Bounty placed on Justin Bieber's testicles

Dec 14 2012, 3:28am CST | by

The crazed fan who wanted to kidnap Justin Bieber intended to place a $2,500 bounty to save each of the pop star's testicles.

Dana Martin - who is currently serving two unrelated life sentences in jail in New Mexico - plotted to kidnap Justin, his bodyguard and two unrelated victims in order to castrate and strangle the 18-year-old singer.

Dana - who was obsessed with Justin and was furious when the 'Baby' hitmaker didn't respond to his letters - hired his then-Las Cruces prison inmate Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane to murder the Canadian star with a paisley tie but only after they had removed his genitals with garden shears, and his plan was to strike in New York last month when Justin was performing at Madison Square Garden.

The Sun newspaper has obtained the arrest warrant, which states: "Mr. Martin stated he had attempted to solicit correspondence on numerous occasions and that Victim 3 [Justin] never returned in kind.

"This perceived slight made Mr. Martin upset and, coupled with Mr. Martin's perception of being a 'nobody' in prison, led him to begin plotting the kidnap and murder. Mr. Martin stated he was seeking a measure of notoriety so that there would be people outside of prison who would know who he was."

The 'Boyfriend' singer was spared after Dana - who has a Justin tattoo on his leg - let slip his intentions to prison wardens. Police also coincidentally happened to stop accomplices Mark and Tanner where they were driving in Vermont on their way to commit the first two murders.

During a phone call between the accomplices, the court documents reveal that: "Mr. Ruane stated he was going to do it and get 'five large for each one I get'. Mr. Martin confirmed that Mr. Ruane was going to get $2,500 per testicle."

They reportedly expressed their "disappointment" that they couldn't go through with the murder plot. A newly-purchased pair of Fiskars Durasharp pruning shears were later discovered in Tanner's car.
