Bacon’s body was found on December 28 hanging from his ankles in the basement of Latunski’s Bennington Township home.
His throat had been slit and several body parts removed, per official records.

Before police tracked him to Latunski’s house, his car was found in a Dollar General parking lot.
Latunski had originally pleaded not guilty due to insanity but changed his plead on Thursday – weeks before his trial was supposed to take place on October 18.
He pleaded guilty to mutilation of a body and open murder, which contains both first and second-degree murder.
A hearing in October will determine whether Latunski is convicted of first, second-degree murder, or manslaughter.
