Astrology influencer stabbed partner to death and threw children from moving car over solar eclipse

An astrology influencer, allegedly motivated by fear of the solar eclipse, went on a horror killing spree, stabbing her partner to death and pushing her children out of a moving car before committing suicide by ramming her vehicle in a tree.

Danielle Johnson, 34, went on a rampage in Los Angeles on April 8 – the same day a rare total solar eclipse phenomenon plunged parts of the US into darkness.


In the days leading up to the attack, Johnson used social media to express his belief that the solar eclipse would be the “epitome of spiritual warfare.”

Posting under the name “Ayoka,” the astrologer influencer had more than 100,000 followers and often reposted conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic rhetoric on her page.

Before Monday’s rampage, she had posted messages on X telling people to “wake up; the apocalypse is here” and warned his followers that they must “choose sides”.

In the early hours of Monday morning, hours before the eclipse, police said they went on a killing spree.

The Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement that around 3:40 a.m. Monday, Johnson got into a verbal argument with her partner Jaelen Chaney, 29, at their home in the 6200 block of Variel Avenue .

The fight escalated when Johnson became violent, stabbing Chaney to death.

Johnson then allegedly took her two young children, aged nine and eight months, and fled the scene in a dark-colored Porsche SUV.

The Porsche was seen traveling on Highway 405 near Howard Hughes Parkway.

Around 4:30 a.m., the two children were then ejected from the vehicle while it was moving.

The nine-year-old survived but suffered moderate injuries from the fall.

LAPD Lt. Guy Golan told Fox11 the eight-month-old was struck by an oncoming vehicle in the middle of the road and died instantly.

“When the 9-year-old girl fell in the middle of the highway, she injured herself and dropped the baby,” Mr. Golan said.

“And then, in a race to get off the highway and not get hit by traffic, the nine-year-old managed to reach his shoulder, but the infant was hit by traffic. This is how the baby succumbed to his injuries in the middle of the highway.

Johnson then continued driving, accelerating the vehicle to speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour, before crashing into a tree in the town of Redondo Beach around 5 a.m.

Johnson died from her injuries.

Today, the nine-year-old is the only survivor of his mother’s horrific killing.

A few hours later, around 7:35 a.m., Chaney’s body was found at the couple’s home when neighbors noticed the front door was open.

Police said a neighbor came in to check on the family and found Chaney dead in the apartment.

A neighbor told ABC7 she discovered the gruesome scene when she spotted a trail of blood leading to Johnson’s house.

“Their door was wide open, there was blood on the floor leading to their apartment, then a trail down the hallway leading to the elevator, and I saw blood on the walls,” the unidentified neighbor said .

Police have not yet clarified what motivated Johnson to commit the massacre.

Mr. Golan said The Associated Press that while investigators have looked at her social media posts, they don’t consider the eclipse a contributing factor “because we just don’t know why she did what she did.”

“We took all the possible facts, but without being able to interview him and without having something more tangible than a post on X, I don’t know what weight we can give to someone (by saying) that he “There’s an apocalypse and attribute it to one of the most horrific murders we’ve had in Los Angeles,” he added.

LAPD investigators said Chaney and Johnson had been dating for about three years and lived together, with Golan adding that there had never been any reports of domestic violence between the couple, CBS reported.
