Justin Bieber Murder Plot Details Revealed

North Stars
February 20, 2013

While Justin Bieber appeared not to have a care in the world during his recent family getaway, the vacation is definitely over as creepy new details from the murder plot against him emerge.

Back in December, an inmate and two fugitives were busted for plotting to kidnap and kill the 18-year-old “Boyfriend” singer while he was in New York City. Now, audio of phone calls made from a New Mexico prison in November reveal scary details of the plan.

Police say that prisoner Dana Martin, who is serving time for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl, was the mastermind, according to a report on ABC News' Albuquerque affiliate KOAT. He was working with a former inmate pal, Mark Staake, and Staake’s nephew, Tanner Ruane, to carry out the violent act against the young star.

During one phone call placed from the Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility, Martin asked Ruane, “Did [Staake] go over the Bieber thing with you?" Ruane replied, “Nuh-uh. The way I like to work, dude – I like to know as little as possible. He's gonna use one of the things you gave him, and then he's gonna take care of it.”

That wasn’t the worst part. One element of the plot involved castrating Selena Gomez’s ex and his bodyguard.

“We went and bought the hedge clippers," said Ruane – who asked for “five large,” or $5,000 – for each kill.

They also discussed suffocating Bieber and his hired muscle with a scarf.

"Tie it really tight, and that cuts off all the oxygen, and then tie it in the back again, really tight,” Martin instructed. “That seals the deal.”

However, before sealing any deals, the plan fell apart. Not only were the prison phone calls monitored, but Staake and Ruane were arrested by border patrol agents after making a wrong turn into Canada. All three men now face two counts each of conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit aggravated battery.

A New Mexico State Police affidavit that was previously made public stated that Martin’s motive stemmed from an infatuation with Bieber. The inmate, who is serving two life sentences, has a tattoo of the singer, but became a disillusioned when he sent him a letter from prison and Bieber never responded.

Meanwhile, Bieber has emerged for the first time since his family vacation. The singer turned up in London yesterday and hit the nightclub scene pretty hard, showing up at three different hotspots. At the end of a long night, Bieber – rocking some pink kicks – was driven away by his security team with two young ladies in tow.

It is rumored he is in town for the BRIT Awards, which take place Wednesday night, but he has not yet confirmed that he will be attending. Coincidentally, Gomez is doing a European tour to promote “Spring Breakers” … just a Eurorail ride away!
