In connection with the deadly stabbing of an investigative journalist, Las Vegas police raided a local politician’s house.
Jeff German, 69, a writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, was discovered dead outside his home in Nevada on September 3.
He is thought to have been murdered the day before.
On Wednesday morning, the Metropolitan Police Department raided the home of outgoing Clark County public administrator Robert Telles.
Telles, 45, lost a primary in June, shortly after German published a series of stories in the daily about Telles’ office, which included bullying and an “inappropriate connection” with a colleague.
Telles rejected the charges frequently on social media and his re-election website.
The Review-Journal reported on Tuesday that after police released security footage of a vehicle linked to the attack, a red or maroon GMC Yukon Denali, a car matching the description was spotted in Telles’ driveway.
Police also served warrants on the street where the killing took place.
