NV: Vegas Pol Arrested In Stabbing Death Of Investigative Reporter

Source: Deadline

“A top Las Vegas-area public official was arrested tonight in connection with the fatal stabbing of a well-known investigative journalist on Friday night, according to multiple news reports. Clark County Public Administrator Robert ‘Rob’ Telles was taken into custody at his home this evening by a SWAT team as part of the investigation into the killing of Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German. The arrest came after police spent hours searching Telles’[s] home, where they confiscated a vehicle that resembled the SUV tied to the stabbing suspect: a red or maroon GMC Yukon Denali. … Earlier this year, German reported on strife in the Public Administrator’s office that included ‘complaints of administrative bullying, favoritism and Telles’[s] ‘inappropriate relationship’ with a subordinate staffer,’ according to AP. That reporting was reportedly in part responsible for Telles’[s] primary election defeat in June.” (09/07/22)
