Aleading Democratic Party official representing Nevada’s Clark County was arrested on suspicion of murder in the stabbing of an investigative reporter whose work is believed to be responsible for the politician’s recent primary election loss. The news comes after years of the national media claiming Republican, Trump supporters were presenting threats to news reporters.
The arrest of leading local Democrat, Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles, occurred on September 7th, just one day after Las Vegas police asked for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in the case.
The previous Saturday, Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German was stabbed to death while he was believed to be pursuing a potential follow-up story about Telles. His previous reporting had revealed that Telles was responsible for a hostile work environment plagued with bullying, favoritism, and inappropriate relationships.
German, 69, had recently filed additional public records requests between Telles and three of his staffers in the office, which oversees the estates of deceased individuals.
