Playing 'Cannibal Cop' Reveals He Still Visits Fantasy Websites: 'There's Nothing Wrong With That'

The former New York City police officer known as the "Cannibal Cop" has revealed he still visits websites for sexual fantasies, months after his conviction was reversed in a case that gripped America.

Gilberto Valle spoke exclusively to Inside Edition in an interview that will air in full Wednesday afternoon. He is speaking ahead of the release of his new book, Raw Deal: The Untold Story of NYPD's Cannibal Cop.

Valle, 32, was arrested in October 2012, accused of planning to kidnap dozens of women so that he could cook and eat them.

He was busted after his wife checked his internet search history and found he had described his dark fantasies, including kidnapping and killing her, in online chat rooms.

Valle, who is now divorced, was charged with conspiracy to commit kidnapping and found guilty by a jury in March 2013. But nearly two years later, the conviction was overturned on appeal.

Inside Edition's Diane McInerney asked him if he still visits sexual fantasy websites.

"On occasion, yes," he said. "Because there's nothing illegal, there’s nothing wrong with that. What I do at home is my business."

In the interview, he said that despite those online conversations, he's not a bad guy.

"It's not a crime to fantasize about people you know," he said. "It's not a crime to fantasize about committing crimes against people you know. It's action. There were no actions taken, period."
