Corey Starks - Charged With Burying Father Under Motor Home So He Could Collect Father's Social Security Checks

Port Orford, Oregon (The Weekly Vice) - Corey Theodore Starks, a 38-year-old Port Orford man, was jailed after he allegedly buried his father under a trailer, then continued to collect his social security checks.

According to police, an investigation was launched after authorities found the bones of an elderly man who became deceased three years ago and was then buried under his own motor home.

The victim's son, Corey Starks, later admitted to burying his father under the trailer because he was unemployed and wanted to collect his father's social security checks. Starks reportedly collected more than $50,000 in benefits checks before the scam was finally uncovered.

Investigators say 74-year-old Charles Starks' remains were found at the Anchor Inn RV park in Port Orford where he lived from 2009 to 2010. The body was discovered when the lot owner thought the trailer had been abandoned and was in the process of having it removed.

Corey Starks claims his father died of natural causes, however at least one witness in the case told detectives that she believes Corey Starks killed his father.

Charles starks remains were sent to Eugene, Oregon for autopsy and reconstruction. The official cause has not yet been determined.

Starks was booked into jail and charged with second-degree abuse of a corpse. The case is still under investigation and further charges may be pending.
