Woman Admits Acid Attack Was Self-Inflicted

Vancouver, Wa. - An appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show, bank accounts established in her name at more than one area bank – these things had to be abruptly canceled.

Bethany Storro, whose face was hideously disfigured, could not keep her story straight, according to Clifford Cook, Vancouver, Washington, chief of police.

Under questioning about certain discrepancies in her tale about a black woman she had never seen before walking up to her out of the blue and throwing acid as strong as hydrochloric or sulfuric solution in her face.

“During the interview,” he said, “Ms. Storro admitted the injuries were self-inflicted.”

In a nightmarish picture, she had originally told police a mysterious woman she had never seen before suddenly walked up to her and called her a pretty girl, then threw the acid in her face, fleeing on foot.

She crumpled to the sidewalk, she said, screaming in pain as the strong solution ate through her blouse and into her skin.

Questioning continues, according to police. No motive has yet been established for Ms. Storro's strange behavior.

Police officials say the complex case has taxed the resources of the small department directly across the Columbia River from the metropolis of Portland, Or.

They are prepared to file a charge of making a false crime report against Ms. Storro.
