On Friday, police confirmed that remains that were found in a basement apartment in late December belong to 18-year-old Hache. 11, a fisherman spotted a female torso floating in the water of Oshawa Harbour.

Durham Regional Police say “a large quantity” of DNA evidence collected at an Oshawa basement apartment where the remains of a pregnant teen was found last year is believed to belong to another woman who went missing 10 years ago.

Det. Darren Short told reporters during a news conference Tuesday that exhibits collected at the time of the initial search earlier this year matched that of 18-year-old Candice Fitzpatrick, whose parents reported her missing in 2010.

“Family had reported to police in 2010 concerns of her not having been seen since 2008. She was 18 years old at the time,” Short said.

“We know Candice has two sisters. We have spoken to those sisters and based on the information they have provided to us, their age at the time when Candice was reported missing and the fact of Candice not having been seen since 2008, we strongly believe that the DNA located is that of Candice Fitzpatrick.”
