A Vancouver woman who claimed a black woman threw acid in her face made up the story so she could preach about Jesus.

Police Chief Clifford Cook said at an afternoon news conference that Bethany Storro, 28, told detectives the truth during an interview after discrepancies emerged in her story.

The revelation that her story was phony came after she canceled an appearance on “Oprah” for fear the truth would be revealed upon questioning.

Storro originally claimed a black woman with a ponytail threw acid in her face at night on Aug. 30 as she was celebrating a new job and had just bought a pair of sunglasses.

She claimed her attacker said “Hey pretty girl, do you want to drink this?” before splashing the acid that burned her face.

Storro said she held the news conference then to draw attention to efforts to find the attacker, but also to talk about her faith.

“I’m here today because of Jesus Christ,” she said at the time, adding that the strength of her faith would allow her to move forward.

It’s unclear why a woman would disfigure herself and blame someone of another race all for the purpose of showing how good Jesus is, but perhaps her motivation will eventually become clear.
