According to police, Jeff German and the suspect got into a fight before the deadly stabbing.
In an effort to identify the suspect in the stabbing death of regional investigative journalist Jeff German, the Las Vegas City Police Department has made more information regarding the incident public.
The suspect was captured on camera while walking, which is one of the new details.
A German man, 69, was killed outside his home on Bronze Circle, close to Tenaya Way and Vegas Drive, at around 10:30 am on Friday, September 2, according to Capt. Dore Koren of the Metro Homicide and Sexual Offenses Bureau.
When a neighbor discovered a German and dialed 911 on Saturday morning, the police finally arrived.
Prior to the murder, police said they think the culprit was scouting the area for other crimes. They claimed that while the suspect was outside, a German emerged from his home, approached him, engaged them in conversation, and then stabbed him.
The police also unveiled a picture of a car they think is connected to the suspect at the briefing. According to Corinne, the vehicle is believed to be a red 2007–2014 GMC Yukon Denali equipped with a sunroof, a baggage rack, and chrome handles.
Although the description is general, Corinne highlighted that anyone who sees a car that matches it and thinks it may be connected to the incident should contact Metro Police or crime stoppers.
Police first made the suspect’s images public on Monday. On Friday, September 2, between 8 am and 1 pm, anyone in the area with a security camera was requested to review their film to see whether they captured the suspect.
