DENVER-- It's a real life version of the movie "Weekend at Bernie’s" with two men allegedly taking their dead friend around town for one final party.
A police Statement of Probable Cause describes the activities. It shows on August 27, Robert Young found his friend, 43-year-old Jeffery Jarrett, unresponsive at his home in the 1800 block of S. Forest St. Instead of calling 911, detectives say the two suspects loaded Jarret’s dead body in the back of an SUV. Then their party began according to police.
They started their night at Teddy T’s, a bar and grill at E. Evans Ave. and S. Monaco Pkwy. Investigators say the suspects used Jarret’s money, while his body was outside in the vehicle. Later in the evening the two men went to eat at Sam’s No. 3 while the body remained in the car. The two apparently dropped Jarrett’s body back at home and then went back on the town, allegedly using their dead friend’s ATM card. "Rubinson and Young then go to Viva Burrito and purchase food, using Jarrett's credit/debit card to pay for the food," officer Ranjan Ford says in the Statement of Probable Cause. "They then go to 7-11, Leetsdale and Monaco and purchase fuel for Rubinson's car." The two made one last stop at Shotgun Willie’s on Colorado Blvd., where they allegedly withdrew $400 of Jarrett’s money from an ATM inside the strip club, and stayed until it closed.
