“Our law enforcement partners identified Cameron, the victim’s ex-boyfriend, by combing through digital evidence and interviewing numerous people,” said Prosecuting Attorney Steve Alm. “Police recovered digital evidence from Cameron’s mobile phone that places him at the crime scene. They also found evidence he searched the internet for information about acid about a week before the attack.”
The woman remains in the hospital with severe chemical burns to her face, shoulders, back and legs.
Cameron faces life in prison with the possibility of parole for the attempted murder charge. He was also charged with firearms offenses.
He remains in custody on $2 million bail.
