In December it was reported that Justin Bieber was the target of a foiled murder plot and castration, and today KOAT 7 News in Albuquerque has released a taped recording of a call made between Dana Martin and two conspirators. Martin is currently serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl.
According to Police Martin is the mastermind behind the murder plot and directed former jailhouse friend, Mark Staake and Tanner Ruane to carry out the plot.
"Did he go over the Bieber thing with you?" Martin asked Ruane in a taped phone conversation.
"Nah. The way I like to work dude, I like to know as little as possible," Ruane responded. "He's gonna use one of the things you gave him, and then he's gonna take care of it," continuing Ruane said, "We went and bought the hedge clippers. You're gonna give me 5 large ($5,000) for each one I get."
The men planned on using the clippers to castrate Bieber and his bodyguard in New York City, this according to prison authorities. Martin also instructed the men to suffocate the victims with his signature paisley scarf.
"Tie it really tight, and that cuts off all the oxygen, and then tie it in the back again, really tight. That seals the deal," Martin said.
The two accomplices were arrested for making a wrong turn into Canada before they had a chance to carry out the orders.
They are now facing multiple charges.
