A suspect accused of cutting a man's throat, hanging him in a basement, and consuming his genitals in 2019 is due to appear in court.
Mark Latunski reportedly confessed to murdering 25-year-old Kevin Bacon after meeting the hairstylist on the app Grindr on Christmas Eve 2019.
Bacon's naked corpse was found hanging from his ankles in the basement of Latunski's Bennington Township, Michigan, home on Dec. 28, 2019, police said.

A portion of the genitals had been removed and allegedly consumed by Latunski, court documents read.
"Evil does exist, and it touched us," Karl Bacon, the victim's father, said. "It's gut-wrenching to hear the details, and we're beside ourselves."
The victim supposedly knew that Latunski had a violent sexual fetish, court documents noted.
"What was released shows that Kevin had a dark side," the victim's father said. "He obviously got into something that he wasn't prepared for. I'm going to remember him how everyone else remembers him, that he's a good person who was passionate and cares for people."
Latunski has been in custody for roughly two years under the pretrial process, and a judge ruled he could stand trial in October 2020, according to a report.
