In December it was reported that Justin Bieber was the target of a foiled murder plot, and now new details about the plan have emerged with audio tapes of the conspirators’ phone calls.
Police say convicted criminal Dana Martin, who is currently serving two life sentences for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl in Vermont in 2000, devised a plot to kill Bieber at his sold-out Madison Square Garden show in November. Martin had recruited former fellow inmate Mark Staake, who in turn recruited his nephew Tanner Ruane, to strangle Bieber and his bodyguard and then castrate them.
In the newly released audio tapes, Martin and Ruane can be heard discussing a strategy on how to murder the teen pop star. Martin mentions the purchase of "hedge clippers," which are thought to have been intended to castrate the singer and his bodyguard, reports Koat 7.
