Reports: Hitman Hired to Castrate, Kill Justin Bieber

45-year-old prison inmate puts out a hit on teen star


A 45-year-old New Mexico prisoner reportedly has admitted to plotting, with others, to castrate and kill Justin Bieber.

The man, Dana Martin, currently is serving a prison sentence for using a paisley tie to strangle a 15-year-old girl to death. Martin reportedly convinced a fellow inmate, Mark Staake, to murder Bieber and then castrate him, according to the Los Angeles Times, as well as murder three other people.

Martin wanted to have Bieber killed because he sent letters to the singer to which Bieber did not respond, according to court papers.

However, Martin later changed his mind and told authorities about the plot. Staake, now released and recruiting for the hit, was arrested in November on violation of his parole. Staake’s nephew, Tanner Ruane, whom Staake had recruited into the plot, also was arrested. None of the four intended victims were harmed.
