Gilberto Valle might not be a bloodthirsty cannibal — but he hopes to cook up some cash thinking like one.
The former NYPD cop, who spent almost two years in prison on charges that he was plotting to kidnap, slaughter and eat young women, has penned an “extremely violent” horror novel that he hopes will rake in some green. The conviction was later thrown out after a federal judge decided it was all fantasy.
“Even though I’ve been completely exonerated, all this stuff about ‘Cannibal Cop’ is still there,” Valle, 33, told the Daily News on Monday. “Writing the book comes down to me trying to find a way to make a living.”
