Hoax: Woman Burned Own Face With Acid
Police say a Vancouver, Washington woman threw acid in her own face, then lied to investigators, saying a woman she did not know was responsible.
Vancouver Police Chief Clifford Cook said Thursday that Bethany Storro admitted to fabricating a story about the attack in which she suffered severe burns.
Cook says he does not know a motive for Storro’s actions.
Cook says discrepancies began to emerge during the investigation. Storro had said a woman with a ponytail attacked her on Aug. 30.
Cook says Storro is “very remorseful.”
