A jury has convicted a New York City policeman — dubbed by press as the "Cannibal Cop" — of plotting to kidnap, kill and then eat women.
Jurors appeared uncomfortable Monday as prosecutors showed a video of a screaming woman being cooked alive over an open flame and other disturbing images from websites devoted to torturing and eating women — evidence prosecutors say proves a New York City police officer was involved in a cannibalism plot.
A New York City police officer's bizarre Internet discussion of cannibalism — what he claims was harmless fantasy — was instead a serious plot to abduct, torture and eat "very real women," a federal prosecutor said Monday at the officer's kidnapping conspiracy trial.
In Internet chats as breezy as they were bizarre, a police officer accused of plotting to kidnap and eat as many as 100 women was once cautioned not to be wasteful when cooking a victim because "there is nearly 75 pounds of food there."
