Kevin Bacon Missing
Kevin went missing on Christmas Eve after he went to meet up with a man from Grindr. He was last seen just after 5 p.m. on Dec. 24. His family reported him missing on Christmas day after he failed to show up to brunch.
His family said they had no reason to believe he was not safe although it was odd for him to show up.
“It was not like him to not show up, he was supposed to be at my house on Christmas morning around 9 o’clock for a family brunch.” His father said.
The police later found his car in the Family Dollar parking lot in Swartz Creek. They said the clothes he was wearing when he left were inside the car, as well as his shoes, cell phone, credit cards, and cash.
His roommate, Michelle Myers, was the last person to see him. She said that Kevin texted her about meeting up with a man and possibly others, but his phone was shut off after sending a few texts indicating he would be out late.
“That’s the part that gets me the most, he usually always has his phone on, even if he’s out with strangers. And he turned his phone off after he texted me last.”
Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser said Clayton Township Police received information from the Grindr dating app on Kevin Bacon’s phone, which was recovered in his vehicle, that showed he had been having a conversation with 50-year-old Mark Latunski. The messages led the police to Latunski’s home in Bennington Township during the early morning hours of Dec. 28.
