Nurse faces sex charges after cannibalism probe

A British nurse has been charged with sex offences and attempting to poison someone after his name emerged as part of an international investigation into cannibalism.

Dale Bolinger, 57, formerly from Canterbury, Kent, is charged with 11 counts in connection with activity over the internet between him and several people.

An investigation was initiated earlier this year after a liaison between Kent police and officers from the FBI, who were investigating offences of conspiracy to kidnap and murder by Gilberto Valle, 28, a former New York police officer.

Bolinger was arrested on February 21 on suspicion of committing conspiracy offences and has been on police bail until today.

He was charged with one count of attempting to administer poison to someone, two counts of possessing an indecent photograph of a child, one count of attempting to meet a girl under 16 following sexual grooming, and seven counts of publishing an obscene article.

The alleged offences occurred between 2010 and February 21 this year.
