Lindsey Bonchek’s life wasn’t always easy, but her family is remembering her as a fighter who’d do anything to take care of her three kids.

Police locate teen girl's remains, whose torso was found in Oshawa harbour in September

  Police locate teen girl's remains, whose torso was found in Oshawa harbour in September The remains of 18-year-old Rori Hache, whose torso was found floating in the Oshawa Harbour in September after she was reported missing by her family at the end of August, have been located, according to police. On Dec. 29, Durham Regional Police discovered the body parts inside a Mcmillan Dr. apartment in Oshawa. Const. George Tudos wouldn’t discuss what body parts police found in the home out of respect for Hache’s family. He noted that there’s much investigative work to be done at the basement apartment in Oshawa. “It’s an enormous task,” Tudos said. “There’s a lot of evidence that needs to be processed and we’ll be there for at least a month.” In the same location, police found a “suspicious package,” which was later identified as an explosive device and disposed of by the Explosive Disposal Unit. On Sept. 11, Hache’s torso was discovered in the water after she was declared missing by her family on Aug. 29. A fisherman found the torso, according to Tudos, and DNA testing came back in early November matching it to the missing teen. The city’s homicide unit took over the investigation, and, while an autopsy did not show the cause of death, significant trauma was found to the torso. Adam Jeffrey Strong, 45, was arrested in connection to her death, which has been ruled suspicious by police. Strong has been charged with improper or indecent interference with a dead body, and police are awaiting a post-mortem to find out whether the death can be considered a homicide, according to police. No information about any possible relationship of Hache and Strong has been released by police. Police are asking anyone with new information to contact Det. Short (Ext. 5407) or Det. Dorego (ext. 5319) of the Major Crime, Homicide Unit at 1-888-579-1520.

Bonchek had loved her kids ferociously, according to her cousin Rachel Honsberger, who spoke to the Star about the “uncommonly generous” single mother on Tuesday afternoon.

“She did not have very much, but if you needed something, she was there. Be it her time and energy or her assistance, she was always willing to help,” Honsberger said. As the oldest of her siblings and among the oldest of her cousins, Bonchek was “really our pack leader,” Honsberger added. Bonchek was a peacemaker, brought the family together, and took care of everyone.

She’d become a mother to Ben when she was still young herself, and parenting a child with disabilities wasn’t always a simple path. “Finding resources and money to take care of children with special needs, it’s not always easy. It’s very tough,” Honsberger said.

Four people die after head-on collision in Pickering

  Four people die after head-on collision in Pickering A fourth person has died in hospital after a two-vehicle collision in Pickering on Thursday. Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Sgt. Kerry Schmidt confirmed that a fourth person — a 25-year-old Oshawa woman — died in hospital after she was transported in critical condition to Markham Stouffville Hospital following the crash. Three people, all from Oshawa, died on scene around 12:10 p.m. on Hwy. 7 near Sideline 26. OPP Staff Sgt. Dean Korn said that a westbound BMW attempted to pass a vehicle, lost control and then slammed head-on into a Mercedes-Benz driving east. Schmidt said the roads were snow-covered at the time and that may have been a factor in the car losing control. Korn said the driver of the Mercedes-Benz was taken to hospital with minor injuries. Schmidt has identified the victims of the crash as 69-year-old Diosdado Chahal, who was the driver, 27-year-old Dhoser Chahal, 70-year-old Imelda Chahal and 25-year-old Hayley Doyling, all from Oshawa.

“But she really did the best with what she had, and that’s the thing about Lindsey: she wasn’t a quitter. She really was a devoted mom. She loved those kids … I have no doubt that she died trying to save her kids from that awful fate.”

In the wake of the tragedy, Ben has been left without his mother and siblings. “Ben has been left alone, with only the shirt on his back, and will require some form of care for the rest of his life,” a GoFundMe page set up by the family to cover funeral expenses and care costs reads.

Since the fire, the family has also been recalling memories of Maddie and Jackson.

“Maddie was the only girl, but she was very much an outgoing child,” Honsberger said, adding that she was “a little ray of sunshine” for everyone who knew her – but especially for her family.

“She was popular, she was brilliant at math - she was always doing math in her spare time, like what kid does that? What nine year old does that? But she loved it!”

Mother and her 2 children among 4 dead in 'horrific' Oshawa house fire

  Mother and her 2 children among 4 dead in 'horrific' Oshawa house fire A mother and her daughter and son are among four people dead after a fire tore through a multi-resident dwelling in Oshawa, Ont., early Monday in what officials are now calling "one of the worst events" the city has experienced in years. The blaze broke out shortly after 8 a.m. ET at the house on Centre Street North and Colborne Street West, near Bond and Simcoe streets, Oshawa Fire Services said. When crews arrived on scene, Chief Derrick Clark said they encountered "heavy fire and heavy smoke conditions" and a snowstorm descending on the area. Environment Canada expects 10 centimetres of snow to fall throughout the day.

Beyond numbers, the nine-year-old also had “a very artsy side,” Honsberger said. “She was a great artist, and she inherited that from my aunt, her grandmother. She was in the choir. So she was just one of those all-around kids.” She said teachers and parents of other kids have been reaching out to the family since Monday, telling them how much Maddie will be missed.

“And how much happiness she brought to the life of other people even though she was so young,” Honsberger added. Talking about Jackson, 4, she called him a sweet little boy.

“He loved his mummy,” Honsberger said. “He was in the same school as Maddie … I hear he was a great student. He was a good sharer, you know? All those things that are important when you’re four years old.”

The kids had started to spend time at the family cottage in Haliburton, on the water in paddleboats and running around on the shores. Lindsey’s parents – the kids’ grandparents – adored that time together, Honsberger said.

Katrina Marie Ferguson, who told the Star she’d known Bonchek since high school, remembers Bonchek’s patience with Ben – and said that Jackson and Maddie were taught to do the same. “She did a really good job at making sure that Maddie and Jackson knew that there are things that are different about Ben, but it’s not like they ever treated him any differently.”
