Swartz Creek – A suburban Flint man who went missing on Christmas Eve has been found dead, according to police.

The body of 25-year-old Kevin Bacon of Swartz Creek was found Saturday in a Bennington Township residence, authorities said.

Michigan State Police said a 50-year-old man was arrested on a murder charge but wasn’t identified, pending arraignment. The suspect could be arraigned in Shiawassee County District Court as early as Monday.

Roommate and friend, Michelle Myers, told that Bacon was going to see a man he had met on Grindr, a dating app.

“I’m just in shock about the whole thing,” Myers said. “It’s just hard to process right now.”

Family members reported him missing when he didn’t show up for breakfast on Christmas Day.

Bacon worked as a hairstylist and was a student.
