A Democrat County official has been arrested in Nevada and charged with the murder of Las Vegas investigative reporter Jeff German, that latter of whom was about to expose the politician for corruption.

Democrat Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles (left in the photo above), has been accused of the stabbing death of the reporter who was discovered dead on Saturday, Sept. 3.

ABC News added that Telles, whom the reporter had been investigating for corruption, had self-inflicted stab wounds when authorities arrested him following a “standoff with SWAT at his home.”

Per the Las Vegas Review Journal:

The stunning development came a day after Las Vegas police asked for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in the case. An early morning search of Telles’ home on Wednesday provided the first indication that the Friday killing might be related to German’s work exposing public wrongdoing. The investigative reporter was pursuing a potential follow-up story about Telles in the weeks before he was killed. [Emphasis added]

German spent months reporting on the turmoil surrounding Telles’ oversight of the public administrator’s office. [Emphasis added]

The 45-year-old Democrat lost his re-election bid in the primary after German’s findings were published. German also had recently filed public records requests for emails and text messages between Telles and three other county officials: Assistant Public Administrator Rita Reid, estate coordinator Roberta Lee-Kennett and consultant Michael Murphy. Lee-Kennett was identified in previous stories as a subordinate staffer allegedly involved in an “inappropriate relationship” with Telles.

Police say that Telles attacked the reporter outside his home in a confrontation over the articles being written exposing Telles’ corruption.

Since it was a Democrat killing a journalist, you’ll find that this story will quickly go away.
