Vt.inmate who wanted to kill Justin Bieber plotted anthrax scare

Post date:



BARRE, Vt. — Police say a Vermont inmate who hatched a plot to kill Justin Bieber was behind an anthrax scare at a courthouse where he was sentenced for killing a 15-year-old girl.

The Barre courthouse on Wednesday received an envelope containing white powder and a note claiming it was anthrax. It carried the return address of the Delaware prison where 48-year-old Dana Martin is serving 35 years to life for the 2000 murder.

Police Chief Tim Bombardier said Thursday that Martin told prison officials the envelope contained foot powder.

In 2012, when Martin was being held in New Mexico, he sent two men to kill Bieber, Bieber’s bodyguard and two other people in Vermont.

No one was hurt. Martin pleaded guilty to criminal solicitation to commit first-degree murder.

Bombardier says it’s unlikely Martin will be charged in the latest case.
