Investigators working with the Social Security Administration arrested Corey Starks last week in Minnesota on a warrant for abuse of a corpse.
The remains of Starks' father, Charles Starks, were found last month at the Anchor Inn RV Park in Port Orford.
According to court paperwork, Starks told investigators his 71-year-old father died after a seizure in 2010, and he buried the body in a shallow grave near his trailer. The documents said video and bank records showed he got money from his father's Social Security checks, deposited in a joint account.
Two medical examiners are investigating the remains to determine if the death was from natural causes.
