Tonight Saturday (February 17, 2024) “CBS 48 Hours” Peter Van Sant Reports in “The Assassination of Jeff German”

The February 17 2024 edition of “CBS 48 Hours” starts at 10PM ET/PT on CBS. Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative reporter Jeff German was a local legend  renowned for his reporting on infamous mobsters, crooked politicians and murderers. But in September 2022, it was the reporter making headlines. German was ambushed and stabbed to death by an unknown assailant outside his home. Correspondent Peter Van San reports on the case in 48 HOURS: “The Assassination of Jeff German,”

The Review-Journal staff members started working nonstop on one of the most important stories of their careers: who killed Jeff German? They came up with a short list of people who may have threatened him. One of the names on that list was Clark County public administrator Robert Telles. German had written four articles about Telles’ alleged hostile behavior at the office.

German first learned about the accusations of a toxic workplace from Clark County employees Rita Reid, Aleisha Goodwin, Jessica Coleman and Noraine Pagdanganan.

“He was a horrible, a horrible human being,” Rita Reid told 48 HOURS. “Monster is the right word.”

The women told German that Telles harassed, bullied and physically intimidated them. They also said he was having an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate in the office and gave her power and privileges beyond her job title. When their complaints to the county were ignored, the women took matters into their own hands. They followed the alleged lovers to their suspected rendezvous spot: a parking garage.
