Well this is, um, this is an insane story, to put it mildly:
A public official who was the focus of stories written by slain Las Vegas investigative reporter Jeff German was arrested in the case Wednesday on suspicion of murder, according to a report.
Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles was taken into custody after authorities searched his home for hours earlier Wednesday, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported, citing county Sheriff Joe Lombardo. ...
Telles lost a Democratic primary in June, due in part to German's investigative stories about his conduct in office, the report said. Some of the allegations against Telles included "emotional stress, bullying, and favoritism," according to the outlet.
I mean...assuming this is true, you're telling me this guy murdered a journalist because of some damaging stories about him? That's the motivation?
Like, I mean, I get it. You lost the primary. It stinks. You're probably angry. But, like, pick yourself up, get another job, move on with your life, don't go insane.
I guess if he did it he was already pretty far gone though. You don't just wake up one day and decide to be someone capable of murder. By the time you've gotten there you've been sick for a while.
Let's hope the truth comes out and justice is served one way or the other.
