TEST RESULT: Analysis Conclusion: Bethany Storro

Freddie Roach, Manny Pacquiao

It was the most painful thing ever. My heart stopped. It ripped through my clothing the instant it touched my shirt. I could feel it burning through my second layer of skin. I have never, ever seen this girl in my entire life. When I first saw her, she had this weirdness about her — like jealousy, rage.” 

Bethany Storro said the above.

She had "never ever" seen "this" girl, who attacked her. 
Note the need for emphasis would lead even an untrained law enforcement officer to ask if she knew the attacker.  

As it turned out, she knew her fairly well. 

Bethany Storro self-inflicted the acid in her face. 

She claimed to be a victim of an acid attack by a 28-year-old black woman. 
Bethany’s unlikely story went like this: she was getting something out of the trunk of her car when a woman holding a cup came up to her and asked: “Hey pretty girl, do you want to drink this?”
The woman splashed the contents of the cup, believed to be hydrochloric or sulphuric acid on her, causing her to stumble in pain and fall to the ground screaming. The other woman ran off. initially Bethany refused to give interviews about the attack but  wrote about it on Facebook. 
acid19n-7-webUnder police interrogation, Bethany eventually admitted she threw the acid in her own facePolice Commander Marl Schuman said the alleged attack and the probe stretched the resources of Vancouver‘s small police department. “It’s been hundreds of hours,” Schuman said about the time invested in the investigation. It really took a toll on the department and the resources that we have. She is extremely upset. In many ways, this got bigger than she expected.” 
Now we have Naomi Oni, who, unlike Bethany, sought out as much attention as possible until police went public about her computer searches. Statement Analysis of Naomi Oni's account showed passivity; that is, she concealed identity or responsibility of the attack. 
Naomi now has an account seeking donations up to $20,000 as her goal.  At recent check, she was approaching $2,000.  Please recall that the public not only donated a great deal of money, but held vigils and even got tattoos for Charlie Rogers, the "Fake Hate" fraudulent perpetrator who is facing significant prison time.  Bethay collected $20,000 from the public, but a Canadian court ordered her to give it back and pay the police $4,000 in fee restitution.

These acid attack's, be it to oneself self or to other people are becoming disturbingly regular.Just today on sky news there is report of another one.

Bolshoi Acid Attack: Dancer Paid Perpetrator.

A ballet star says he only wanted the Bolshoi chief to be beaten up, reportedly in revenge for not giving his girlfriend a part.

A leading dancer has admitted ordering an attack on the Bolshoi ballet chief, but said he did not mean for him to be splashed with acid.

Police say Bolshoi soloist Pavel Dmitrichenko paid 50,000 rubles (£1,080) to Yuri Zarutsky, who is accused of throwing a jar of acid at Sergei Filin.

The artistic director suffered severe burns to his eyes and face in the January 17 attack.

Dmitrichenko has faced a Moscow district court, where a judge decided to keep him in custody until April 18 - the end of the initial investigation period.

L to R: Mr Filin, Ms Vorontsova and Dmitrichenko (AFP/Bolshoi Theatre)
The 29-year-old dancer's two co-defendants, Zarutsky and alleged getaway driver Andrei Lipatov, were also in court.

Speaking from a cage, Dmitrichenko told the court he had complained about Mr Filin to Zarutsky, who offered to "beat him up".

He said did not mean for the attack to cause such bodily harm.

"I told Yuri Zarutsky about the policies of the Bolshoi Theatre, about the bad things going on, the corruption," Dmitrichenko said.

"When he said: 'OK, let me beat him up, hit him upside the head,' I agreed, but that is all that I admit to doing.

"It's not true that I ordered him to throw acid at Filin."

Police say Zarutsky bought the acid at an auto shop and they believe he then heated it to make it more concentrated.

Dmitrichenko as Ivan the Terrible
Dmitrichenko, who was arrested on Tuesday, has also been shown in a police video confessing to planning the attack but "not on the scale" that it turned out.

And Lipatov insisted he just drove to where he was told and had no idea of what Zarutsky was planning.

Police have said the crime was motivated by Dmitrichenko's hostile personal relationship with Mr Filin.

The Russian press reported the Bolshoi chief refused to give Dmitrichenko's ballerina girlfriend Anzhelina Vorontsova top roles.

Dmitrichenko is said to have been particularly riled that Vorontsova was not allowed to dance the main Odette-Odile role in Swan Lake, the dream of any ballerina.

Ms Vorontsova was not given top roles (AFP)
"The main motive was enmity towards Filin, who according to the suspect, had a negative attitude towards his partner," a police source told the Izvestia newspaper.

"Dmitrichenko said that Filin was thwarting Vorontsova's artistic career and did not give her the main roles."

Mr Filin, 42, was left battling to save his eyesight and prevent permanent facial disfigurement from the attack.

He is now undergoing a long rehabilitation in Germany.

Mr Filin's wife Maria told the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily that her husband had suspicions about Dmitrichenko but believed that a "much wider" circle of people were involved.

"Not just the three who they arrested. We hope the security forces unearth those who are implicated in this," she said.

Some staff at the Bolshoi Theatre have suggested that Dmitrichenko's actions are impossible to comprehend given his own career was on the up after he took the title role in the ballet Ivan the Terrible.

My face is worth more than $20,000 to me......
Or, my face is not for sale for $20,000......
You will give me only $20,000 to wear forever the damaged face? Nah. That's insane.....

Mainah said...

It was a copy-cat of the case I guessed. Interesting yet not surprising.

OT: What do you (all) think of this report?

Fairfield police Sgt. Paul St. Amand said the woman went into the Fairfield United Methodist Church on outer Main Street about 10:20 a.m. and asked to speak to the pastor. When the man at the reception desk left to call the pastor on his cellphone, the money in a paper bank envelope on the desk was gone, St. Amand said.

"He came back in, she was on her way out and he realized he had left the deposit envelope on the table, which she took on the way out," St. Amand said.

St. Amand said the woman is described by church officials as black, 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet tall and weighing 180-200 pounds. St. Amand said the woman left driving a dark Dodge SUV with a male passenger of unknown race. They don't know what direction she went in.

St. Amand said a partial license plate number was reported, with the numbers 1 and 2.

Skowhegan police are assisting with the investigation. Other police agencies also are on the lookout for the woman and the SUV.

No one answered the phone at the Methodist church Monday. Pastor Judith Gould could not be reached for comment.

here is a VT of the Judge asking Jodi Arias questions from the Jury,and her answers.

Very interesting.

Ney said...

Do they do that to themselves to collect money? If so, they should be checked for mental health.

Anonymous said...

That report sounds trumped up by a cause seeking "journalist" because they have captured the suspect.

It is written to make the person reporting the crime the prime suspect. Only two numbers of the plate seen (1 and 2) could be their code for infiltrating the church and accusing others of being Klan members. It sells stories for them though they care not of civil liberties of anyone else but themselves.

Not knowing which way they drove off? Ha! If they even got a glimps of the plate number then they'd know which direction.

Oxymoron or just plain moron?

Peter Hyatt said...

I'll look at the jury questions, but thus far, it appears that the jury does not believe her.

she is a confident liar, and we can only hope that they do not fall for the confident body language, instead, focusing upon her answers, including avoiding answering questions directly.

I am SO GLAD the jury asked real, good & pertinent questions! This is a real relief! Seems like they called her out on some things - like:
JUROR QUESTION: How do you determine when you will tell truth?

Re: Bethany Storro--
A Canadian court ordered her to repay the donations and make restitution? This occurred in Washington state.

VLW said...

Mainah, the difficulty with this is that we don't have a direct quote from the receptionist, just a second-hand report from the investigating officer.

Anonymous said...

Bethany Storro did this in Vancouver Washington (not even ten mins from Portland Oregon) Vancouver is tiny compared to Portland, so that's why it strained the dept. She pled guilty, paid back $$ and spent a year in a mental hospital. Now she wrote a book.

Sus said...

I just googled her. I see when she was in court, she said she was "reading about" her mental condition. So she did get help?

I'm not sure if a book is a good idea. Who profits from it?

Mainah said...

VLM: Understood, we can't resolve a case here. I'm just trying to learn about discerning.

I think the writer (conveyed) used words indicating a disbelief in the report. As did the LE when he was quoted relaying the events out of chronological order. The time, 10:20 and the partial license plate numbers "1 and 2", equally 3 is noted...

A different writer's account, in another paper, had different information included. It said the receptionist went outside to get his cell phone (paraphrasing) to make the call to the pastor.

A woman has been charged in connection. It appears it was not hoax report.

Periwinkle Paisley said...

Sidewalk Super, I suspect that Brittany Storro has Munchausen Syndrome in which a person harms themself for attention or sympathy. From what I understand of Munchausen's Syndrome *any* attention is good. An acid burn on the face would be a permanent way to get that attention. It doesn't make logical sense to you or me but to someone mentally ill in this way it would. You'd always be getting looks of either revulsion or sympathy with a horrible facial scar like that.

Anonymous said...

I agree. Her jealousy comment made gag.

Anonymous said...

Periwinkle I agree. She claims she has Body Dysmorphic Disorder, but that is a conveniently more sympathetic disorder than one that relies on manipulation, pathological lying and disregard for the rights of others. Im not sure who said she was ugly before but she was clearly attractive and that is petty and silly. Now she is back, conveniently and propitiously. She waa close to going to jail, she had to disappear. There was no sympathy for her to gain until now. Now she has a seemingly profound (and fabricated) story to share of her journey from violent self mutilation born of extremely distorted self image to being a role model for others who suffer from the condition. She has a book deal in the works and comes forward now so Naomi won't steal her niche. Plus she says she threw acid in her face to commit suicide. Bullshit.

John, what do u think of the comments by Mr. Filin's wife? Especially the "much wider circle" and hoping the Security Forces unearth them that are implicated...

I feel the quotes are coming from her husband as well. Do you think it is his own defensive remarks to scare off future attacks or do you think he is egotistical, thinking everyone must be out to get me?
With all these serious injuries and Mr. Filin has time to sound so full of himself..sounds like he was pretty impossible to work with..makes you wonder..
I don't know, just something sounds different... Is it fear behind strong assumptions or an ego boosting??

Maybe the above quote meant she was ugly and disturbed on the inside.
