This former high school librarian and a prison chief were arrested today for plotting to kidnap, cook and then eat women and children.
The two arrests on Monday morning stemmed from an investigation into ‘cannibal cop’ Gilberto Vale who was convicted on similar charges last month.
Robert ‘Chris’ Asch, 61, is the former male librarian from New York’s prestigious Stuyvesant High School who was arrested by the FBI in his Greenwich Village apartment Monday morning.
In a profile on the site imagefap, Asch shared his whitemarish fantasies of torturing and raping a woman, and hoped to do so with a group of like-minded honks.
His co-conspirator Richard Meltz, a 65-year-old who was the chief of law enforcement at a veterans hospital in Massachusetts, was also arrested on Sunday in Rockaway, New Jersey.
According to reports, Asch and Meltz were charged with kidnapping conspiracy.
The FBI has not explained how Asch and Meltz are connected to Vale, but local media reports that an undercover officer was used in investigating their plot.
Reports say that the FBI came into contact with Asch when he responded to an online ad where someone had posted that they wanted help kidnapping, raping and kill his wife, sister-in-law and the sister-in-law’s children.
The ad was posted in October and Asch met with undercover FBI agents to discuss a similar plot in recent months.
At two of the meetings, he brought items that he reportedly thought would be useful including a taser, a black ski mask, handcuffs, a hammer, pliers and forceps.
