A plot to allegedly murder and castrate Justin Bieber has been derailed by investigators according to Albuquerque’s KRQE. According to reports, a man named Dana Martin, who is currently serving two life sentences at a New Meixco prison for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl in Vermont 12 years ago, was attempting to recruit a fellow inmate at the state prison to help him carry out a series of murders, one involving JB himself.
Apparently the inmate, Mark Staake, and his nephew Tanner Ruane were going to carry out their plot during his sold-out concert at NYC’s Madison Square Garden last November, according to law-enforcement officials. The duo were going to strangle not only Justin, but his bodyguard as well, then castrate and murder them (in case you don’t know, castrating is when a male’s testicles are cut off).
Luckily, Mark was arrested in Vermont on outstanding warrants before he could perform the terrifying act. KRQE reports that Mark is “obsessed” with the “Baby” singer and even has a tattoo of him on his leg, and confessed to the whole scheme to cops after he was arrested. The suspicions were later confirmed when investigators listened in to some recorded phone calls between Dana and Mark as they discussed the murder plot,
Justin’s long time manager Scooter Braun gave a statement to US Weekly and assured them that, “We take every precaution to protect and insure the safety of Justin and his fans.”
