Walter Meyerle, the tattoo artist convicted of sexually assaulting 15 children over more than a decade, is under investigation for possible witness tampering, Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler said Friday.
"My office is looking into the question of whether he or his agents may have sought to do illegal things to influence the proceedings against him," Heckler said. "It is an ongoing investigation; county detectives are involved."
Heckler declined to say when the investigation started and whether a county grand jury is investigating Meyerle. The grand jury and its proceedings "are secret, and it's not proper to say anything about what it's doing," he said.
