DENVER (CBS4) – Two men are facing charges in a crime that has family members shocked.

They are accused of putting their deceased friend into a car and then heading out for a night of bar hopping.

Jeffrey Jarrett died last month. The cause of Jarrett’s death is still being investigated.

Jarrett’s family is appalled by what happened. Two of his friends, Robert Young and Mark Rubinson, allegedly loaded his body into a car, hit a bar in Denver then another one in Aurora, before finally taking Jarrett, 43, home.

Rubinson, 25, and Young, 43, then ended their night at Shotgun Willie’s in Glendale, but without Jarrett. They then allegedly took $400 out of Jarrett’s account.

A member of Jarrett’s family, who didn’t want to be identified, said he was a loving father, graduate of Colorado State University and hockey player. She is devastated by the actions of Rubinson and Young.

“Taking a deceased person in a car, I mean, it just seems totally wrong,” said Jarrett’s family member.

Rubinson and Young face charges of abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation. A relative said Young was living with Jarrett and came home on Aug. 27 to find him dead, but didn’t call for help. 2 Men Accused Of Taking Dead Friend Out For Night On The Town

“I’m horrified, I’m absolutely, I can’t even put in to words, I can’t imagine anybody thinking that maybe their friend is in trouble and not calling 911,” said Jarrett’s family member.

Family members still don’t know what caused Jarrett’s death but they say the circumstances surrounding it are still hard to believe.

“It’s terrible, it’s just something that we’re really having trouble coming to terms with,” said Jarrett’s family member.

If the guy died of causes having nothing to do with their friend then I think they did the right thing by giving their buddy one last night on the town.

Jeffrey Jarrett died last month

By my calendar that's 16 days ago!
Did the family just have him laying around?

Well, maybe does seem that way, but ... who are we to judge?

“...charges of...criminal impersonation”

Why is it illegal to impersonate a criminal?

Since he was dead I presume laying around was all he could do. Maybe they just used him for extra furniture.

According to the news, he did more than that. He paid for all of their partying since they were using his debit card.

At least they can't be charged with neglect which seems to be what the family did.
