NEW YORK - A New York City police officer accused of plotting to kidnap, cook, and cannibalize women was detained without bail, the Huffington Post reported Thursday.

Gilberto Valle, 28, was arrested on Tuesday after a two month long investigation, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Valle's phone and computer records show a database of 100 women that has been accumulating since at least February, according to the LA Times. The database includes personal information and physical descriptions for plans to kidnap, torture, cook and eat them.

One document found on his computer was titled "Abducting and Cooking [Victim 1]: A Blueprint," according to the Associated Press. The documents also contained a list of materials still needed to carry out the act.

In another instance, Valle discussed kidnapping a woman he knew and selling her for $5,000, the LA Times reported.

"The allegations in the complaint really need no description from us," said Mary E. Galligan, acting head of the FBI's New York office. "They speak for themselves. It would be an understatement merely to say Valle's own words and actions were shocking."

The police were alerted of Valle's strange online activity by his estranged wife which led to the investigation, according to the Associated Press.
