There's one woman in particular that actually went into hiding the week that the composite sketch was released because of the shocking similarities between her and the sketch. When she would go out, she would feel people staring at her.
Storro claims that, at 7 pm, she was out and some woman came up to her and said "hey pretty lady want something to drink" and then proceeded to throw the contents of a cup in her face. In the end, this really didn't happen like that and for some reason the injuries were self-inflicted.
Bethany Storro's use of an African American perpetrator indicates a hint of racism in the mind of many media sources and also in the minds of African Americans.
