A man identified as Mark Latunski has reportedly confessed to the disturbing 2019 killing of 25-year-old hairstylist Kevin Bacon, who he met on the dating app Grindr.
Bacon was found hanging naked by his ankles from the ceiling in Latunski’s home in Bennington Township, Michigan, on December 28.
He reportedly met Latunski on Christmas Eve 2019 after the two allegedly connected on Grindr, a dating app for gay men. He was reported missing the following day. MLive reported that Bacon texted roommate Michelle Myers at about 6 p.m. the night he went missing to say he would be out for a while.
“I’m just in shock about the whole thing. It’s just hard to process right now.”
According to court documents, Mark Latunski had a twisted sexual fetish which involved lots of violence and unfortunately for Kevin Bacon, he was made the sacrificial lamb in a crime that shook the local community. He allegedly cut off a part of Bacon’s genitals and ate.
Bacon’s dad Karl Bacon told the Associated Press in a January 2020 interview;
“Evil does exist and it touched us.
“It’s gut-wrenching to hear the details and we’re beside ourselves.
“What was released shows that Kevin had a dark side. He obviously got into something that he wasn’t prepared for.
“I’m going to remember him how everyone else remembers him, that he’s a good person who was passionate and cares for people.”
Latunski’s estranged husband told WJRT last week that he “didn’t act like there was anything amiss” after the murder.
