JUST IN: Democrat Official Robert Telles Arrested in Connection to Murder of Las Vegas Review-Journal Reporter Jeff German

Democrat Clark County official Robert Telles was arrested on Wednesday evening on suspicion of murder in connection with the fatal stabbing of Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German.

Jeff German, 69, was found stabbed to death in front of his home Saturday morning.

Police officers on Wednesday were spotted at the home of Robert Telles, a county official that Jeff German had been reporting on recently.

Telles, a Democrat, lost his re-election bid in June’s primary after Jeff German exposed the hostile work environment in the Democrat official’s office.

Jeff German had also recently filed a public records request on emails and text messages between Telles and others in his office, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

Telles was not happy about Jeff German’s investigative reporting and even lashed out at the journalist on Twitter in June.

 

Telles reportedly had an “inappropriate relationship” with a subordinate staffer.

Telles has denied the accusations.

Review-Journal reporters confronted Telles after police towed his burgundy SUV.

He had no comment.

Police dressed in tactical gear arrested Telles Wednesday evening and wheeled him out of his home on a stretcher.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported:

Less than a day after asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in the stabbing death of Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative reporter Jeff German, police arrested Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles on Wednesday on suspicion of murder, Sheriff Joe Lombardo said.

Hours earlier, Las Vegas police interviewed Telles and searched his home.

By 6 p.m. Wednesday, police had returned in tactical gear and were surrounding the home while Telles remained inside. About 30 minutes later, he was wheeled out of the home on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance.

The morning search marked a stunning development in the police investigation because it indicated for the first time that the killing might be related to German’s work exposing public wrongdoing. German’s investigation of Telles this year contributed to the Democrat’s primary election loss, and German was working on a potential follow-up story about Telles before he was killed.

“The arrest of Robert Telles is at once an enormous relief and an outrage for the Review-Journal newsroom,” Executive Editor for the Review-Journal Glenn Cook said Wednesday. “We are relieved Telles is in custody and outraged that a colleague appears to have been killed for reporting on an elected official. Journalists can’t do the important work our communities require if they are afraid a presentation of facts could lead to violent retribution. We thank Las Vegas police for their urgency and hard work and for immediately recognizing the terrible significance of Jeff’s killing. Now, hopefully, the Review-Journal, the German family and Jeff’s many friends can begin the process of mourning and honoring a great man and a brave reporter. Godspeed, Jeff.”
