Mark David Latunski (aka the Grindr cannibal) was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the slaying and dismemberment of 25-year-old Kevin Bacon in December 2019.

As I’ve previously reported, Bacon was found murdered inside Latunski’s Bennington Township home on Dec. 28, 2019, after going missing on Christmas Eve. Latunski was dubbed the Grindr cannibal after it was discovered he had severed and eaten the genitalia of Bacon, who he had met on Grindr.

From Law and Crime:

Latunski in September pleaded guilty to one count of open murder and one count of disinterment and mutilation of a dead body in Bacon’s death, as previously reported by Law&Crime.

Judge Stewart sentenced Latunski to life on the murder charge and 10 years on the disinterment charge, with the sentences running concurrent.

Because the murder charge Latunski pleaded to was left open, Judge Stewart ruled in October that he was guilty of first-degree murder following a two-day bench trial.

“The court does not find this crime committed in the heat of passion,” Stewart said during that proceeding. “The court finds that this is a crime of cold calculation. Kevin Bacon’s death was Mark Latunski’s design.”
