Gil Valle

Gil Valle rose to infamy in October 2012 and became known to the world as
the NYPD "Cannibal Cop" after he was arrested for allegedly plotting to
kidnap, cook, and eat women. These "plans" were formulated on a fetish
website between people who never communicated in real life, and it was
later found that these were not real plans at all. He has since been
completely exonerated, but his case remains in the forefront of a debate
over the First Amendment, Internet privacy, and "thought crimes." When, if
ever, does a thought without any real action cross the line into criminal
behavior and when are the civil rights of an American citizen violated?

Gil is a graduate of the University of Maryland where he earned his
Bachelors Degrees in Psychology and Criminal Justice. Before his wrongful
arrest, he was an NYPD patrol cop for nearly seven years. He currently
resides in Queens, NY where he works and writes extreme horror fiction.
