Remember the murder and castration plot against Justin Bieber back in December? A recording has now been released, revealing chilling details about that plot against the teen pop star.
We previously reported that New Mexico police confirmed that two men plotted to murder Bieber and his bodyguard after being ordered to do so by a convicted killer one of them met in prison.
Investigators found that Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane planned to murder Bieber and three others.
Now, TMZ reports that a phone call, which was obtained by KOAT 7 News in Albuquerque, New Mexico, featured convicted rapist Dana Martin talking with Ruane last November about the plot while in Las Cruces prison.
"[Mark's] going to kill the pit bulls and you're going to castrate them,” Martin says in the call, the "pit bulls" being the "Never Say Never" singer and his bodyguards.
He also said to carry out the murder using a tie. "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 plan was to carry out the murders in New York City, ahead of a concert at Madison Square Garden.
