AC­CUSED TORSO KILLER BONE-TIRED

Ac­cused Os­hawa torso killer: I was up all night

Toronto Sun - - NEWS - BRAD HUNTER bhunter@post­media.com

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.
