( – Former Republican congressional candidate Dan Rodimer has been arrested after being identified as a suspect in an alleged homicide case. 

On Wednesday, March 6, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department announced that an arrest warrant had been issued for Rodimer in connection to a death that occurred on the Las Vegas Strip on Oct. 29, 2023. Rodimer reportedly turned himself in to the police and is now facing a murder charge.

In 2020, Rodimer ran for office and won the Republican primary in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District. However, he ended up losing the general election to Democrat Rep. Susie Lee. Former President Donald Trump endorsed Rodimer in the race at the time. 

Rodimer, who lost the general election by 13,000 votes, won the primary race by over 15 percentage points. He is an attorney. 

Las Vegas law Enforcement revealed that detectives have been investigating the death of Christopher Tapp, 47. Authorities responded to a call in late October 2023 about a man who was suffering from injuries caused by a “purported accident.” 

Tapp was transported to a hospital. However, he ultimately succumbed to his injuries. The homicide department was first informed of the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death on November 22, according to The Hill.

The arrest warrant for Rodimer was dated March 6 and was issued “on the charge of open murder.” The death was determined to be a homicide by the Clark County Coroner’s Office due to the blunt force trauma that the head of the victim had incurred.
