Two charged with killing Jordan Johnson; three with impeding arrests.
She didn’t look much like a rap video superstar in her mug shot, but one of the five people charged in the kidnap-slay of Jordan Johnson -- the Jersey 24-year-old found strangled in his trunk on a Bronx street -- was none other than MizzDR, a popular Instagram model and DJ.
MizzDR, a/k/a Diana Escotto, 24; and siblings Courtney Evelyn, 30, and Dyrol Evelyn, 25 -- all of Manhattan -- were charged last week with hindering the arrest of the two primary suspects in Johnson’s Jan. 14 death .

Robert Martinez, 26, and Andre Jamal Thompson, 25, both of Worcester, Mass., are charged with felony murder, robbery and burglary in the case, said Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said.
Escotto’s arrest lit up the very social media tools that made the video vixen so popular.
Even other hip hop stars had their say about MizzDR, who appeared in a 50 Cent video.

Johnson was killed by Martinez and Thompson in a Fort Lee apartment, Molinelli said, after they brutalized the victim, and stole his phone and car.
They then used the dead man’s phone, texted his girlfriend to gt her to leave the home she shared with the victim, and then robbed their house of jewelry and cash, officials said.
Johnson’s body was found in the trunk of his black BMW on East 211th Street and Tryon Avenue in the Bronx. He had been strangled, officials said.
