A convicted murderer, Dana Martin, obsessed with Justin Bieber recruited a former inmate to try to castrate and kill the pop star. Dana has been spending time behind bars since being arrested for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl in 2000. His newest teenage target appears to be the Canadian singer.
Dana met Mark Staake, a fellow inmate at Las Cruces state prison years ago. While there, Staake agreed to enlist his own nephew in order to go through with Martin’s murderous plot.
Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane were to first travel to Vermont, where they would murder two of Martin’s former acquaintances using his trademark paisley ties to strangle the unidentified targets.
From there, Staake and Ruane would go to New York and look for Justin Bieber and his body guard when the teen star was in the city for a performance at Madison Square Garden.
Martin had become obsessed with the Justin and has a tattoo in the boy’s image on his leg.
For whatever reason, Martin was actually the one to tell police about the plot, turning over Staake and Ruane before either of them had the chance to fulfill their plans.
Staake was arrested in Vermont, while Ruane was found in New York with a set of pruning shears.
Neither of the men were charged with an attempted assassination, however, and Ruane was let go while Staake was arrested for outstanding warrants.
