In two surveillance images released by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the possible suspect is seen wearing a wide-brimmed hat and bright orange shirt. The person “was potentially casing the area to commit other crimes before the homicide occurred,” police said.
“The Review-Journal family is devastated to lose Jeff,” said Executive Editor Glenn Cook, according to the paper. “He was the gold standard of the news business. It’s hard to imagine what Las Vegas would be like today without his many years of shining a bright light on dark places.”
The police department said officers were called to the scene Saturday just after 10:30 am and arriving officers and medical personnel pronounced the victim deceased at the scene.
The police department did not identify German in its news release but said that “the identification of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death” would be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
News84Media has reached out to the Clark County Coroner’s Office for more information.
The homicide division of LVMPD is investigating, the release said.
