LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Debora Flores Narvaez is being remembered as driven and determined to succeed in the competitive but tightly-knit community of Las Vegas Strip dance performers.
About 100 friends, family members and dance troupers turned out Friday at the very stage at the Luxor hotel-casino where Flores Narvaez last performed to mourn the slaying of the woman they called Debbie.
"Fantasy" burlesque show producer Anita Mann recalled Flores Narvaez as a perfectionist, eager to make her mark in the Las Vegas entertainment world.
Flores Narvaez's sister promised to seek justice from her killer.
Flores Narvaez's body was found last week -- sawed in pieces and encased in concrete -- in two plastic bins at a Las Vegas home.
Her former boyfriend has been charged with strangling and dismembering her.
