A phone conversation between two men who planned to murder and castrate Justin Bieber and his bodyguard has been released.
Convicted murderer and rapist Dana Martin, who was reportedly obsessed with Bieber, placed the call from a Las Cruces, New Mexico prison last November to Tanner Ruane, who is one of the men accused of conspiring to carry out the plot since Martin was behind bars.
Martin had also allegedly directed Mark Staake, who is Ruan’s uncle, to carry out the murders. “Did he go over the Bieber thing with you?” Martin asked Ruane in the taped phone conversation. “Nah. The way I like to work, dude, I like to know as little as possible,” Ruane replied. “He’s gonna use one of the things you gave him, and then he’s gonna take care of it.”
Police said the men planned to use hedge clippers to castrate Bieber and his bodyguard in New York City, and Ruane is heard in the recording saying he bought the clippers. Martin also instructs the men to suffocate their victims with his signature paisley scarf.
Ruane and Staake were intercepted by police before they could carry out their plot.
