(Las Vegas, NV) — A key prosecution witness is due to testify in the trial of a former Cirque du Soleil performer charged with killing, dismembering and trying to dispose of the body of a dancer in the Luxor hotel-casino’s “Fantasy” revue. The Trial continues Tuesday for Jason “Blu” Griffith in the December 2010 slaying of 31-year-old Deborah Flores Narvaez.
Griffith has pleaded not guilty. He could face life in prison. Flores and Griffith dated for several months. The defendant’s former roommate, Louis Colombo, told police he saw Griffith with his hands on Flores’ neck, and later helped Griffith move tubs of concrete with Flores’ remains to a vacant home.
Griffith was arrested in January 2011 after police found Flores’ remains in two concrete-filled containers. Colombo isn’t charged with a crime.
FM News 100.5 talked exclusively with Deborah’s father, Carlos Flores, on The Las Vegas Morning News. He says he wants Debbie to finally rest in peace spiritually. He says his own father died a couple months after Debbie, and he has exhausted all his tears. Flores says, at the trial, he is taking it all in and hoping for justice. Deborah’s friend Rion Morgan also talked about how they are feeling.
