A man who allegedly killed and ate the testicles of a man he met on Grindr has pleaded insanity.

25-year-old Kevin Bacon from Michigan, told his housemate that he was meeting a man he had been speaking to on Grindr on Christmas Eve.

According to his housemate, Michelle Myers, he messaged her saying he didn’t know when he would be home as he was ‘having fun’, according to MLive.com.

When he didn’t turn up to his family’s Christmas breakfast, they became concerned.

Police found his car along with a bag containing his phone, clothes and wallet. His car keys were missing.

Kevin’s body was then found on December 28 at Mark Latunski’s home in Shiawassee County’s Bennington Township.

This week, court transcripts revealed the extent of the mutilation of Kevin.

They state that they found his body hung naked from the ceiling by his ankles with his throat cut. Parts of the body were missing, including the testicles.

Latunski – who is charged with open murder and mutilation of a body – reportedly confessed to stabbing Kevin in the back, slitting his throat and hanging him by his ankles, and cut off and ate his testicles.

Now, his lawyer has filed an insanity plea, citing a history of mental illness including four court-ordered stays in an institution, according to RT.com.

Latunski reportedly believes he is a member of a royal family from Wales with another name. The judge has ordered a forensic evaluation.
