Guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, where Jeffrey Epstein was detained and died, pressured his former cellmate not to discuss it, according to his lawyer.




Attorney Bruce Barket described his client — murder suspect Nicholas Tartaglione — being told to "shut up" and "stop talking" about the Epstein case.




When Epstein died by suicide he was alone. But he had a cellmate earlier in his detention.




Barket complained more generally about conditions in the jail, which he said are "deplorable."

Jeffrey Epstein's jail guards warned his cellmate "there will be a price to pay" if he spoke out about the jail conditions and the financier's suicide, the cellmate's lawyer said in a letter.
Nicholas Tartaglione, the cellmate, and his lawyer Bruce Barket were told to "'shut up,' 'stop talking' and 'stop complaining' to name a few of the comments various guards have made," Barket said in a letter filed on Tuesday to federal judge Kenneth Karas at White Plains, New York.
The letter has been published in part by outlets including the New York Post, Fox News, DailyMail.com, and Rockland/Westchester Journal News.
