Call it the Justin Bleeder plan. A convict hired two gunmen for a celebrity murder/ mutilation hit.
Martin offered Staake and Ruane a $2,500 bonus for castrating the four victims. The two men also were supposed to strangle the victims with neckties, in the same way that Martin killed Florucci.
“Reference was made to the type of neck tie to be used,” the affidavit states, recounting a monitored phone call between Martin and Ruane. “Mr. Martin stated that a paisley tie needed to be used because that was what he (Mr. Martin) had used previously.”
Ambitious fellow, this Martin:
Staake told the police that Martin had said he was responsible for 25 murders across the country, including two in Vermont, the affidavit said.
