It seems almost too incredible to be true; but, according to The Sun, a crazed lunatic attempted to castrate and then kill Justin Bieber. The police arrested two men in connection to the foiled plot. One of the men had pruning shears in his vehicle. The police were able to intercept two phone calls that lead them to the suspects.
The Sun goes on to write, “The men – Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane – are said to have been hired to carry out the twisted killing by Dana Martin – 978 years in prison for rape and murder. The sick attack was due to have taken place in November when Bieber was performing concerts in New York.”
The Sun maintains that the two men planned to kill him by mutilating his body and then strangling him with a necktie.
The police said the Mark Staake became acquainted with Martin when he was in Las Cruces prison in New Mexico. Included in the plot to kill Bieber was the pop star’s bodyguard.
Theage.com writes, “The plan began to fall apart when a newly-freed Staake was arrested in Vermont on outstanding warrants, leaving Ruane to try and carry out the Bieber killing himself, according to New Mexico authorities.” “Ruane was to allegedly tasked (sic) with cutting off the victims’ testicles.” The plot included both the testicles of Bieber and his bodyguard. “Police intercepted phone calls between the men, including a call from a disappointed Mr. Ruane to Martin, allegedly telling him that the plot had not been carried out.”
Bodyguards are necessary for celebrities since there are always crazed people who want to kill them.
I was curious to know if there were any other heinous celebrities murders and I found:
The most heinous celebrity murders of all time
According to toptenznet, “Bob Crane best known for his role as Colonel Hogan in Hogan’s Heroes-was found bludgeoned to death in his apartment with a mysterious murder weapon that remains unknown to this day”.
No one can forget the death of Nicole Brown Simpson. This is a case of someone becoming famous only after their death and only because their alleged murderer-in this case one-time football great O.J. Simpson -was more famous still. The brutal stabbing death of Simpson’s ex-wife-along with her friend Ron Goldman (who apparently was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time) resulted in one of the most bizarre and racially charged trials of the century
Sharon Tate, star of “The Valley of the Dolls” was the wife of Polish director Roman Polanski. She “became the unfortunate subject of one of the most famous and gruesome murders in modern history-rivaling even that of Jack the Ripper. She was accosted in her Los Angeles home on the evening of August 8, 1969, by members of the Charles Manson gang, she, along with four other people in the house, were strangled and/or bludgeoned and stabbed numerous times.”
From the website crime library we learn about the Struggling young actress, Elizabeth Short, nicknamed the Black Dahlia who was found murdered in a field her mutilated body was cut in two. “Fascination with her life and especially her gruesome, violent, unsolved murder continues to this day.” This cold case has been on the books for over 60 years.
Foiled murder attempt on Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber is a teen pop star. Even though I am a baby boomer and far removed from that generation. I do have a grandson of that age who listens to Justin’s songs. Murders are always terrible, but as any mother or grandmother knows, we feel more emotional when a young person is robbed of his/her life. Justin Bieber’s death would be in the same class of heinous celebrities crimes had the murder plot been carried out. He is so lucky to be alive today.
