A Michigan hairstylist named Kevin Bacon went missing on Christmas Eve. What’s left of him has been found in the home of a sick freak.
Part of him was missing — and reportedly — had been eaten.
The actor with whom he shares a name took a moment to acknowledge his namesake’s sad fate.
Footloose actor Kevin Bacon wrote Monday: ‘For obvious reasons I’m thinking this morning about the friends and Family of this young person Kevin Bacon.
‘His life was taken from him much too soon. His love was hair dressing. I bet he would have done a great job on this mess on my head. RIP KB.’
When detectives went to Latunski’s house, to put it mildly, they found a house of horrors complete with accusations of cannibalism. Bacon, 25, a hairstylist from Swartz Creek, went missing for several days before being found deceased in December 28 at Latunski’s home in Bennington Township, Michigan. Latunski was arraigned on December 30, but the new details were released on January 6, 2020.
A Morrice-area man has been formally charged with murder and mutilation in the death of 25-year-old Kevin Bacon.
Mark Latunski, 50, was arraigned in 66th District Court Monday, Dec. 30 on one count of open murder and one count of mutilation of a human body. He faces up to life in prison if found guilty.
…Police were led to Latunski’s Shiawassee County home after Facebook posts were relayed to the Clayton Township Police Department, according to Kevin Bacon’s dad, Karl Bacon.
Michelle Myers previously told The Flint Journal-MLive that Kevin Bacon, her friend and roommate, told her he was meeting with a man he met on a dating app around 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
Then at 6:12 p.m., Kevin Bacon texted Myers he was going to be out for a while, and he wasn’t sure when he’d be back, but that he was having fun, Myers said. His family became concerned when he didn’t show up for breakfast on Christmas Day and called police later that day. Kevin Bacon’s car was later found in a Swartz Creek-area parking lot. A bag of clothes, phone and wallet were in the car. The only thing missing were the car keys. Family and friends began searching for Kevin Bacon on Dec. 27. Karl Bacon shared all that information with the media during the search for his son.
Police discovered a grisly mess:
The horrific details were contained in court documents, and they show that, when detectives went to Latunski’s home to check on Bacon’s welfare, they stumbled on a terrible scene.
The court records, shared by Friends and Community Shiawassee County News and Views (and reported by other news sites), reveal that detectives discovered Bacon “hanging deceased and naked from the ceiling.”
They placed Latunski into custody. He was interviewed by detectives and allegedly “admitted to the murder of Mr. Bacon,” the court documents allege. “Mr. Latunski stated he used a knife, stabbed him in the back one time, then slit his throat. Afterwards, Mr. Latunski stated he wrapped rope around the ankles of Mr. Bacon, and hung him from the rafters on the ceiling.”
Horrifically, cannibalism is alleged.
“Mr. Latunski admitted to using the knife to cut off Mr. Bacon’s testicles which he later consumed,” the court documents allege.
This was not his first brush with the law. He was deemed ‘unfit to stand trial’ for a kidnapping case.
In 2013 Mark Latunski was charged with kidnapping and parental interference. He went thru a competency hearing and was…
That’s not all. Latunski had been legally married to an estranged ‘husband’, who he also met on Grindr.
Arnold told WNEM that he separated from Latunski because of his lifestyle, adding, “There were times I would come home and there was someone there… He tried to get me involved. I made dinner and went to bed. I had to get out. I couldn’t take that lifestyle anymore.”
That wasn’t the only creepy thing he did at that home.
A month before prosecutors say Mark D. Latunski killed a man he had met on a dating app, police responded to his house after another man was seen fleeing from it wearing only a kilt.
Michigan State Police troopers at about 5 p.m. on Nov. 25 responded to Latunski’s rural house at 703 W. Tyrrell Road in Shiawassee County’s Bennington Township after a neighbor called 911 to report seeing a man running outside wearing only a leather kilt with another man chasing him, according to MSP Special 1st Lt. David Kaiser.
Another report claimed it was a cape.
