A murderer who met his victim through Grindr claimed there was an 'agreement' for him to cannibalize his victim.

Kevin Bacon, aged 25, was killed on Christmas Eve in 2019 by Mark Latunski, in a case that shocked and saddened many.

They initially connected over Grindr and arranged to meet at Latunski's home in Michigan.

It wasn't until the following morning that Bacon was reported missing after he failed to attend a family Christmas breakfast.

On December 28, Bacon's body was discovered in Latunski's basement, following a tip-off from a friend who knew Bacon had planned to meet someone from Grindr.

Upon discovering the body, police found Bacon hanging by his ankles, with a stab wound in his back and his throat cut.

In December 2022, Latunski was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

An A&E documentary released last year highlighted the gruesome nature of the case and provided insights into Latunski's mental state.

In police interview footage showcased by A&E, Latunski, aged 50, is seen speaking to detectives in the interrogation room.

During the interview, Latunski stated:

"I've never done this before, I've never done this before. We chatted for a while."

"He described the things that he wanted. And we made the agreement, and he was supposed to disappear. Be gone."

Detectives pressed him for more details about the so-called 'agreement'. 

Latunski continued:

"I would make his body disappear. And you know, we talked about several things. Part of the process was turning, you know, what portions of his body could be used or gotten."

"You know, turning his bones into bone meal and turning them into something that would grow tulips for his family."

After killing Bacon, Latunski shared his subsequent actions. 

"I did what I said I was going to do," he recounted. 

"I took his balls. I cut them out, I took them upstairs and I ate them."

At his trial, Latunski pleaded guilty to both murder and mutilation of a body.

During his sentencing, a statement from Bacon's parents, Karl and Hannah, was read.

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

Latunski had been previously married to a woman and had two children with her.

In August 2019, his visitation rights were revoked.

His ex-wife had filed a motion stating, "[Mark Latunski] has a history of mental illness and has been hospitalized in the Owosso Mental Stress unit ... [and] has a history of going off his medication."

Court records indicated that Latunski had also ceased taking his medication for his mental health issues.
