PORT ORFORD, Ore. — Police say Corey Theodore Starks confessed to burying his father under a trailer at the Anchor Inn RV Park in space #7 back in 2010. Starks told police his father died in March 2010 of natural causes. After burying him at that time, Starks had been utilizing his father’s social security checks.
Starks was located in Walker, Minn., last week. The Curry County District Attorney’s Office issued a warrant for Starks for charges on abusing a corpse in the second degree, a Class C felony.
Police are still investigating the cause of Charles Owen Starks’ death. Investigators are continuing to gather medical records to see if this death matches up with the remains found on March 11, 2013.
