In an eerie twist to a case being compared to "Silence of the Lambs," a former NYPD officer who was convicted of conspiring to kidnap, torture, cook and eat women is now spending his days as a jailhouse cook. 


According to the New York Daily News, 'Cannibal Cop' Gilberto Valle makes breakfast and lunch for his fellow inmates at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. 


Valle was convicted a year ago but is seeking a new trial in an effort to convince a jury pictures and chats with three other men about how to best cannibalize women and his talk about a human sized oven and cooking tray was nothing but mere role playing. However, the former cop was found to have used police database records to find information on potential victims.

Valle was caught after his wife saw some disturbing pics and content on his laptop and realized she was one of the women on his menu. To make matters more complicated, Valle also has a daughter with the woman.
