OSHAWA, Ont. — The double-murder trial of an Oshawa, Ont., man is hearing gruesome details of what the prosecution alleges were the accused’s attempt to get rid of the body of one of the teenage victims.
Adam Strong has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Rori Hache and the presumed death of Kandis Fitzpatrick.
Hache disappeared in the summer of 2017 and Fitzpatrick vanished in 2008 and has not been heard from since.
