Very sad to read this. Thanks for posting so we'd know it happened.

I listened to the podcasts he was involved with about the Mob. I would recommend.  Sad.  Sounds like a neighbor dispute.

Jeff was in my class at Marquette. Knew him back then and he was a great guy.

He reflected the best of what Marquette Journalism education is about. He was a gritty, hard-working reporter whose innate curiosity, hard work and strong education served the folks of Las Vegas very well.

John Vivian would have been extremely proud!

Well since he was "in the neighborhood to commit other crimes," he probably didn't want to leave fingerprints all over.

Thank you for sharing this dgies. Your tribute to Jeff German and his "Be the Difference" philosophy is beautifully worded.

A sad loss, not only for his family but for society.

why would robert telles, a person of interest, be wearing a white hazmat suit?  it must have been near 100 degrees...at least he was wearing flip-flops

DNA, video and physical evidence linking Telles to the murder. It’s crazy how an elected official went to this extreme. #donedeal on the conviction it looks like.

American journalists are under attack now more than ever. One of the first major steps toward authoritarianism is for would-be autocrats to try to paint the free press as "the enemy of the people."

I mean, I don't disagree. But this seems more flat out revenge.

Yes. Revenge for the journalist doing his job.

Right. But this wasn't about an authoritarian labelling him an enemy of the people.

Absolutely. It's sickening.

Got it. You took it off topic to make a point that had nothing to do with this incident.
