VANCOUVER, Wash. (CBS/AP) Bethany Storro, the Washington state woman who claimed a random assailant threw acid on her face, could be charged with filing a false police report after she admitted that the "attack" was self-inflicted. - Naimah Jabali-Nash Crimesider blog writer Full article
Interesting development. Who would have saw that coming. Whatever disturbed this girl enough to feel the need to throw acid in her face as a means of getting attention or crying for help must be pretty bad.
I still see this poor girl as a victim even if it was a self inflicted. Acid burns are some of the most painful injuries one can sustain. Blindness (thank goodness she wore protective eye wear), sever scaring, and phantom pain is only the beginning of what this girl may have to go through.
Mental health experts need to look deep at what would invoke such a terrible response.
Look in her past. Look in her present. She has something very dark that she fears.
If this is a only money of "fame" grab I would be surprised. But if I am wrong I wish I could tell this girl there was easier ways.
Peace inside Bathany take this opportunity to turn everything around.
