A 30-year-old Las Vegas pros­ti­tute, Laris­sa Gar­cia, was trag­i­cal­ly mur­dered dur­ing a $2,000 sex ses­sion with a 35-year-old hotel guest, Jason Kendall, an Army veteran. 

Accord­ing to police reports, Kendall “snapped” and stran­gled Gar­cia for 10 min­utes before hav­ing sex with her and leav­ing the hotel room.

The inci­dent occurred on June 12 at the Palms Resort in Las Vegas. Kendall ini­tial­ly called 911 to report an over­dose, but med­ical per­son­nel deter­mined that Gar­cia had been assault­ed and stran­gled, not overdosed. 

Sur­veil­lance footage from the hotel showed Kendall meet­ing Gar­cia in the lob­by around 4 PM, and then leav­ing the hotel alone an hour later.

Kendall lat­er turned him­self in to the police on June 28 and con­fessed to the mur­der. He is now being held in cus­tody with­out bail, fac­ing charges of open mur­der, sex­u­al assault, and battery.

Gar­ci­a’s death has shak­en the city of Las Vegas, known for its thriv­ing pros­ti­tu­tion indus­try. The sin­gle moth­er of two was described by her friends as a “bright light” and a “warm, car­ing woman.”

Her moth­er, Kristie Pike, has been flood­ed with trib­utes and mes­sages of love and sup­port on social media.
