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

The man accused of killing Kevin Bacon was taken to the hospital, and later returned to his cell after he was found unresponsive.

Michigan State Police confirmed that Mark Latunski was found unresponsive in his cell on Tuesday, Feb. 18 at around 5:05 p.m. Shiawassee County Public Defender Douglas Corwin said while doing a cell check, Corrections Deputies noted Latunski did not respond verbally to the deputies. They said he had normal breathing patterns, and they used smelling salt to help him respond.

Michigan State Police were called, and Latunski was taken to the hospital. He was released from the hospital that same night, with no “health deficiencies”, according to Corwin.

MSP says Latunski had been on a hunger strike, something Corwin says is incorrect. Corwin claims Latunski had been ‘eating appropriately”.

Bacon went missing in December of 2019 after attempting to meet up with someone he met on a dating app.

Latunski was charged in connection with the crime, and was ordered to undergo a forensic evaluation on Wednesday, Jan. 8. According to Corwin those results could come as early as March.
