Justin Bieber

Convicted Killer Allegedly

Plotted Murder & Castration

A convicted killer locked up in New Mexico plotted to have Justin Bieber murdered and castrated ... but for some mysterious reason, he threw a wrench into his own plans -- this according to a local news report in New Mexico.

According to KRQE News, convicted murderer Dana Martin -- currently serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl in Vermont in 2000 -- recruited a fellow inmate at Las Cruces prison named Mark Staake to carry out the murder once Staake was released. 

It's unclear when the plot was originally hatched, but Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane -- whom Staake had later recruited to help -- reportedly planned to execute the murder plan in NYC last month, where Bieber was performing at MSG.

Martin reportedly told police the plan was to kidnap Bieber and his bodyguard and strangle them with paisley ties, Martin's calling card. Ruane was then going to castrate them.

According to KRQE, Martin is obsessed with Bieber and even has a tattoo of Bieber on his leg.

But for some reason Martin blew the whistle on his accomplices -- and Staake was arrested in Vermont on outstanding warrants before carrying out the deed.

Ruane made it to NY with a stash of tools -- including pruning shears -- but according to the report police intercepted him before anything happened, and placed him under arrest.

Poor kid is so innocent, it is funny to think that these crazed hardened criminals even care about him. Maybe they are satanists out to kill a popular Christian. It looks like God has his back then.

I don't think they are after the same type of women or anything. Why would they be jealous of this kid? It has to be evil jealous of good.

These guys really hate poor little Justin for some reason. You would think they would have a beef with some big bad biker from prison who messed with them, not some skinny little teeny bopper pop star. This is so funny that he bothers them that much.

Then it is funny in another way how they told a kid who loves Bieber so much that his face is tatooed on his leg about their plot, as if he woudln't try to protect his hero. Why do they even think about his genitals and all that? This so so funny in a weird way. Why are they jealous of Bieber's genitals?

I think these guys are satanic. Maybe they are mad at the appeal he has for women by being nice to women. They want women to love the badboy dirtbags maybe and Justin is ruining that for them. It makes me laugh.

Im from the town in VT where this happened and I knew Deandra the girl he tortured and killed and anybody who thinks this is funny in the least bit are really f'ed in the head. I would wish prison rape on him but you'd like that too much wouldn't you Dana. Oh yeah forgot rmention he raped a few teen boys around here too and taped it and rumor/truth has it that she was going to tell the world before this trash took her life. Never wanted to hear or see that name again but sadly it's on one of my favorite websites. Not your fault tmz but cmon people commenting don't applaud this guy he ruined a lot of lives around here and hate on bieber all you want but death and castration you guys are sick. RIP DEANDRE

People are disgusting. If you don't like someone's music you wish them death?! Saying that entitled brat needs to die? How is he an entitled brat? He works for what he has! If you don't like his work move on to something you like so you stop being miserable and wishing a CHILD death! Everyday I get more and more disappointed in human kind. Euw

Castration shouldn't be necessary. He's enough of a girl already.
Then again, it would ensure he wouldn't be able to procreate. That's a plus!
