ACCUSED TORSO KILLER BONE-TIRED
Accused Oshawa torso killer: I was up all night
Adam Strong was tired. The 45-year-old accused double killer was in an Oshawa courtroom Friday morning facing two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of two teenage girls.
During the brief video appearance, when his lawyer told the BDSM enthusiast he would call him following the hearing, Strong moaned he “didn’t feel like it.”
“I was up all night. I want to go to bed, it’s been a rough day,” he said.
Strong is charged with murder in the deaths of Oshawa teens Rori Hache, 18, and Kandis Fitzpatrick, 19.
Hache’s mother, Shanan Dionne, reportedly gasped at the cavalier attitude.
“Smug to the bitter core of his black heart, you know? Like who hasn’t had a bad night’s sleep? People that don’t even know my daughter that are involved in this case have had nothing but bad night’s sleeps for 17 months, you know?” Dionne said.
A fisherman discovered Hache’s torso floating in the harbour in September 2017. The pregnant teen had disappeared from downtown Oshawa at the end of August.

Dr. residence led detectives to his seedy basement apartment where they found more body parts.
In July, they also discovered the DNA of missing teen Kandis Fitzpatrick who disappeared in 2008 in Strong’s lair.
Strong was initially charged with incident interference with a dead body in connection with Hache’s death.
Dionne hopes Strong will man up and come clean on the heinous crimes he’s accused of.
“I think if he’s any kind of rational human being that’s about to meet his fate, the best thing he can do is come clean and give us what we want to know,” she said.
“Seventeen months with it on our minds, not knowing what happened to her, where she is or what. Why? Why? Why? Big question of the day — why?”
Strong is slated to make his next court appearance via video Nov. 30.
