Gilberto Valle, accused NYPD "cannibal cop," asks for names of alleged co-conspirators
(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - Lawyers for Gilberto Valle, the NYC cop charged with plotting to kidnap, torture, cook and eat at least 100 women, have reportedly asked for the names of his alleged co-conspirators.
According to the New York Post, court records show prosecutors have records of "hundreds of thousands" of online communications between Valle and over 20 supposed co-conspirators in which they discuss their "violent sexual fantasies."
Valle's defense says they need all of the names to prepare their defense, the Post reports. Only Michael Vanhise, "Moody Blues" and "Ali Khan" have so far been identified in the court documents.
Valle's lawyer has said the alleged plot was pure fantasy. No women were actually harmed.
He has pleaded not guilty.
