2 Men Arrested For Partying On Dead Friends Tab
In an attempt to recreate the classic film, "Weekend at Bernie's", two men identified as Robert Jeffery Young and Mark Rubinson got busted using the ATM card of a recently deceased man with whom they allegedly carried out of their shared home into their car and drove around Denver looking for some good times.
These two men, who are currently being charged with abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation, drove around Denver with a dead friend using his ATM card to run up a tab at a local bar, purchased a meal at a restaurant and then withdrew $400 from an ATM at a strip club. Sounds like a pretty good night for the recently deceased.
As of right now, it isn't exactly clear as to how Jeffrey Jarrett died, but luckily the two men driving around with his body aren't being charged for his death.
CBS news reported: Investigators allege the men stopped at a restaurant, returned Jarrett's body to his home, used Jarrett's ATM card and withdrew $400 at the strip club Shotgun Willie's before reporting Jarrett's death. Jarrett was described as a loving father, who was a graduate of Colorado State University and a hockey player, a member of Jarrett's family told CBS Station KCNC. "This is a bizarre and unfortunate crime," Denver Police Department spokesman Sonny Jackson told KCNC. "This isn't anything you want to have happen to a loved one."
A lot of questions are beginning to bubble up to the surface after this report has been released. How exactly did this man die? Were these two individuals around at the time of death? If they had called the police earlier, would his life would have been saved? Pending the results of the toxicology tests and autopsy, it is possible that the parties involved get hit with more charges.
