Alex Johnson & Luna Almaz: Couple Who Had Threesome with Ivana Smit Shortly before She Died

As the mystery of model Ivana Smit’s death seems to take twists and turns, the spotlight continues to shine on the couple who last saw her alive, Alex Johnson and Luna Almaz. But who are they and what was their relationship with Ivana Smit?

This is a look at the cryptocurrency entrepreneur and his educator wife, and what happened before Ivana Smit plunged to her death in Kuala Lumpur.

The Up-and-Coming Couple

Before Smit’s death, Alex Johnson and his wife, Luna Almaz, were part of high society in Kuala Lumpur, but not necessarily well known.

44-year-old Alex Johnson was born in the United States but has been living in Malaysia for over a decade. He is the co-founder of a company called Everus. The company recently launched its own bitcoin, and are working on an app that will help users follow and trade in cryptocurrencies.

31-year-old Luna Almaz came from a slightly different world. Born in Kazakhstan, her father was a lawyer and she was educated in England at Staffordshire University. While she dabbled in modeling, Almaz reportedly works in education now.

The couple met in 2010 and have a four-year-old daughter.

“Progressive Marriage” and Relationship with Smit

Questions in regards to Smit’s relationship with Johnson and Almaz began to arise almost immediately after her death. What was she doing in the hotel room with the couple in the first place? An independent autopsy was performed on Smit’s body and allegedly discovered the presence of male DNA.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, the couple categorize their marriage as “progressive.” In this case, meaning that they occasionally bring in a third party to bed with them.

Johnson and Almaz claim to have met Smit around Halloween 2017, and that there was an immediate attraction between Almaz and Smit. While the couple say that most of their previous relationships of this type tended to be brief, with Smit, it ended up lasting for a number of weeks.

Johnson, Almaz, and Smit used WhatsApp to have direct messaging with one another, and had relations on a few occasions, including November 4, 2017. Johnson and Almaz stated that they thought Smit was 26, not 18.

Were They Involved in Smit’s Death?

It must be made clear, currently, there are no charges against either Johnson or Almaz in relation to Smit’s death. But due to certain pieces of information coming to light, allegations against Johnson and Almaz persist.

One of the most common questions is the matter of the state Smit was in when she fell to her death. Toxicology reports have high levels of a number of drugs and alcohol in Smit’s system, and CCTV footage shows her being unable to walk after leaving the club with Johnson and Almaz on December 6, 2017.

However, there is footage on cameras that later capture Smit being able to walk on her own by the time they threesome reached the CapSquare Residences, where Johnson and Almaz lived. They arrived at the apartment at approximately 5:44 a.m.. At around 8:00 a.m., Almaz took her daughter to school. When she returned at 8:15 a.m., she and Smit began to talk and eventually, the threesome began to engage in sex.

Afterward, Almaz and Johnson went to sleep. Almaz says that at approximately 10:15 a.m., she awoke to find Smit wandering the lounge area of the apartment, talking to herself and giggling. After that, she went back to sleep and did not wake again until 1:25 p.m. At that point, Smit disappeared.

Almaz just assumed that she went to a modeling shoot she previously spoke about. It wasn’t until 5:00 p.m. that she discovered what occurred, when police arrived at the couple’s door to ask about the dead girl several floors down.

The Aftermath

Johnson and Almaz were initially arrested right away, but released without charges not too long afterward. Despite being cleared in Malaysia, the couple is still under suspicion elsewhere.

After an independent Dutch coroner discovered bruises on Smit’s arms, her family hired a private detective and a lawyer to look further into the matter. According to the detective, in other parts of the world, Smit’s death would still be treated as a homicide.

Due to the controversy, Johnson and Almaz have been getting numerous death threats. Opening up about their marriage to the Daily Mail seemed like the only way to maybe reduce those threats, and tell their side of the story.
