Audio After The Jump
A bizarre plot by a convicted murderer to have pop star Justin Bieber castrated and killed was uncovered back in December. Now a phone call placed by the inmate to the would be hit men has been released.
Dana Martin, who's currently serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl hatched a plot to have Bieber and his bodyguard murdered. Martin enlisted the help of former inmate pal, Mark Staake, and Staake’s nephew, Tanner Ruane to carry out the crime.
In the phone call released today by TMZ, Martin details plans for the hit.
“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.”
They further discussed how Bieber and his bodyguard would be castrated then killed.
“We went and bought the hedge clippers," said Ruane. "You're gonna give me five large ($5,000) for each one I get."
Martin instructed the pair to suffocate the 18-year old singer and his bodyguard.
"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.”
Being the idiots that they are, the plan was foiled because the phone calls were monitored. 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
