Bieber Murder Plot Phone Audio Released!

You may remember the strange story of the foiled kidnapping-and-murder plot involving Justin Bieber that broke back in December.  It’s almost too weird for words.

Dana Martin, a convict serving two life sentences for the rape and murder of a 15 year-old girl, had come up with a plot to kill Bieber around the time of a show at Madison Square Garden in December.  Together with fellow former inmate Mark Staake, Martin recruited a guy named Tanner Ruane (Staake’s nephew) to first (a) strangle Bieber’s bodyguard; (b) strangle Bieber; and © castrate them both.

You read that correctly.

Martin was a major Bieber fan.  One can only wonder what the other inmates at the Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility made of the Bieber tattoo on his leg.  The plot collapsed when Staake and Ruane took a wrong turn, ended up in Canada and were arrested by border patrol agents.

Now audio of some of the phone conversations leading up to everything have been released.
