Justin Bieber's Madison Square Garden performance last month could have ended in tragedy, if plans by a deranged serial killer had come to disturbing fruition.
According to a report by New Mexican news outlet KRQE, convicted murderer Dana Martin, who is currently serving two life sentences for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl in 2000, wanted to carry out the killing. He intended to partner with another inmate, Mark Staake, to do the dirty deed by proxy after Mark was released.
The plan, formed with Mark's nephew Tanner Ruane, involved kidnapping Bieber and his bodyguards and strangling them with a paisley tie before castrating them. Why a paisley tie? That's Dana Martin's creepy murder trademark.
Odder still, Dana has a tattoo of Biebz on his leg. Such is the extent of his murderous obsession with the pop idol.
Tanner Ruane managed to get as far as New York with the tools (including pruning shears) but was captured by police before he could turn Justin into a castrati.
On a slightly lighter note, here's Justin taking a licking on a recent episode of Family Guy (not that we advocate violence against Biebz)!
