What’s cookin’, good lookin’?
No, those aren’t the opening words on “Cannibal Cop” Gilberto Valle’s new online profile with the dating site Match.com, but he is out there and looking for love — and listing “cooking” as one of his favorite hobbies.
The former New York City police offer, whom the media called the “cannibal cop” for plotting to cook and eat his ex-wife, was originally found guilty, but then later released from jail this summer after a judge tossed his conviction, saying the cannibalism was all a fantasy. In case you missed it, below is a rundown of the case, as well as his release.
Now Valle is back on the
meat market and looking for love — or maybe just “non-judgmental” woman who’s “a little kinky ;-).”
According to The New York Post, here are some highlights from the cannibal cop dating profile.
Under the handle “AmicableOne14,” the 30-year-old, disgraced former NYPD officer notes he’s a big foodie looking for a woman age 24 to 32 who likes cooking, dining out and wine tasting. Of his ideal date, he writes: “You appreciate the simple things and can make the best out of a situation that is less than ideal,” perhaps alluding to the fact that he’s under “supervised release” and has a curfew.
When approached by The Post, Valle initially denied having a profile. When he was shown a screenshot he responded, “I don’t want to see it, thanks,” and hurried inside his home.
Some other highlight from the profile include wanting to travel and take a cross-country drive, seeing Jerry Seinfeld do stand-up, that he drinks “an abnormal amount of coffee,” and that occasionally he needs a day indoors by himself to enjoy a glass of bourbon on the rocks. But it seems the most heartfelt portion, if you know his back-story, says this:
I am spending my energy rebounding from the errors I made in my past and rebuilding my life. Things are progressing very well on that front, and I am just beginning a new career.
He does not mention the trial, or that he’s on supervised release.
