Las Vegas investigative journalist Jeff German killed
The Review-Journal's investigation of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority led to a criminal investigation and a change of leadership. The investigation also led the Review Journal to report on the mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay. The Aladdin Hotel and its ties to the Detroit mob in the late 1970s were the focus of an audio project. It was a partnership between the newspaper and downtown's The Mob Museum. German told the story through extensive interviews with prosecutors and elected officials. He also reported on a shooting that killed 60 people and himself. His investigation found that the state officials had been lax in forcing casinos to comply with a 2003 state law.
