Justin Bieber 'murder plotters planned to sell testicles for $5,000'

By
The men accused of plotting to kidnap, castrate and murder Justin Bieber last November planned to sell the star's testicles for $2,500 (£1,600) each, it has been claimed.

Convicted killer Dana Martin is alleged to have recruited former fellow inmate Mark Staake and the man's nephew Tanner Ruane to carry out the crime after becoming "infatuated" with Bieber and taking his failed attempts to correspond with the singer as a personal "slight".

In phone calls obtained by KOAT 7 News in Albuquerque, Martin can be heard explaining to Ruane that Staake is "going to kill the pit bulls and you're going to castrate them", with "pit bulls" being the gang's code word for Bieber, according to police.

The two then mention "hedge clippers" as their choice of instrument for the castration and agree on a price tag of "five large" for Bieber's testicles.

A police report read: "When Mr Martin asked what Mr Staake had bought to castrate the victims, Mr Ruane stated that he had bought a pair of hand-held hedge clippers.

"In response to Mr Staake's reluctance to follow through with the castrations, Mr Ruane stated he was going to do it and get 'five large for each one I get'. Mr Martin confirmed that Mr Ruane was going to get $2,500 per testicle.

''Mr Martin suggested hiding them somewhere, such as the engine compartment, so as to avoid detection should they get pulled over."

Ruane and Staake were arrested before they could carry out an attack on Bieber - believed to have been planned for after a show in New York's Madison Square Garden - after Martin himself told police of the alleged plot.

Staake was arrested in Vermont due to outstanding warrants, while Ruane was later arrested in New York after police found murder equipment on his person

Martin, who has a tattoo of Bieber's face on his leg, is currently serving two life sentences in Las Cruces prison, New Mexico for rape and murder.
