Police: Dancer from Md. dismembered

By Associated Press

Police say a former boyfriend accused of killing a Las Vegas burlesque dancer choked her, chopped her into pieces and then covered her naked body in cement.

A Las Vegas police arrest report made public Monday alleges 32-year-old Jason Griffith killed 31-year-old Deborah Flores-Narvaez after an argument at his home Dec. 12.

Griffith was arrested Friday after police say they found Flores-Narvaez’s body in a downtown Las Vegas home.

He is due in court Wednesday on a murder charge.

Griffith’s lawyer, Patrick McDonald, didn’t immediately respond Monday to a message.
Flores-Narvaez was reported missing Dec. 14 after she didn’t show up for work at the burlesque show “Fantasy” at the Luxor hotel-casino.

Flores-Narvaez moved to Las Vegas to become a dancer. She previously lived in Maryland, where she served as an ambassador for the Washington Redskins in 2007, a non-performing position that sent her into the community.

Did anyone expect anything different? It was obvious from the beginning who the killer would turn out to be. And not to disrespect anyone, why is she referred to as a past redskin cheerleader? She was not a cheerleader.

And really who did the police think did it a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader? Of course the boyfriend did it and should've been locked up from day 1.

furiousGeorge4 and PubicEnemy1 are right!

IT'S ALWAYS THE BOYFRIEND! (Even when it's not.) Just like on TV!

How very sad. My condolences to Ms. Flores-Narvaez' family.

This is so sad. I was in Las Vegas 2 weeks ago and mentioned this to my sister. We figured the end result would be something like this but still hoped for a better ending. I can't imagine what her family is going through. My condolences to her family and friends.

It takes a sick individual to choke someone to death and an even sicker one to dispose of a body in such a manner. There can never be adequate earthly justice for such despicable acts.

Why can't guys just let the woman go?? So she didn't want you anymore, or pissed you off or said something to upset you. It's sooo much easier to find a new girlfriend on the outside than be forced into being someone's girlfriend on the inside. Sick bastard!

I still don't understand why this is a local news story. People leave the DC area all the time and every once in a while one of them is killed or involved in some sort of tragic incident, but we don't see continuing news coverage. Is it because she was affiliated with the Redskins? If so, that really shows how overly caught up we are with a football team. The initial reports were that she was a cheerleader, but the role is not being called 'ambassador' which is a non-performing position and I wonder if the story would have appeared at all if she was simply another low-level former team employee?

Guys like this have to be the dumbest people in the world. Who did he think they would look at first? And you know he probably lied through his teeth until they hit him with the undeniable evidence. Then the toughest of guys suddenly want to see their mama.

Mama caint hep ya now boi!

Well, hopefully he'll be someone girlfriend in prison and he gets eventually tired with his boyfriend and the boyfriend kills him and chops him up into little pieces and then mails his body parts to his parents. I call that fair justice.

Chopped into pieces and in cement?? If they dig further maybe they'll find Jimmy Hoffa!!
