Kevin Bacon, 25, was reported missing when he didnt show up for
breakfast with his family on Christmas Day, WJBK reported.
It wasnt long before his car was found outside Family Dollar in
Clayton Township with his wallet, phone and clothes inside,
according to Michigan Live.
The day before, Bacon a hairstylist had told a friend he was
meeting up with a man hed met on the dating app Grindr,
Michigan Live reported. Later that evening, Bacon texted his
friend that he was having fun and would be out for a while,

Early on Dec. 28, police found Bacons body in 50-year-old Mark

charged with open murder and mutilation of a human body.
Now, more details have emerged.

Police said Latunski confessed to killing Bacon by stabbing him
in the back then slicing his throat, also telling police hed

police determined no crime had been committed, WILX reported.

Actor Kevin Bacon, who shares first and last names with the
victim, took to Instagram to express his condolences when news
broke of the victims death last week.
For obvious reasons Im thinking this morning about the friends
and family of this young person Kevin Bacon, the Footloose
actor shared along with a photo of the victim. His life was
taken from him much too soon. His love was hair dressing. I bet
he would have done a great job on this mess on my head. RIP KB.
The victims loved ones also painted the Flint Rock in Flint,
Mich., to honor Bacon, WEYI reported. The rock now features a
rendering of Bacons face over a rainbow backdrop along with
