Canadian Singer, Justin Bieber escaped a gruesome assassination plan meant to kidnap, castrate and strangle him according to orders from jailed killer, Dana Martin.
According to a US court case, the obsessed jailed killer contracted the job to 41 year old Mark Staake and Tanner Ruane, his 23-year-old nephew. Martin and Staake met in prison.
The two hired assassins from New Mexico were supposed to kill four people which includes Justin Bieber and his body guard.
According to Martin’s statement to the police, his plans was to kidnap Justin Bieber and his bodyguard and strangle them with paisley ties. They were then supposed to be castrated and his offer was $2,500 for each of the men’s testicles.
But according to a KRQE-13 TV in New Mexico, Staake was arrested in Vermont on November 19 on outstanding warrants for previous offences before any murders could take place.
The following day, Staake was secretly recorded by police while he was on phone discussing the alleged plot with Ruane. This led to the arrest of the 23 year old accomplice in upstate New York.
According to court documents, when Ruane was arrested a day later, a pair of pruning shears and documents containing the identities of the intended victims were found in his possession.
According to a statement released on Wednesday night by Justin’s management team, “We take every precaution to protect and ensure the safety of Justin and his fans.”
Speaking to the New York Post, Kristin Cashman, the mother of 23 year old Ruane said the allegations were ridiculous.
“My son was not planning to kidnap or hurt anyone. He has nothing to do with any of this,” she said.
“This has got to be some crazy thing Dana Martin made up. Everything about it is made up.”
Martin, who is described as being obsessed with the Canadian singer has Justin’s tattoo on his leg. He was reported to have told the police about the alleged plot.
Staake and Ruane face two counts of conspiracy to commit murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated battery.
