NJ Man Arrested in NY Cannibalism Case

NEW YORK — A New Jersey man is charged with conspiring with a New York City police officer to try to kidnap, rape and kill an unidentified woman in Manhattan.

Michael Vanhise was charged in federal court papers unsealed Friday in Manhattan. He was arrested in Trenton.

The FBI says Vanhise agreed to pay $5,000 to Officer Gilberto Valle for the abduction last year. The FBI says Vanhise also admitted emailing others about kidnapping, raping and killing women and children.

Valle was charged last year with targeting victims through a law-enforcement database. He allegedly wanted to kidnap, rape, kill and eat women.

The officer’s lawyer says he was engaging in sexual fantasies and intended no violence.

Vanhise’s lawyer did not immediately return a call for comment.
