Valerie Cincinelli Now: Where is the NYPD Cop who tried to kill her husband Isaiah Carvalho?

The calm streets of New York held a shocking secret in 2019 – a cold-blooded murder plot crafted by a former cop named Valerie Cincinelli.

To the outside world, Valerie seemed like a normal woman – a 12-year veteran of the NYPD, a mother raising her young daughter. But behind closed doors, she harbored a twisted plan to have her estranged husband Isaiah Carvalho killed.

Valerie turned to her boyfriend John DiRubba to carry out her dark wishes. She gave him $7,000 in cash to hire a hitman to brutally murder Isaiah.

But it didn’t stop there – Valerie wanted John’s own teenage daughter killed as well, to eliminate any witnesses. John was horrified, but agreed to go along with the plan while secretly working with the FBI to gather evidence against Valerie.

The trap was set – an FBI agent posed as the hitman, ready to meet with Valerie. But just before the takedown, Valerie started to suspect something was amiss. She had spotted an unmarked law enforcement vehicle outside her home. In a panic, she frantically called off the hit.

It was too late – her murderous designs had already been exposed. On May 17th, 2019, Valerie was arrested and charged with two counts of murder-for-hire and one count of obstruction of justice. Though she pleaded not guilty, the evidence against her was damning. Phone calls, text messages, and cash payments all pointed to her blood-stained hands.

In 2021, Valerie Cincinelli tearfully pleaded guilty to the murder-for-hire charges. She was sentenced to 4 years behind bars. Her husband Isaiah, though reporting living in constant fear, is still alive despite his wife’s deadly wishes.

And so the case of Valerie Cincinelli came to a close – a shocking saga of a twisted ex-cop who tried to have her own family killed. It just goes to show that even those who have sworn to uphold the law can have the darkest demons hiding inside.
