Ex-cheerleader's boyfriend arrested
The former boyfriend of a missing Las Vegas Strip burlesque dancer and former Redskins cheerleader has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Jason Griffith, 32, was booked Saturday in the case involving the disappearance of Deborah Flores-Narvaez, Las Vegas police said. He was being held without bail in the Clark County Detention Center.
Police spokesman Bill Cassell declined to comment on the case, including whether Flores-Narvaez's body has been found. He said investigators would release other details about the case at a news conference scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday.
Flores-Narvaez's sister, Celeste Flores-Narvaez, of Atlanta, did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
The 31-year-old Deborah Flores-Narvaez was reported missing Dec. 14 after she didn't show up for a rehearsal of “Fantasy,” the nightly burlesque show at the Luxor hotel and casino where she worked.
She reportedly was last seen on Dec. 12 by Griffith, who originally was not named as a suspect by police.
Flores-Narvaez and Griffith had been dating for about a year when police responded to a domestic violence call involving the couple on Oct. 22. Flores-Narvaez told police that he beat her while she was pregnant with his child. Griffith told police the couple had been in an argument but denied hitting her.
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.
