NEW YORK - A law enforcement official says a police officer's estranged wife alerted New York authorities about her husband, who is now suspected of plotting to kidnap and cook women.

The official says that Gilberto Valle had split from his wife, Kathleen, and that she contacted authorities about disturbing material on his computer.

The official says FBI and internal affairs officers with the NYPD seized Valle's computer and uncovered messages about the plots. The official says the messages were exchanged with people in other countries and were sent on some type of fetish chat room.

The official was not authorized to speak publicly about an ongoing case and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Valle is awaiting arraignment in federal court and it isn't clear if he has a lawyer. No one answered the door to his home.
