A CANNIBAL killer has pleaded guilty to murdering and eating parts of the body of a man named Kevin Bacon.
Mark Latunski, 53, lured the 25-year-old hairstylist to his Michigan home in December 2019 after they met on Grindr, a hookup and dating app.
He then stabbed Bacon in the back and cut off his testicles, took them to his kitchen and ate them, Mlive.com reported.
Bacon’s body was found on December 28 hanging by his ankles in the basement of Latunski’s home in Bennington Township.
According to official records, his throat had been cut and several body parts removed.
The hairdresser’s family had reported him missing after he failed to show up for breakfast on Christmas Eve.
Before police chased him to Latunski’s home, his car was found in a Dollar General parking lot.
Latunski originally pleaded not guilty to insanity but changed his plea Thursday — weeks before his Oct. 18 trial was scheduled to take place.
He pleaded guilty to mutilation of a corpse and to count murder, which includes both first and second degree murder.
A hearing in October will decide whether Latunski will be convicted of first-degree murder, second-degree murder or manslaughter.
Latunski faces a possible life sentence.
Police believe there may be other potential victims out there.
A neighbor told Fox 2 that in November 2019 he encountered a young man in a leather skirt on his porch who asked him for help.
“This gentleman grabs my arm in mortal fear, yells, ‘Help me, keep him away,’ and yells at the top of his lungs, ‘He wants to hurt me, he wants to hurt me,'” said Michael Parks.
“Another vehicle pulls into my driveway and out comes who I have now found out is Mark, wearing a leather skirt, belt across his chest, no shoes, no shirt, his beard is braided. [A] very strange looking gentleman.”
Police arrived at the scene and took the bleeding man away, but no charges were ever brought against Latunski for the incident.
