Hit Men Plotted to Kill Justin Bieber

Ordered by convicted rapist and killer from prison


In terrifying celebrity news today, two hit men from Albuquerque, New Mexico have been arrested for plotting to kidnap, kill, and castrate pop star Justin Bieber at his Madison Square Garden show.

Forty-one-year-old Mark Staake and his nephew, 23-year-old Tanner Ruane, were allegedly recruited by Dana Martin—a convicted rapist and killer Staake had met in prison — to carry out a total of four murders, including those of Bieber and his bodyguard. Martin gave the two specific instructions on how to castrate their victims and strangle them with a paisely-print necktie—Martin's personal calling card.

Martin was apparently obsessed with Justin Bieber and even sported a tattoo of the singer on his leg.
