Michigan Cannibal Pleads Guilty After Killing And Eating Man He Met On Grindr
Three years ago, in Swartz Creek, Michigan, 53 year old Mark Latunski used Grindr, an LGBT dating app, to find a man willing to meet up with him in person. When a hairdresser named Kevin Bacon agreed to come to Latunski’s home, he was attacked. According to New York Post, family members notified police he was missing when he failed to arrive to their home for Christmas.
When police arrived at the scene, Bacon was found in Latunski’s basement, hanging from one of the rafters, with his feet tied by rope and multiple of his body parts removed, including his genitals. Latunski admitted to investigators that he repeatedly stabbed Bacon in the back, removed parts of his body, and ate them.
Mark Latunski was arrested and faces murder, kidnapping, and mutilation charges. On Thursday, he pleaded guilty, after previously pleading not guilty with an insanity defense. He now waits to learn if he will be convicted of first degree murder, second degree murder, or manslaughter. His trial is currently scheduled for October 18th.
