valle – who works as a hard hat for a friend’s construction company – admitted he’s attending therapy sessions. “I don’t feel ashamed,” he said. “So what if I have these fetishes? I would never actually act anything out in real life.”
