From the Oregonian:
“A 28-year-old Vancouver woman admitted today that she threw acid in her own face, severely burning herself Aug. 30, Vancouver Police Chief Clifford Cook said this afternoon.
Police searched Bethany Storro’s house today and confronted her, Cook said. She then told them she made up details of the attack, he said.
“She is extremely upset. She is very remorseful,” said Commander Marla Schuman.Storro earlier said she was on her way to buy coffee at a Starbucks near Esther Short Park about 7:15 p.m., when a woman walked up to her.“She said, ‘Hey pretty girl, do you want to drink this?’” Storro’s mother told The Oregonian the day after the attack. The woman, Storro said, then threw a cup of what doctors described as an acid with the strength of sulfuric or hydrochloric acid in her face.”
“Storro described the woman as an African-American woman in her late 20s, to early 30s, with slicked-back hair in a pony tail. She was wearing a green shirt and khaki shorts, and had three piercings in her ear.”
“I thought maybe this was the answer to all my problems, to have a completely different face.”
