Popular Instagram model Mizz DR arrested in connection to murder of Fort Lee man found in trunk

NEW YORK (PIX11) – Popular Instagram model and video vixen Mizz DR, real name Diana Escotto, was arrested Thursday in connection to the murder of a Fort Lee man whose body was found in the trunk of a car in the Bronx last month.
Escotto, 24, has been charged with hindering arrest in the murder of Jordan Johnson. Escotto has been featured in a number of rap music videos, including alongside Queens rapper 50 Cent.
Johnson was reported missing Jan. 14 after his girlfriend came home to find their Fort Lee apartment burglarized. One day later, Johnson’s body was found in the trunk of a black BMW parked along  East 211th Street and Tryon Avenue in the Bronx. An autopsy concluded Johnson was strangled to death.
Robert Martinez and Andre Jamal Thompson have both been charged with Johnson’s murder. Courtney Evelyn, 30, and Dyrol Evelyn, 25, have also been charged with hindering arrest.
Prosecutors say Thompson lured Johnson to a Fort Lee apartment before killing him. Thompson then used the dead man’s phone to lure his girlfriend out of their apartment with text messages that appeared to be from Johnson.  Once she left, the apartment they shared was ransacked of jewelry, cash and other items.
