Murder of a Las Vegas Showgirl
August 15, 2012
Las Vegas showgirl Deborah Flores-Narvaez was allegedly strangled by her boyfriend, Cirque Du Soleil dancer, Jason “Blu” Griffith. According to the police report, after she was killed, Jason and his roommate put Deborah’s body in a plastic storage bin and poured cement over it. When the bin began to leak, they allegedly used a sledgehammer to chip her body out of the cement, and then dismembered it with a hacksaw, placed it in two plastic bins, covered it again with cement and sealed it in the closet of an empty house. Deborah and Jason had a history of domestic violence claims in their relationship, and now Jason sits in jail charged with her murder. His mother, Charlene, and sister, Samantha, say Jason wouldn’t hurt anyone, and if he did kill Deborah, it must have been in self-defense. Charlene says she believes Deborah was the violent one, and that her son’s video recording of Deborah proves it. Deborah’s mother, Elsie, and sister, Celeste, who believe Jason killed Deborah, meet Jason’s family for the first time on Dr. Phil’s stage. And, Jane Velez-Mitchell, host of her self-titled show on HLN, weighs in on the investigation.
