Cannibal Mark Latunski admits to eating man named Kevin Bacon
Now he’s sinking his teeth into rotting in prison.
A cannibal from Michigan pleaded guilty to killing and eating part of a man named Kevin Bacon after meeting him on a dating app three years ago, according to a report Friday.
Mark Latunski copped Thursday to murdering and mutilating the 25-year-old hairdresser, whom he lured to his home in Bennington Township in December 2019, according to Mlive.com
Latunski, 53, admitted to stabbing Bacon in the back, then removing parts of his body before taking them to the kitchen and chowing down on them, according to the outlet.
Latunski reportedly told cops he cut off Bacon’s testicles and ate them after meeting him on Grindr, a hookup app for gay, bisexual and trans men.
After the hard-to-stomach killing, Bacon’s corpse was found hanging from the rafters of Latunski’s basement with rope tied around his ankles, his throat slit and body parts removed, according to the outlet.
Latunski, of Swartz Creek, had previously pleaded not guilty with an insanity defense — and the dramatic reversal came less than a month before his trial was scheduled to begin on Oct. 18.
The guilty plea came against the recommendation of Latunski’s attorney, Mary Chartier, who has said he has a history of mental illness, the outlet reported.
Investigators later found his car in a Dollar General store parking lot, then tracked him to Latunski’s house on Dec. 28, 2019.
A court hearing on Oct. 18 will determine whether Latunski is convicted of first- or second-degree murder, or manslaughter.
