Kevin Bacon of Swartz Creek went missing on Christmas Eve, and now Michigan State Police report that they have found him dead.

The MSP tweeted out early Saturday morning that they had found Bacon dead in a Shiawassee County home, and that they have a 50 year old man in custody.

The search for Bacon has been a massive effort from multiple police departments over the last four days. The police report that the man they have in custody is being held and charged with murder.

This is not the way that anyone wanted this search to end. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Bacon.
