Lifetime Movie: Death of a Vegas Showgirl Synopsis

When a popular Las Vegas showgirl disappears, her loving sister arrives in Sin City to search for her. But things take a shocking turn when the investigation into her disappearance reveals that Debbie was last seen with a male Las Vegas dancer with whom she had a sizzling but torrid love affair.

Deborah Flores-Narvaez, also known as Debbie, disappeared in 2010 in Nevada. Debbie Flores-Narvaez was in Nevada working as a Las Vegas showgirl at the Luxor Hotel and Casino. Police were quickly directed to her African-American ex-boyfriend Jason “Blu” Griffith, who was also working as a dancer, according to the Las Vegas World News.

Deborah Flores-Narvaez and Blu Griffith had a rocky and unstable relationship that was punctuated by anger, sex, laughter, fighting, and more sex. But their steamy love affair and Debbie’s exotic looks were not enough to keep Jason “Blu” Griffith faithful. That was the whole problem in the relationship. Debbie Flores-Narvaez wanted her man’s loyalty and respect, and it seemed that Jason continuously disrespected her by cheating on her with other women and playing with her emotions.

The body of Debbie Flores-Narvaez was found dismembered in two plastic bins. She was nude, and cement had been poured on top of her. In the end, it was Jason “Blu” Griffith’s friend who told police where the former dancer’s dead body could be found.

If you take a look at Deborah Flores-Narvaez’s background, you’ll learn that she wasn’t just a pretty face with a nice body. She was intelligent and accomplished and had a couple of degrees to prove it. However, she wasn’t smart enough to stay away from Jason “Blu” Griffith, a cheating mama’s boy who cared nothing for her.

Jason Griffith’s mother doesn’t believe that her son is a cold, vicious killer. Instead, she allegedly believes that Flores-Narvaez forced her son to kill her due to her own aggressive nature. If the movie sticks close to the true story, it will include Debbie’s own brushes with the law. According to ABC News, at least three people, including two men and one woman, had filed for a protective order or restraining order against her.

Family and friends who loved Deborah Flores-Narvaez say it doesn’t matter what she did. She still didn’t deserve to be lured to Blu’s home, dismembered, and thrown away in a bin like garbage. She was someone’s sister and daughter, and they loved her.

When this story first broke, some members of Debbie’s family didn’t want books or documentaries made about the case. In the Facebook group “Love and Remember Debbie Flores-Narvaez,” the following message was posted.

“It has come to my attention that writers to include certain TV channels are in the process of interviewing to produce TV media stories or book in reference to Debora Flores tragic event. If anyone knows who/whom are involved. I ask that you provide me with information so I can contact them and have them “STOP” any such activities. My daughter’s death is not for PROFIT and that includes family, friends or anyone else that is not the mother or father on a mutual decision together. I have been approached several times, and it is sad just how they act as scavengers to get a story, or a book just to get ratings to their viewers or to make a profit. My daughter Deborah would not even think about doing such thing to profit from someone else’s tragedy. If you had a loved family member knowing you will never see any more alive that was taken from you in a violent way, ‘Would you like approve someone else to make a book or TV media activity to profit from it?’”

But with the making of the Lifetime movie, it appears that their minds were changed over time, realizing that the death of Debbie Flores-Narvaez needed to be told so it could help someone else.

Lifetime Television’s Death of a Vegas Showgirl is produced by Howard Braunstein Films, Laurie Drive Productions, and Nantucket Productions with Scott W. Anderson, Roselyn Sanchez, Eric Winter, and Brian D. Young as the executive producers.
