One of its own has passed away, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal is in sorrow.

The publication reported that Jeff German, a journalist in Las Vegas for more than 30 years, was discovered dead outside of his house on Saturday morning. According to the newspaper, German had “stab wounds.”
Executive Editor Glenn Cook reportedly commented, “The Review-Journal family is devastated to lose Jeff.” “He served as the industry’s gold standard for reporting. Without his many years of illuminating shadowy areas with dazzling light, it’s difficult to image what Las Vegas would look like today.”

According to a department news release, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police (LVMPD) were summoned to the location on Saturday shortly after 10:30 a.m. local time.
According to the press statement, “arriving authorities and medical professionals pronounced the man deceased at the site.”
The police department did not name German in its statement, but it did state that the Clark County Coroner’s Office will disclose “the identification of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death.”
The Clark County Coroner’s Office has been contacted by CNN for more details.
According to the announcement, LVMPD’s homicide unit is conducting an investigation.
