One object of the “cannibal” cop’s obsession was an 18-year-old softball star from Archbishop Molloy High School.
Gilberto Valle, the six-year NYPD veteran who planned to kidnap, kill and consume 100 women, eyed a girl from his own alma mater to join his roster of victims.
According to reports, in emails exchanged between Valle and another cannibalistic co-conspirator, the potential prey was referred to as “the most desirable piece of meat I have ever met,” adding that “she is a must-have.”
In a later online conversation, Valle mentioned the athlete again, noting “my oven is pretty big, and I can take the racks out.”
“I know she is a wreck right now,” said a close friend of the target, who wished to remain anonymous.
The friend alleged that Valle attended softball games.
“She’s nervous and scared because she might have to testify at trial to prove that she had no contact with [Valle],” said the friend.
Valle’s trial is set to begin on February 25.
