It's never too early in the day to add more disturbing details to the bulging "Cannibal Cop" file in your brain. Indeed, nothing's more invigorating than a hot cup of coffee and tasting notes on human flesh. Granted, the following online exchanges between NYPD officer Gilberto Valle and a would-be dining partner never went beyond the realm of culinary fantasy (as far as we know). But that doesn't make their chats any easier to swallow—"roasted pelvis" anyone?
According to court documents obtained by the NY Post, Valle spent some time in one of his creepy chat rooms talking shop with a man who went by the screen name "Moody Blues." Prosecutors want transcripts of the chats admitted as evidence, while Valle's lawyers argue that his banter with Moody Blues is irrelevant, dismissing it as "hyperbolic and twisted recanting of prior instances of cannibalization."
Moody Blues is indeed twisted, or claimed to be; according to the transcripts he boasted of eating "a black woman and a white child." Still, he wasn't the most sophisticated gourmand, admitting to Valle, "I've not had a young white woman. Looking forward to it." According to Moody, human flesh "isn't quite like pork, but very meaty anyway." And he says he's particular fond of "roasting whole pelvises, mind you only did with the little one so far." Valle allegedly replied, "Excellent."
Moving right along, Valle's public defenders argue that their client "never engages in the conversation on this subject with Moody Blues other than to usher the conversation away from the matter and into sexual fantasies about which Mr. Valle finds arousing—all of which have to do with adults." Compared to that sick fuck Moody Blues, Valle was a pillar of the cannibal community! All Valle wanted to do (allegedly!) was dine on an adult woman... after "tying her body onto some kind of apparatus" in order to "cook her over a low heat, keep her alive as long as possible."
Prosecutors argue that the online chat with Moody Blues is not "unfairly prejudicial." On the contrary, they find them "highly probative of Valle's state of mind and of the existence of an actual, and non-fantastical agreement between Valle and the co-conspirator to commit a kidnapping. Indeed, they are no more sensational, depraved and disturbing than the related portions of the conversations (which Valle concedes are admissible) about shoving a specific and identified woman into an oven, with her legs folded under her, or cooking her over an open fire, slowly, to prolong her suffering."
There's no indication that Moody Blues and Valle met in real life, but Moody Blues seemed eager to tuck in, asking Valle, "If we get someone...and we finish the meat early, would you go for another?" Valle allegedly replied, "Yeah. I think we would have to give it time though." To which Moody Blues asked, "Why? Go for a completely different type. I'd love to eat another child."
Moody Blues identity has not been determined, and he remains at large, presumably working on his forthcoming cookbook The Other Other White Meat: 12 Easy Recipes For the Hungry Hungry Cannibal.
