Top Las Vegas Official Arrested for Stabbing Investigative Reporter to Death

A high-ranking public official in the Las Vegas area was arrested tonight in connection with the fatal stabbing of a well-known investigative reporter Friday night, according to multiple reports.

Clark County Public Administrator Robert “Rob” Telles was arrested at his home tonight by a SWAT team as part of the investigation into the murder of Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German. The arrest came after police spent hours searching Telles’ home, where they seized a vehicle that resembled the SUV linked to the stabbed suspect: a red or brown GMC Yukon Denali.

Telles himself was observed this afternoon at his home. He was later arrested after a confrontation with police with what ABC News described as “non-life-threatening, self-inflicted stab wounds.”

Earlier this year, the German reported conflicts in the public trustee’s office that included “reports of administrative harassment, favoritism and Telles’ ‘inappropriate relationship’ with a subordinate employee, according to AP. That signal was reportedly partly responsible for Telles’ primary election loss in June.

The Public Administrator’s office deals with the assets of people who die without a will or family contacts.

German, 69, continued to report on the matter and filed public records requests via email and text between Telles and Deputy Public Administrator Rita Reid, Real Estate Coordinator Roberta Lee-Kennett, and consultant Michael Murphy. Lee-Kennett had previously been identified as the subordinate who would have an affair with Telles.

The German was found outside his area of ​​residence on Saturday morning. Police speculated that he had been stabbed in an altercation the day before. The coroner ruled that the German died of “multiple blunt force injuries” and the case has been ruled a homicide.
