UPDATE: Actor Kevin Bacon mourns Michigan Kevin Bacon’s death


A Hollywood actor is sending his condolence to the family of a Genesee County man killed who shared his name.

Actor Kevin Bacon expressed condolences for the passing of a Michigan man also named Kevin Bacon on social media Monday.

The actor wrote in the post:

“For obvious reasons I’m thinking this morning about the friends and Family of this young person Kevin Bacon. His life was taken from him much too soon. His love was hair dressing. I bet he would have done a great job on this mess on my head. RIP KB

The deceased 25-year-old Swartz Creek man, Kevin Bacon, was found dead Saturday morning at a home in Bennington Township in Shiawassee County after going on a date with someone he met online.

Karl Bacon, the victim’s father, said during a Sunday, Dec. 29 press conference that he was often teased for naming his son after the actor.

“I wanted the same initials, but I didn’t want Karl Jr. so that made sense,” he said. “The other Kevin Bacon wasn’t quite as famous as he is now.”

The homeowner is a 50-year-old man, and is in custody in Shiawassee County Jail suspected of open murder.
