Jailed ‘killer cop’ questioned about Jeffrey Epstein’s injuries
Fellow inmate Nicholas Tartaglione, a former Briarcliff Manor cop who faces the death penalty in four drug-related killings upstate, was wearing earbuds when investigators went to question him about the incident, sources said.
Tartaglione, 51, claimed that he didn’t hear anything and wasn’t responsible for Epstein’s injuries, sources said.
Epstein, 66, was found nearly unconscious and sprawled on the floor of his cell in the Metropolitan Correctional Center on Tuesday, sources have said previously.
The multimillionaire financier was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he received treatment before being returned to the infamous jail and placed on suicide watch, sources said.
