Latunski (R) Bacon (L)

A Michigan man last Thursday pleaded guilty to mutilation of a body and open murder after killing a college student he met on dating app Grindr and eating parts of the deceased body.

David Latunski, 53, killed Kevin Bacon, a 25-year-old University of Michigan-Flint student and hairdresser in December of 2019.

According to MLive, Latunski lured Bacon to his home, stabbed him in the back and took his body parts to his kitchen where he consumed them.

The cannibal also told police he cut off Bacon’s testicles and ate them.

Police found Bacon’s mutilated corpse hanging from the ceiling in Latunski’s basement, MLive reported.

“Kevin was a good kid, and he didn’t deserve what he got,” Bacon’s father Karl told WNEM.

“We won’t have to go through a lengthy trial,” said Karl. “Seeing Kevin’s pictures again in court, maybe we won’t have to go through all that.”

MLive reported:

Mark David Latunski, the Shiawassee County man accused of killing and dismembering 25-year-old Kevin Bacon in December 2019, has pleaded guilty.

Latunski, 52, appeared before Judge Matthew J. Stewart of the 35th Circuit Court Thursday, Sept. 22, and pleaded guilty as charged to open murder and mutilation of a body.

Open murder contains both first- and second-degree murder.

A degree hearing will be held on Oct. 18 to determine whether Latunski is convicted of first- or second-degree murder, or manslaughter.

Latunski was originally charged with open murder and mutilation of a body in December 2019, days after Bacon’s mutilated body was discovered inside the basement of Latunski’s Bennington Township home.

Bacon, of Swartz Creek, was stabbed, his body hung from his ankles, his throat cut, and parts of him were eaten, according to prior reporting by MLive, which cited police who searched Latunski’s home. His body was found on Dec. 28, 2019.
