Cannibal Mark Latunski gets life in prison for murder and mutilation of Grindr data

A confessed Michigan cannibal has been sentenced to life in prison for killing and mutilating a man he met through a dating app on Christmas Eve in 2019.

Mark Latunski, 53, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole by a Shiawassee County judge after pleading guilty to the sickening slaughter of a 25-year-old hairdresser named Kevin Bacon in September.

Latunski was found guilty of first-degree murder and the exhumation and mutilation of a corpse, for which he received an additional 11-month sentence, which is being served concurrently.

He confessed to stabbing Bacon in the back and removing parts of his body that he told investigators he had eaten. He said he cut off and ate his testicles and considered buying a dehydrator to make beef jerky out of Bacon’s muscles.

Bacon, of Swartz Creek, was reported missing by family members when he failed to show up for breakfast on Christmas morning 2019. Investigators found his car parked at the Dollar General Store and then traced his latest whereabouts to Latunski’s home in Bennington Township.

Three days later, his dismembered body was found hanging upside down from the ceiling of Latunki’s basement. His ankles were tied to the rafters with ropes, his throat was slashed and body parts removed.

Investigators said Latunski and Bacon met through LGBTQ dating app Grindr. Latunski lured his victim to his home, where he brutally murdered him.

Latunski initially pleaded not guilty to charges of insanity, but reversed course and pleaded guilty to murder shortly before the case went to trial.

After the pleading, Shiawassee County Judge Matthew Stewart was given the power to determine whether the murder charge would be classified as first or second degree murder. He ruled that October’s murder was first-degree first-degree murder.
