Police have revealed horrifying details of 25-year-old Kevin Bacon's alleged killing by a Grindr hook-up over Christmas.

Kevin, 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 then found his car in a parking lot where a bag containing his phone, clothes and wallet were found. 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.

Now, court transcripts have 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.

“Mr Latunski stated he used a knife, stabbed him in the back one time, then slit his throat,” Detective sergeant James Moore said.

“Afterwards, Mr Latunski stated he wrapped rope around the ankles of Mr Bacon, and hung him from the rafters on the ceiling.”

Latunski, 50, was charged with one count of open murder and one count of mutilation of a human body.

He is being held without bond in Shiawassee County Jail and is expected to appear in court on January 8.
