DENVER — Two Colorado men stand accused of multiple offenses after driving their dead friend’s corpse to a pair of Denver nightspots and using his ATM card to buy themselves drinks, the Denver Post reported Thursday.
Prosecutors have charged Robert Jeffrey Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson, 25, with abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation.
The men found their friend Jeffrey Jarrett unresponsive at his house late on Aug. 27, before loading him into Rubinson’s car and taking him to a local bar and grill, where they drank on his tab.
They then went to another bar, before returning Jarrett’s body to his home and continuing their night out using their dead friend’s ATM card to withdraw money. On their way home, they flagged down a cop and told him they thought their friend was dead at his house.
Neither Young nor Rubinson has been charged with Jarrett’s death, the cause of which is still to be determined.
“This is a bizarre and unfortunate crime,” said Denver Police Department spokesman Sonny Jackson. “This isn’t anything you want to have happen to a loved one. You want them treated with respect in death.”
Just when you think you’ve hear it all, these two demented fuck-wads are out there trying to reenact ”Weekend at Bernie’s.” How broke must you be to see your dead “friend” and think, “you know what? We should put him in our car so we can use his ATM card to get a free night of boozing!” Cool move, Larry Wilson & Richard Parker. Did the thought of driving around a dead corpse not sink into these two loser’s brains as they were slamming drinks down their throat? I mean, did they go around hitting on girls as if they didn’t have a rotting corpse in their backseat? Judging by the looks of these two, they were probably at a low rent strip club with sagging titties in their face. And you have to love how they finally brought Bernie home and then continued with their night. What, did they rob some poor fuck when they were at one of the bars? How else did they find cash to go about their night? Something’s up here. Also, if you’re Jarrett’s family, what does it say about the kind of guys he hung around with? So much for having respect for the dead. And you wonder why I have no problem ripping on white trash. Are you starting to get it now?
