“Dancing on Her Grave: The Murder of a Las Vegas Showgirl,” Carolina Sarassa’s first book, was released this week.
The MundoFox correspondent and anchor co-authored the book with retired investigative journalist and best-selling author Diana Montane.
“Dancing on Her Grave” is a first-hand account of the murder of Debbie Flores, an attorney who left her professional career to become a Vegas showgirl. Flores was murdered and dismembered by her boyfriend in 2010.
Carolina was the first reporter to break the story and developed a connection with the key players, including Flores’ roommate, parents and former boyfriends.
The book, released April 7, chronicles details of the crime, investigation and trial, but also underscores the importance of more awareness of one of society’s most urgent social problems – domestic violence.
Before joining MundoFox’s national network news in Los Angeles, Carolina was an anchor for KINC, the Univision affiliate in Las Vegas and a correspondent for Univision network’s “Primer Impacto.”
In addition to having worked for and contributed to multiple publications, such as Miami News, Éxito and The Miami Herald, as an investigative journalist, critic and magazine editor, Diana wrote the true crime bestseller “I Would Find a Girl Walking,” about serial killer Gerald Stano and “Invisible Killer: The Monster Behind the Mask.”
She also co-authored “The Daughters of Juárez,” about the femicides in that border city, with Univision anchor Teresa Rodríguez and the autobiography of talk-show host, Cristina Saralegui, “My Life as a Blonde.”
