The former boyfriend of a missing Las Vegas Strip burlesque dancer and former Washington Redskins cheerleader ambassador was arrested Saturday on suspicion of murder.
Jason Griffith, 32, is being held in the disappearance of 31-year-old Flores-Narvaez, who was last seen leaving her home in Las Vegas on Dec. 14.
She never showed for a rehearsal of the nightly show she performed in, “Fantasy” at the Luxor hotel and casino, prompting coworkers and family members to become concerned for her well-being.
Flores-Narvaez told police Griffith beat her while she was pregnant with the couple’s child, reported the Associated Press.
Flores-Narvaez’s 1997 Chevrolet Prism was found abandoned in a parking lot in the northeast section Las Vegas, shortly after she went missing.
