Justin Bieber

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.

This is the downside of being famous. Every crazy person in the world either wants to kill you or accuse you of fathering their child. Justin Bieber may need to be extra careful with the people around him. Because of his fame his life is in grave danger. He can't walk alone in a park or dine alone in a restaurant like an ordinary person. That's sad.

The amount of hate this little ass-streak generates never ceases to amaze me. The Pope himself would probably like to kick him in the nuts.

I think some of the tmz poster are just as sick in the head. I might not be a fan, but I would never wish harm on anyone. I bet 9/10 guys would be willing to switch places to live that type of lifestyle.

I think TMZ helps by not banning these posters.

Okay...so why would these two guys just be down for murdering? All murderers are criminals, but not all criminals are murderers. I find it hard to believe that these guys were going to just murder and mutilate a celeb that some inmate was obsessed with, and just for...what? Fun? Doesn't make sense.

Has to be false. Castration involves a penis.
