Quote of the Day: “They did not have Jarett’s Consent” – Denver police

‘Cops don’t see humor in partying with corpse’

Robert Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson, 25. Denver prosecutors have charged them  with abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation after they allegedly drove around town with their dead friend, Jeffrey Jarrett, and used  his ATM card.

Both men have been released from custody and are scheduled to appear in court  in coming weeks, said the Denver district attorney’s office.

Young was staying with his college friend Jarrett, 43,  the Denver Post reported. When Young arrived home about 11 p.m. on Aug. 27, he  found Jarrett unresponsive. It’s unclear exactly how Jarrett died, or when. But  instead of calling 911, Young went to get Rubinson, who helped load Jarrett’s  body into his Lincoln Navigator, Rubinson told police.

With the body in the backseat, Young and Rubinson stopped at restaurants,  first Teddy T’s, where they drank for about an hour and a half, and Sam’s No. 3,  court papers said. During this time, Young told police, “it was obvious” that  Jarrett was dead.

Then they allegedly drove Jarrett home, placed him in a bed and continued the  party with his bank card. The men ate at Viva Burrito, the paper said, and  withdrew $400 from an ATM at a strip club named Shotgun Willie’s.

About 4 a.m., five hours after Young found Jarrett, the men flagged down a  police officer at the strip club and told him:

“Our buddy might be dead” (yeah, you think?)
