Denver: Wanted! More information on Zar Yar and Yer Zit

Seems they are Burmese refugees arrested on a possible homicide charge, but there is so little news on the arrest that happened last week, that we think there must be more to the story.  The victim is believed to be an Asian and we know that the court has to find a Burmese interpreter, and that is about all we know.

Back in 2009 we learned about Burmese and Bhutanese resettlement in Denver when the refugees were regularly being attacked by thugs after being placed in low-income neighborhoods. http://www.denverpost.com/ci_14053322

If you see more on the case, please let us know.

Here is a local Denver blog referencing the case.  Westword (hat tip ‘pungentpeppers’):

Thus far, authorities have been stingy with information about a homicide that took place late this past Thursday night. The victim has yet to be identified, and while two men — Zar Yar and Yer Zit — have reportedly been arrested in connection with the crime, no photos or additional details have been shared. Here’s what we know thus far.Thus far, authorities have been stingy with information about a homicide that took place late this past Thursday night.

….. law enforcers weren’t sure if a crime had been committed. But yesterday, CBS4 divulged that Zar Yar and Yer Zit had been taken into custody in relation to the death, which it defined as a homicide.

Nothing more about the suspects has surfaced beyond the station’s revelation that an advisement in the case had been put off until today to allow the court to find a “Burmese interpreter.”

We know a lot of Burmese of all sorts (and Bhutanese) have been resettled in Denver.  Reporters should check the resettlement contractors there for more on Yar and  Zit.

Also, keep in mind that taxpayers in “welcoming” communities must pay for interpreters for refugees facing legal charges.

Here is some contact information for resettlement contractors in Denver. Somebody knows Yar and Zit.  Why there are two offices for the Lutherans is beyond me, but keep in mind this is the same Lutheran outfit wanting to set up shop in Wyoming, here.
