Bernstein's body was found after rain washed away soil on his grave in the park.
Bernstein's body was found on Tuesday in a shallow grave at Borrego Park, where he and Woodward went almost a week before he was reported missing. A memorial of balloons and flowers, left, was placed on a table near the site.
Woodward was arrested in Bernstein's death on Friday. They were former classmates at the Orange County School of the Arts.

Samuel Lincoln Woodward, 20, was arrested and taken into custody Friday on suspicion of homicide after DNA evidence linked him to the death of college sophomore Blaze Bernstein.
Orange County Dist. Atty.
Hours later, the Orange County Register, citing a search warrant affidavit obtained by the newspaper, reported that Bernstein had been stabbed more than 20 times, leading authorities to investigate whether the teen was killed in an act of rage.
The murder weapon has not been found, according to reports. Investigators believe the University of Pennsylvania sophomore, who was home in Orange County for the winter break, was killed after he left his house on the night of January 2.
According to Woodward, he left Bernstein at the park while he went to meet his girlfriend. He said he returned to the park hours later to look for Bernstein.
But Woodward could not remember his girlfriend's last name or where she lived, according to the affidavit.
Bernstein reportedly claimed that Woodward "made me promise not to tell anyone ... but I have texted every one, uh oh". Investigators also believe Bernstein's body had been in that shallow grave the whole time he was missing.
His story, which Barnes said detectives found somewhat inconsistent, was that the cuts were from a "fight club" he was a part of and the dirt underneath his nails was from falling into a "dirty puddle".
The 20-year-old told authorities that he and Bernstein had driven to a Hobby Lobby store parking lot to catch up on the night of January 2, and then Bernstein left the auto and walked off into Borrego Park on by himself, according to a search warrant affidavit obtained by the Orange County Register, Woodward said that he waited for an hour, tried to contact his former classmate on SnapChat and left.
Court documents indicated the suspect was known in high school for holding conservative political and cultural beliefs.
Leading up to the death, Woodward's social media content had become increasingly violent and included defenses of the confederate flag.
Sheriff's detectives had Woodward under surveillance for several days before taking him into custody, and at one point secretly attached a court-approved Global Positioning System device to Woodward's rental vehicle, the affidavit said.
