The New York City police officer accused of stalking more than 100 women allegedly planned to have “girl meat” as his Thanksgiving meal, prosecutors said during his bail hearing Tuesday.
The Associated Press reported that, according to a transcript read by prosecutors in federal court, Officer Gilberto Valle made the grisly remark to an unidentified man while chatting online, an allegation his attorney called “pure fantasy.”
Valle was denied bail, with his trial set for Jan. 22.
Valle pleaded not guilty on Monday to planning to abduct, torture, cook and devour the women, whose information he had obtained from a police database, citing several online discussions.
“I was thinking of tying her body onto some kind of apparatus … cook her over low heat, keep her alive as long as possible,” Valle allegedly said in another online chat about one woman in July.
Prosecutors also said Valle stalked women while on duty at the city’s 26th Precinct.
The superintendent of Valle’s apartment building, Raphael Castillo, defended the officer’s character to the AP, while acknowledging he didn’t have any contact with him lately.
“I think he’s a normal person,” Castillo said. “A very good person. When I talked to him, I never [saw anything] wrong.”
