Steve Petito accused the attorney of being “as guilty and complicit” in what he calls a “massive cover-up,” reported Radar.

Taking to his Instagram, Steve reposted an article with the headline reading, “Laundrie family lawyer releases statement after FBI positively identifies Petito body,” before taking aim at Bertolino.

“As far as the law is concerned this law firm may be immune due to attorney/client privilege,” he wrote. “But in the eyes of the public you are as guilty and complicit with this massive cover-up and stalling tactic.”
