Jason Burkett Went Missing on McKinney Avenue

An alert FrontBurnervian passed along to me a curious police report. Here’s the full narrative:

REPORTEE STATED ON 5-13-12 AT ABOUT 12:30AM THE COMPLAINANT WAS PLACED IN A CAB AND THE DRIVER WAS INSTRUCTED WHERE TO DROPPED THE COMPLAINANT OFF AT. REPORTEE STATED THAT THE COMPLAINANT HAS NOT BEEN SEEN OR HEARD FROM SINCE. END OF ELEMENTS

The offense location is listed as 2908 McKinney, which is the address of St. John’s Tavern. The complainant (the guy put in the cab) is listed as Jason Burkett. So you’re leaving a bar. Your friend is a little drinky. You put him in a cab and tell that cabbie where to take him. Then your friend vanishes. Not good.

Contact DPD if you know anything about what happened to Jason Burkett early yesterday morning. Then, of course, let us know in the comments.

  1. So we know what time and at which bar Jason got into a cab. I would be shocked if there are not any establishments, ATM, Bank, or even Red Light cams surrounding the bar that could be used to find info on the Taxi cab and go from there.

  2. A person missing for a day or two is a “curious police report”? I would imagine there are dozens of such reports filed each month. Glad to see he turned up…which is also probably what happens the majority of the time.
