Justin Bieber was allegedly at the center of a convicted killer’s plot to castrate and murder the teen pop star. The reasons why Dana Martin wanted to have Bieber murdered remain a mystery. Martin is currently behind bars in New Mexico.
Martin was not planning on castrating and killing the teeny-bopper himself, KRQE News reports. The man who supposedly plotted to kill Justin Bieber is serving two life sentences for raping a Vermont teenager in 2000. Martin allegedly recruited another inmate at Las Cruces prison to do the deed, TMZ notes.
New Mexico inmate Mark Staake was allegedly courted to kill and castrate Justin Bieber once he was released from the Las Cruces prison. Staake reportedly recruited his nephew, Tanner Ruane, to help carry out the murder of the pop star. The pair supposedly plan to commit the crime when the teen singer played at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Martin is reportedly obsessed with Justin Bieber and even has a tattoo of the singer on his leg. Before Mark Staake and Tanner Ruane could fulfill the task of killing the young singer, he blew the whistle on his alleged accomplices. Staake was reportedly arrested on outstanding warrants in Vermont.
Tanner Ruane reportedly made it to NYC with a bag of tools which could have been used to murder Justin Bieber. The pruning shears found in Ruane’s bag were presumably to be used during the castration process. Ruane was picked by the NYPD before he had a chance to get close to Bieber and placed under arrest.
