The Las Vegas dancer who was allegedly slain by her ex-boyfriend died of â€œasphyxiation due to neck compression,â€ and her death was officially ruled a homicide, the coroner said Tuesday, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The dismembered body of 31-year-old Debora Flores-Narvaez was found in two tubs filled with concrete in a downtown Las Vegas home Saturday.
Flores-Narvaezâ€™s ex-boyfriend, 32-year-old Jason â€œBluâ€ Griffith, was arrested Saturday and charged with her murder. Prosecutors added two new charges against him Tuesday — felony battery constituting domestic violence (strangulation) and destroying evidence.
A Metropolitan Police Department report released Monday said Griffith, a dancer for the Cirque du Soleil show â€œLove,â€ told police that Flores-Narvaezâ€™s death was â€œa heat of the moment thing that happened,â€ the Review-Journal reported.
Griffithâ€™s roommate, Louis Colombo, told authorities he witnessed Griffith choking Flores-Narvaez on Dec. 12 after the couple began to fight. Colombo said he left the home, then returned to find Flores-Narvaez dead. Colombo reportedly helped Griffith hide the body. He has not yet been charged in the case.
Flores-Narvaez, a cast member of Luxor’s “Fantasy” show and a formerÂ Washington Redskins cheerleader, was last seen leaving her Las Vegas apartment at about 7:00pm local time Dec. 12. She was reported missing by her roommate two days later after she failed to show up for a dance practice and a show.
Griffith, who appeared via video feed before a north Las Vegas justice of the peace Tuesday to hear the charges he is facing, is being held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center. He was expected to appear at a hearing Wednesday.
