He wanted to castrate him...
TMZ reports a convicted murderer made a phone call to a hit man and described a plan to murder and castrate Justin Bieber and his bodyguard.
The phone call was obtained by KOAT 7 News in Albuquerque, New Mexico and was made from a Las Cruces prison last November by Dana Martin. Martin is serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl.
Martin was said to be obsessed with Justin Bieber. His voice is the first on the tape. He is calling Tanner Ruane, who is accused of conspiring to carry out the order since Martin was behind bars. He is the nephew of a former Las Cruces inmate named Mark Staake. Martin recruited Staake to help him after his release in the fall.
Martin said to Ruane: "[Mark's] going to kill the pit bulls and you're going to castrate them."
"Pit bulls" is the code for Bieber and his bodyguard. Ruane mentions the "hedge clippers" was planning to use for the task. He also said to use Bieber's paisley tie to commit the murder. He added: "Tie it really really tight. Knot it in the front once, really tight, put it in a knot. That cuts off the oxygen, and then tie it in the back again, really tight. That seals the deal."
The murders were supposed to happen in New York City soon after the call took place, while Bieber was performing at Madison Square Garden. The two were stopped by police before anything happened.
