The Michigan home of a man who confessed to having killed his Grindr date before eating his testicles sold at a foreclosure auction for $ 101,733.28.
Four people furiously bid on the picturesque estate on Wednesday, with the final winner agreeing to pay no less than $ 21,000 over the reserve.
The house, located in the municipality of Morrice, belonged to Mark Latunski, 50, at the address in December last year, who confessed to killing Kevin Bacon, 25.
On Thursday, a judge found Latunksi unfit to stand trial and ordered him to be transferred to a psychiatric institution.

The identity of the winning bidder has not been identified and it is unclear whether they intend to move to the house.
However, another person who made an offer on the site spoke with MLive-The Flint Journal and said they were interested in using the house as a “potential rent.”
“Only for investment purposes,” they said, adding that they had not inspected the property.
“We just don’t know what the interior is (like), what the biological hazard might be,” she added.
Despite selling above the reserve, the house is cheaper than most in the city, where the average property price is around $ 180,000.

Bacon arrived at the house on Christmas Eve and did not come out alive. After the news of his death, two other men claimed to be locked up in the basement of the house

Latunski, a former chemist, started chatting with Bacon, a much younger hairdresser, in the dating app Grindr last December.
Bacon went to the house of Latunski on Christmas Eve, where the horrible events took place.
Bacon’s naked body was found four days later on December 28, hanging upside down on the trusses of the home of Latunski in Michigan by a rope around his ankles, after the police started a welfare check for Bacon when they were tipped that he might have been inside.
Latunski confessed that he had killed his date by stabbing him in the back and then cutting his throat with a knife.

The suspect has also known that he has cut off the Bacon testicles and is eating them.
Later it turned out that two other men might have had a happy escape from the suspected murderer in the months prior to Bacon’s death.
Just a few months before the heinous murder, two men called the police on different occasions and said they had escaped from the basement of Latunski.
A horrific 911 call from October came from a 40-year-old man who said he was running away from the house of Latunski.
“I want you to know that I have never experienced anything like it. I don’t know if he drugged me. I just know I’m locked up in the basement, okay? Chained in the basement, “the man said.
The caller explained to the coordinator that he was meeting Latunski that night at a bus station.
“I met this guy. I’m bi. He is cute. He hit me. I don’t know we went to the car and talked. We went to the store, had a soda. I woke up in the basement, “he said. “He seemed like a nice guy.”
The man told the 911 operator that he used a butcher knife he had found in the basement to cut a leather belt that held his ankles, which was attached to a chain, and then fled on foot.
In a bizarre twist, the man later returned to Latunski’s house and stayed there for two or three days, according to police.
In that case, costs were never charged.
Then, in November, another man called 911 to report that he was running away from the house of Latunski.
The 29-year-old man called officers to report that he was stuck in the suspect’s basement.
“I’m trying to get away from a scary guy,” the caller tells the coordinator. “He let me tie in his basement.”
“He’s after me.”
The victim sought help from a neighbor while he telephoned the police.
Officers arrived just as Latunski turned up to fetch the leather kilt the man was wearing, saying it was expensive and his.
The victim again refused to bring charges against Latunski and to tell the police that their activity was mutual.
Police said they had not followed Latunski because both men refused to bring charges against him.
