Vegas Democrat Arrested in Death of Investigative Journalist

Over the weekend, longtime Las Vegas investigative reporter Jeff German was murdered outside his home.

Little information was revealed other than he had allegedly been in an argument with someone late Friday night.

He was then found early Saturday morning having been stabbed to death outside his home.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) has taken a suspect into custody.

Under Arrest

Reports started to surface on earlier this week that a local Las Vegas Democrat official was a person of interest.

That official ended up being Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles.

Police were able to track Telles down when pictures of a vehicle surfaced they believed belonged to the suspect.

Reports are now breaking that police have also found DNA evidence to link Telles to the murder.

Telles appers to have been upset over a recent story by German.

The report cited a hostile work environment in Telles’ office, which surely contributed to Telles losing his re-election bid in June.

German must have been working on another story on Telles, as he had also recently requested text messages between Telles and several county officials.
