Two men allegedly plotted to k!ll, castrate Bieber - The Globe and Mail
Police have arrested two men in the U.S. in connection with a plot to murder and castrate Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber.
The alleged murder plot, which was orchestrated down to the type of instruments that would be used both for the castrations and the murders, was outlined in an affidavit signed by Clinton Norris, an agent with New Mexico State Police.
he police have since stated they believe Mr. Bieber was one of the men targeted.
Mr. Norris writes that he was passed information alleging multiple counts of conspiracy to commit murder on Nov. 20.
The plan is alleged to have started with Dana Martin, an inmate at the Southern New Mexico Corrections Facility.
Mr. Martin is also the person who foiled the plan, according to Mr. Norris.
He wrote that Mr. Martin, who is facing consecutive life sentences for his participation in a murder in Vermont in 2000, asked to speak with a sergeant at the prison in mid-November and said “he believed there were two male individuals on their way to Vermont to commit two murders.”
One of the individuals is alleged to have been Mark Staake, a former inmate where Mr. Martin is currently incarcerated.
Mr. Martin said he was able to convince Mr. Staake to participate in the plot because he is “a very good manipulator.”
The other accused is Mr. Staake’s nephew, Tanner Ruane.
Mr. Staake was arrested on an outstanding warrant in New Mexico.
Police arrested Mr. Ruane after recording phone calls between him and Mr. Staake in which they discussed in detail the castration and murder of their first two victims or “dogs,” as they called them.
Just over a week after his first conversation with police, Mr. Martin explained the plot in further detail, saying the third intended victim, “J.B.” was the ultimate target.
Police drafted an arrest warrant for Mr. Ruane on Nov. 20 and he was arrested shortly after. In his car police found a pair of pruning shears and information about the whereabouts of the first two victims.
The affidavit refers only to “J.B.,” who Mr. Martin told police was the ultimate target because he “has a measure of fame” and Mr. Martin had become infatuated with him.
The investigator writes in the affidavit that Mr. Martin, who has a tattoo of J.B. on his leg, began to plot the kidnap and murder of J.B. after numerous attempts to communicate with him went unreturned.
“Mr. Martin stated he was seeking a measure of notoriety so that there would be people outside of prison who would know who he (Mr. Martin) was,” writes Mr. Norris.
He also writes that J.B.’s body guard would be victim four since Mr. Martin said he would “need to be k!lled” to get to J.B.
