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 Jarretts death is still being investigated.
Jarretts 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 Willies in Glendale, but without Jarrett. They then allegedly took $400 out of Jarretts account.
A member of Jarretts family, who didnt 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 Jarretts 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 didnt call for help. 2 Men Accused Of Taking Dead Friend Out For Night On The Town
Im horrified, Im absolutely, I cant even put in to words, I cant imagine anybody thinking that maybe their friend is in trouble and not calling 911, said Jarretts family member.
Family members still dont know what caused Jarretts death but they say the circumstances surrounding it are still hard to believe.
Its terrible, its just something that were really having trouble coming to terms with, said Jarretts family member.
1st one that dies buys drinks all night.
Prop me up beside the jukebox ...
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.
Well, maybe does seem that way, but ... who are we to judge?
He was dead drunk.
Errol Flynn! Did you read his autobiography?
Perhaps a limo would have been more acceptable?
No I haven’t, did he do stunts while drinking?
At least they didn’t try to get him laid.
Yeah, these 2 fools saw the movie!
Maybe everyone who participates in wakes should be charged, also?
Well, he was a stiff.
A hearse is a car...
fraternity prank. like an initiation, in reverse.
Corpse abuse is the worst.
“...charges of...criminal impersonation”
Why is it illegal to impersonate a criminal?
I bet Jarrett was Bernie’s long lost brother.
