An Oshawa man charged in the deaths of two Oshawa women made a brief court appearance this morning.

Adam Strong, 46, is facing two first-degree murder charges in the deaths of a pair of 18-year-olds, Rori Hache and Kandis Fitzpatrick.

Hache’s torso was found in the Oshawa Harbour in July of 2017, while Fitzpatrick went missing in 2008.

Her body has never been found.

Strong was originally charged with indecent interference with a dead body after Hache’s torso was found, but Durham Regional Police dropped that charge and laid the murder charges Nov. 8.

Hache’s mother, Shanan Dionne, wants Strong to face justice.

“I would like to see him own what he’s done to both girls and come clean with it without a deal being presented to him,” Dionne told reporters outside the courthouse in downtown Oshawa.

“I don’t think if he’s any kind of rational human being that’s about to meet his fate the best thing h can do is come clean and give us what we want to know.”

Strong appears in court again Nov. 30.
