I watched NG last night and some good coverage on this case.She was all over the guy
LC who assisted Blu.She was saying he should be charged whether he helped LE or not.
I agree,this guy went along and helped him with the body.He is just as guilty!So sick and
disgusting.Celeste said she is standing on her own to take care of everything so her family
could grieve.My heart breaks for her and her family

Sister of slain dancer removed from courtroom after outburst
A North Las Vegas courtroom erupted in an outburst of emotion Wednesday morning as the sister of a slain Las Vegas dancer shouted obscenities at her sister's ex-boyfriend during his arraignment on murder charges.
"You (expletive) rotten Jason! (Expletive)! For what you did to her!" Celeste Flores Narvaez screamed at Jason Griffith at the end of the court proceeding.

Dancer's sister yells at suspected killer in court
A shackled Jason “Blu” Griffith appeared in court Wednesday wearing a blue jumpsuit during his arraignment after being charged with killing Las Vegas showgirl Debbie Flores-Narvaez. The dancer’s sister was present at the hearing and yelled at Griffith from her seat.

While her courtroom outburst was spontaneous, Celeste now says it was wrong.

“I would never want to disrespect the judge and if I could get his number, I would personally call him and tell him I’m sorry. It’s not my character to be disrespectful about the law or anything like that.”

A memorial service for Debbie is planned for Thursday night from 6 to 9 at St. Viators Catholic Church. A second service will be held Friday at the Luxor showroom, one of the many places the local dancer shined.

“… [she was] a very passionate person,” Celeste said of Debbie. “Passionate in every way: passionate for life, for dance, for helping people.”

Police say there was a history of domestic violence between Debbie and Griffith, something her family didn’t know until she was already gone. Now, Celeste has this message for other women who may be suffering in silence:

“There is a way out. There is always a way out. It doesn’t have to be like this.”

The family is taking Debbie’s body back to Puerto Rico for burial. They set up an account to help pay for the expenses. Any money left over will be donated to Shade Tree, a local shelter for battered women.

He won't plead gulity....and it's going to get really ugly and nasty, imo. They are going to tear into Deb's past with every minute detail they can find. I knew this was going to happen and have been holding my comments, but again...it's Vegas. I feel so bad for Celeste because this nightmare will continue for her and her family through out this case.

It won't save him from punishment in killing her, but indeed the DP...

Please don't throw fruit at me...........I just expressed what's been on my mind since they found her.

From Fairy's link....his defense states:

Afterwards, deputy public defender Jeff Banks said the emotional outburst by the victim's sister would not affect Griffith's defense.

Banks said relationships are "a two-way street" and "our defense of him (Griffith) is going to be aggressive, vigorous and thorough."

Banks said he will be reviewing the couple's volatile history together, including at least three known incidents where authorities responded to calls of domestic violence between the couple.
Two of the incidents did not result in an arrest, Las Vegas police said.

They'll bring up the other RO's against her and the whole schmear of all the stories.

I just simply will never comprehend it.
Actually, cats and primates are two that come to mind that are ruthless when stalking and killing prey. They "play" (torture) before they finally kill them, if they don't perish from the playing.

I don't understand the charges. Why do they include the felony battery? I don't recall seeing that in other cases. I mean he murdered her. Also it doesn't say what degree of murder they are charging him with. And seeing what he did to her body why isn't there some additional charge for that?? I really think too, that this woman whose condo he wanted to store the remains at should be charged with something. I guess LC won't be charged as he cut a deal for immunity, but he should be.
I don't really understand them either and wonder about the charges for mutilation of a corpse. LC was given leniency....so I think some charges will be made and they have to make sure he wasn't more involved than he stated.

If the condo friend lied to LE, then I could see obstruction charges. But, it's not against the law to not say anything to anybody about what you know or saw..even a murder...only when you are asked...and lie.

It seems LC should be charged with accessory after the fact.

As to the condo owner yeah you're probably right she wasn't asked, so she didn't lie to LE. But ethically it just seems so WRONG to me. Here is Debbie's sister looking so hard for her during the holidays and this woman knows she is dead and tells no one????

Family of murdered dancer sets up memorial fund for domestic violence victims:

Celeste has set up a fund to take donations in Debbie's name. Anything left over from funeral expenses will go to The Shade Tree's Survivor Services Center.

"That's there memorial tribute to her, to help others," Marlene says.

http://www.ktnv.com/story/13835034/f...olence-victims

I feel so bad for Celeste and Debbie's parents. But the fact that Celeste wants to help other domestic violence victims now at such a terrible time in her own life makes me think she will try to make something positive out of her sister's senseless and horrific murder. I can definitely see her becoming an advocate or DV victims in the future. I hope she does!

Anita Mann: Debora Flores Narvaez was part of ‘Fantasy’ family:

The last rehearsal was Dec. 12, the last time anyone in the “Fantasy” cast saw Narvaez alive. When she didn’t arrive as scheduled the next night for the debut of the show featuring Sisqo, the immediate word was that something had gone terribly wrong. There was no sensible reason for her to be anywhere but the Luxor on that Monday evening.

I hope she does also. It is heartbreaking to see the grief on the faces of Debbie's sister and family. MOO

Expert Sees Pattern in Domestic Violence Victims:

Though it may seem like common sense to walk out of an abusive relationship, victims feel like they are in control. Richter says victims will often take abuse several times before deciding enough is enough.

"The sad average is seven times, and often it is something from the outside that helps them understand what the danger is," she said.

Slain Vegas dancer remembered by family, friends

"She didn't know this, but I envied her in so many ways," Celeste Flores Narvaez told more than 80 friends and family members who gathered to remember her sister, Debora, at a Mass at St. Viator Catholic Church. "She danced, traveled, was single, living the life."

So their going to let this person who dismembered a body walk around like he did nothing!!! Unbelievable..........Who is this guy and why??

Quote:

Police learned the details of the alleged murder from Louis Colombo, Griffith's roommate, who told investigators he helped Griffith dismember the body and hide it.
Clark County District Attorney David Rogers said Colombo will likely not face charges.
"Not only did he help us recover the body, he also told us the circumstances of the killing," Rogers said. "There are lot of times that we have to negotiate with sinners to get to the devil."

As repulsive as it seems to let Louis walk free without him there would have been no quick resolution to this heinous crime.

I just hope that his daughter is ok after all she was there at the apartment when the intial assault took place. No little gal deserves to witness that kind of violence.

I have a hard time believing Louis that Debbie would just stay with her ex after he pulled him off her while he was choking her. That makes no sense to me. It is more believable that he failed to pull him off and felt somewhat responsible and helped him hide the body. I just have a hard time believing his story that all was well when he left after there was a serious choke attempt. So strange.

JMO.

I just hope the child's mother will fight to have his visitation rights removed. This is not a person who should be around children.

I knew he wasn't going to be charged with murder, that was the deal they struck with him. But I can't believe they are not charging him with accessory after the fact or desecration of a corpse. Disgusting that he could participate in something so gruesome and be walking around like the rest uf us...free as a bird.

IDK, seems like they had the GPS from the truck to tell them where the body may have been. Once they discovered that and how sloppy they were, forensics could have given them everything they needed along with circumstantial evidence. I think LE got took the easier venue.

I'm never going to Vegas!

Does anyone know or remember a case where someone like this got off for dismembering a body??

Love to hear NG's two cents on this one.
