Accused killer’s home enters foreclosure

Mark Latunski

CORUNNA — The home and property of Mark Latunski, who is accused of killing, mutilating and partially consuming the body of 25-year-old Kevin Bacon, is entering foreclosure and likely will be sold at auction in February.

Latunski, 50, is being held without bond in the Shiawassee County Jail on open murder and mutilation of a human body charges in a case that has grabbed national headlines and shocked the community.

Attorneys for Security Credit Union, of Flint, published a notice of foreclosure Thursday in The Argus-Press, as required by state law. Unless the mortgage is paid off before the deadline, the property will be listed for sale at a public auction at Shiawassee County’s 35th Circuit Court house at 10 a.m. Feb. 26.

According to the notice, Latunski took out a mortgage Oct. 29, 2013, for $76,336.18 for his property, 703 W. Tyrrell Road in Bennington Township, near Morrice.

Public Defender’s Office head Doug Corwin, who was appointed to represent Latunski, has filed notice of an insanity defense. On Jan. 8, Latunski was ordered by 66th District Court Judge Ward Clarkson to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether he is competent to stand trial on the charges. He is currently listed as an inmate at the jail, and is expected to be sent for the evaluation within 60 to 90 days.

Latunski formerly worked as a chemist, and has rights to at least two patents, from which he may derive residual income.
