Over the past three years, the cases of Colombian women being assaulted is on the rise. But not just any assaults. At least 250 women have been doused in the face with acid leading to severe injuries, medical bills and physical and emotional scars. The attacks are baffling the police, who are at a loss for how to stop the horror and trauma that has women petrified.
The most recognized of such cases is probably that of Maria Fernanda Nuñez, the Colombian beauty pageant contestant who was attacked after returning home from a rehearsal in 2010. An unknown attacker doused her face with acid, searing her skin, nose and lips and severely damaging a cornea.
