Murder Plot Against Justin Bieber & Bodyguard Thwarted

Blieber fans, brace yourself. A hit was recently put on your main squeeze, Justin Bieber.

Thankfully, the men involved have been detained and the threat eliminated.

Here’s the deets: A New Mexico prisoner named Dana Martin plotted to murder four people. Two of those four people were Justin Bieber and his bodyguard (the other two people named in the plot are not being released at this time). It’s believed that Martin was obsessed with Bieber, even getting a tattoo of the 18-year-old on his leg.

The plot was uncovered when Martin himself turned in his co-conspirators, Staake and Ruane. Staake was brought in by Vermont police on outstanding warrants, and his nephew was detained in New York with “murder tools and pruning shears.”

The only response to the murder plot from Bieber’s camp comes a brief statement from one of his reps that reads, “We take every precaution to protect and ensure the safety of Justin and his fans.”

Hmmm. Not too informative. Unfortunately, murder plots against celebrities is not a new threat. Last year, two men were charged with suspicion to plot murder against singer Joss Stone.
