In the phone conversations, Martin was heard talking to Ruane, "Did he go over the Bieber thing with you?" Ruane replied, "The way I like to work dude, I like to know as little as possible. He's gonna use one of the things you gave him, and then he's gonna take care of it." Ruane told Martin that he had buy a garden shear. It was assumed to be used to mutilate the victims' body.
Martin and Ruane talked in codes, "He's going to kill the pitbulls, and you are gonna castrate them." According to the authority, pitbulls refer to Bieber and his boydguard. Ruane was going to suffocate him with Martin's signature tie, and then mutilate his body.
Martin even instructed the details of how to make the tie, "Tie it really really tight. Knot it in the front once, really tight, put it in a knot. That cuts off the oxygen, and then tie it in the back again, really tight. That seals the deal."
The uncle and nephew traveled from Vermont to New York, when Beiber was having a show in Madison Square Garden. However, before the two men could execute their plan, they were stopped by border patrol because they took a wrong way which headed to Canada. The uncle and nephew demanded USD 5000 for each person they killed.
