Assistant US Attorney Jason Swergold revealed last week that the surveillance footage recorded outside Jeffrey Epstein’s cell during his first suicide attempt has gone missing.
The video footage was requested by the lawyer of Epstein’s cellmate at the time, Nick Tartaglione.
Tartaglione, a former police officer who is facing the death penalty for murder, said he saved Epstein’s life when he tried to hang himself. Epstein said that Tartaglione attacked him.
Bruce Barket, Tartaglione’s attorney, had requested the footage be retained on July 25th, two days after the Billionaire’s unsuccessful suicide attempt. Barket wanted the video to use in the former cop’s defense to show that “he is a good person and acted appropriately and admirably.”
Tartaglione still hasn’t been questioned about Epstein’s suicide.
