A woman says she whistled Rob Telles, ex Clark County Public Administrator, and is now talking out about her guilt over Jeff German’s death. Telles was a journalist in Las Vegas, which she hired to tell her story.
“It was just a heartbreak. You’re trying to think of all the what-ifs and what could have been. And if we hadn’t gone to Jeff, would he be alive today?”Rita Reid shared her story with Inside Edition.
Telles is accused of stabbing German to death outside his Las Vegas home while disguised in an orange construction vest and wide-brimmed hat, after German reported on Telles’ alleged behavior in office.
German, a reporter with the Las Vegas Review-Journal started investigating Telles when Reid reached out.
“He listened to our story and felt that it had merit, but he didn’t promise any stories. He was going to take a look at everything and do his investigation,”Rita Reid shared Inside Edition
Telles was then accused of a number of crimes in a series of investigative documents. “bullying”Telles’ behavior at work and an affair between him and a woman who worked under his command. Both denied having an inappropriate relationship, and Telles called the articles a smear campaign.
Telles also blamed the exposé for his defeat in his bid for reelection last June.
In a jailhouse interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Telles said he couldn’t say how he would plead, because it’s still an “open case.”On Wednesday, he appeared in court.
“Jeff certainly didn’t deserve this at all. We were very proud to know him, and we admire his work,”Reid said.
