Paso Robles clairvoyant’s murder victim identified
November 17, 2015
The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office has identified the man allegedly killed by a Paso Robles clairvoyant as 34-year-old Benjamin Derrel Terra.
Nicole Honait Luxor fatally shot Terra, also a Paso Robles resident, on Saturday at the Dancing Horse Retreat, according to the sheriff’s office. Luxor owns and operates the retreat, where she “communicates with animals and spirit guides and can ‘receive’ quintessential information about an individual’s soul,” according to Luxor’s website.
On Saturday afternoon, deputies responded to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon and discovered Luxor had barricaded herself inside her home. As negotiators attempted to convince Luxor to surrender, she fired multiple gunshots at law enforcement personnel.
Just before midnight, Luxor surrendered and deputies took her into custody unharmed. Deputies found the body of Terra at the home.
Luxor remains in San Luis Obispo County Jail with bail set at $1 million. Sheriff’s officials charged her with one count of murder and 36 counts of attempted murder.
An autopsy is pending to determine Terra’s exact cause of death.
