A Michigan man who is accused of killing and eating Grindr hook-up Kevin Bacon is facing a lawsuit from a second alleged victim who survived an incident “straight out of a horror movie”.

Mark Latunski is already facing a murder charge over the killing of hairstylist Kevin Bacon, 25, after luring him to a Grindr hook-up on Christmas Eve last year.

Latunski, who was judged incompetent to stand trial in March on mental health grounds, is thought to have killed Bacon, strung him up by the ankles and eaten parts of his body including his testicles.

He is now facing a lawsuit from a second alleged victim.

Kevin Bacon killer ‘held man captive’ at his home.

James Carlsen alleges that he was held captive at Latunski’s Bennington Township home in October – two months before the murder of Bacon – after meeting Latunski’s husband online.

In the lawsuit, Carlsen claims that he was strapped down to a table during a consensual BDSM session, with Latunski using locks, chains and leather straps to restrain him.

However, he was kept restrained in the basement as Latunski went to bed, telling him: “You’re not going anywhere.”

The victim eventually managed to free himself by cutting the straps with a knife, fleeing the house and calling 911.

Carlsen did not initially wish to press charges, but is now seeking $75,000 in damages in connection with the incident.

Shocking incident ‘straight out of a horror movie’.

Latunski is accused of neglect and gross negligence, battery and false imprisonment in the suit.

It states: “The facts of this case are straight out of a horror movie.

“Plaintiff James Carlsen traveled from New York to Michigan for the purpose of engaging in consensual BDSM with defendant Mark Latunski.

“What Mr Carlsen did not expect is that during his stay, defendant Latunski would end up chaining him down in his basement and holding him captive.

“After he thought defendant Latunski had fallen asleep, Mr Carlsen, terrified, cut himself loose using a butcher knife, and ran down the street in the middle of nowhere in order to call the police.”

The suit states that “defendant knowingly, intentionally, and wilfully caused plaintiff severe emotional distress when he locked plaintiff up in his basement, held him captive and assaulted, battered, exploited, and degraded him.”

It adds: “As a direct and proximate result of defendant’s unlawful actions, plaintiff has sustained and continue to sustain injuries and damages, including but not limited to mental and emotional injuries.”

Other disturbing incidents have also been linked to Latunski.

The Flint Journal reports that in addition to the 911 call made by Carlsen, there is at least one other incident of a man fleeing from Latunski’s house and calling police for help.

According to FOX 2 Detroit, there was also an incident in November, when a man covered in blood emerged from Latunski’s home, pleading with a neighbour to “keep him away” and warning “he wants to hurt me, he wants to hurt me”.

No charges were ever filed in connection with the incidents linked to Latunski.
