Someone wanted to murder / castrate Justin Bieber?

Yeah, I think everything about this can be summarized in the title, so WHAT THE WHAT. Let’s just dive into the insanity, courtesy of TMZ

According to KRQE News, convicted murderer Dana Martin — currently serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl in Vermont in 2000 — recruited a fellow inmate at Las Cruces prison named Mark Staake to carry out the murder once Staake was released.

It’s unclear when the plot was originally hatched, but Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane — whom Staake had later recruited to help — reportedly planned to execute the murder plan in NYC last month, where Bieber was performing at MSG.

Martin reportedly told police the plan was to kidnap Bieber and his bodyguard and strangle them with paisley ties, Martin’s calling card. Ruane was then going to castrate them. According to KRQE, Martin is obsessed with Bieber and even has a tattoo of Bieber on his leg.

Thankfully, it never happened because that would mean crazy people were able to outsmart the best bodyguards money can buy, and also Crazy McStupidMurderPants went ahead and ratted himself out. But still … yeesh. I mean, Justin Bieber isn’t perfect, but murder? FRIGGIN’ MURDER? Hells to the naw.
