Mark Latunski, a cannibal, says he ate a man named Kevin Bacon.
Now he is enjoying rotting away in prison.
A man from Michigan who is a cannibal pled guilty to killing and eating part of a man named Kevin Bacon three years ago after meeting him on a dating app, a report said Friday.
Mark Latunski admitted on Thursday that he killed and cut up the 25-year-old hairdresser he lured to his home in Bennington Township in December 2019. According to Mlive.com, Latunski killed and cut up the woman after luring her there.
Latunski, who is 53 years old, admitted to stabbing Bacon in the back and then cutting off parts of his body, which he then took to the kitchen and ate.
Latunski reportedly told police that after meeting Bacon on Grindr, a hookup app for gay, bisexual, and trans men, he cut off Bacon’s testicles and ate them.
He faces a possible life sentence.
According to the news outlet, Bacon’s body was found hanging from the ceiling of Latunski’s basement with rope around his ankles. His throat had been cut, and body parts had been taken.
Latunski, from Swartz Creek, had previously pleaded not guilty on the grounds that he was insane. This dramatic change of heart happened less than a month before his trial was set to start on Oct. 18.
Even though Latunski’s lawyer, Mary Chartier, said he has a history of mental illness, he still pleaded guilty, the news source said.
Bacon’s family started to worry when he didn’t show up for a Christmas Eve breakfast in 2019.
Later, investigators found his car in the parking lot of a Dollar General store and followed him to Latunski’s house on December 28, 2019.
At a hearing on Oct. 18, the judge will decide if Latunski is guilty of first- or second-degree murder, or if he is just guilty of manslaughter.
