Robert Jeffrey Young and Mark Rubinson are free on bond by they couldn't be reached for comment Thursday.
It's unclear how Jeffrey Jarrett died, but the men are not charged in his death.
The Denver Post reports that in a less amusing real-life version of the film "Weekend at Bernie's," an affidavit accuses Young and Rubinson of leaving Jarrett's body in the car while they drank at a bar on his tab Aug. 27.
Investigators allege the men stopped at a restaurant, returned Jarrett's body to his home, used Jarrett's ATM card and withdrew $400 at a strip club before reporting Jarrett's death.
