In July, police confirmed they had found Fitzpatrick’s DNA in Strong’s basement apartment, ending the search for the 18-year-old who was last seen in 2008.

Strong was initially charged with indecent interference with a dead body in Hache’s case, but police say that charge will now be dropped in light of the more serious allegations.
