USA: Gay Male Michigan Killer And Cannibal, Gets Life In Prison Without Parole For Murder Of 25yo Man He Picked Up On Grindr. Victim Knew That Killer Was Involved In A Violent BDSM Sexual Fetish.


I came across this news, while looking for something else that I shared on social media back then, and thought it was appropriate to share it again to hammer in the point that 99.9% of LGBTQ people murdered or assaulted are sadly committed by LGBTQ people they had sex with or were once friends with or were acquainted with or even for jealously or offense. I'm going to ask again, how many Jeffrey Dahmer like serial killers are out there allowed to keep killing? This killer was given special LGBTQ privilege to look the other way by local police because he was a gay man. That's what local police did with Jeffrey Dahmer too and I may need to remind people that Jeffrey Dahmer was a gay man who was murdering and eating gay men he had sex with like this psychopath.

THE MAN accused of slitting his victim's throat, hanging him from his basement ceiling and eating his testicles in a grisly Christmas Eve murder will return to court early next year.

Mark Latunski allegedly confessed to the disturbing 2019 killing of 25-year-old hairstylist Kevin Bacon, who he met on the dating app Grindr.

Bacon was found hanging naked by his ankles from the ceiling in Latunski’s home in Bennington Township, Michigan, on December 28.

He allegedly cut off a part of Bacon's genitals and ate, according to court documents, which is how his parents learned about the details of their son's murder.

"Evil does exist and it touched us," Bacon's dad Karl Bacon told the Associated Press in a January 2020 interview.

“It’s gut-wrenching to hear the details and we’re beside ourselves.

It appears Bacon knew Latunski had a violent sexual fetish, according to court documents.

"What was released shows that Kevin had a dark side," Karl told FOX Detroit in 2020. "He obviously got into something that he wasn't prepared for.

“I’m going to remember him how everyone else remembers him, that he’s a good person who was passionate and cares for people.”

Latunksi has been in a Michigan jail for about two years while the pre-trial process unfolds and is scheduled to return to court on February 3.

A judge ruled that he is able to stand trial in October 2020.


Bacon met Latunski on Christmas Eve 2019 after the two allegedly connected on Grindr, a dating app for gay men. He was reported missing the following day.

Bacon texted roommate Michelle Myers at about 6 p.m. the night he went missing to say he would be out for a while, according to MLive.

“I’m just in shock about the whole thing,” Myers told the Michigan news outlet. “It’s just hard to process right now.”

Court documents revealed the horrifying details of the murder and that Latunski would sometimes stop taking medication for mental health issues.


His estranged husband told WJRT last week that Latunski “didn’t act like there was anything amiss” after the murder.

An April 2021 Rolling Stone article reported Bacon struggled with depression, poor self image and was going through family troubles at the time of his murder.

Myers, Bacon’s roommate, told Rolling Stone that he met up with family members and learned that someone he didn't want to see was coming in for the holidays, so he was looking for a distraction.

That led him to browse through Grindr, where he met his alleged killer.


He turned down game night with Myers and other friends to meet with Latunski for what was supposed to be a quick hookup, Rolling Stone reported.

He never returned.

Police found him in Latunski's basement on December 28.

Latunski was arraigned December 30 for murder and disinterment and mutilation of a dead body.

SHIAWASSEE COUNTY, Michigan - Mark Latunski, the man who brutally murdered Kevin Bacon on Christmas Eve in 2019, will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Latunski, who was charged with open murder and dead body disinterment and mutilation, was sentenced to life without parole Thursday after killing and eating parts of the 25-year-old victim.

He was ordered to trial earlier this year, but he ended up pleading guilty to the crime in September.

Family members reported Bacon missing on Christmas 2019 after he did not show up for breakfast.

His roommate said he went to visit a man he met on Grindr the night before. This information led investigators to Latunski's Shiawassee County home.

Before Latunski's sentencing, victim impact statements from Bacon's mother, father, and sister were read.

"In your sick, twisted mind you probably don’t think you did anything wrong," his mother Hannah wrote. "This Christmas I hope you suffer like we have."

Editor's note: The following details are graphic and may be distressing to some.

Court documents revealed disturbing details about how Bacon died. Police said he was found naked, hanging upside down from the ceiling of the home.

Latunksi later admitted to police that he stabbed Kevin, slit his throat, and then hung him with a rope from the rafters. He also said he cut off a portion of his genitalia and ate it, the documents said.

Police previously said it appeared Bacon knew that Latunksi was involved in a violent sexual fetish, and other people may have been harmed by him.

After Bacon's murder, one of Latunki's neighbors, Michael Parks, said he encountered a man in November on his front porch, covered in blood, knocking on his door.

"He's got purple hair, he's wearing a leather skirt and he's got a couple of belts across his chest," Park said. "This gentleman is grasping my arm with deathly fear (screaming) 'help me, keep him away' just screaming at the top of his lungs 'he wants to hurt me, he wants to hurt me'. Another vehicle pulls in my driveway and out comes, who I now find out is Mark, wearing a leather skirt, belts across his chest, no shoes, no shirt on, his beard is braided. (A) very odd-looking gentleman."

Michigan State Police arrived within minutes and took the bleeding man with them. No charges were ever filed against Latunski for that incident.
