    Reminds of "The Poet" case in Wichita in the 1970s. (interesting article from People at link at left)

    Fantasist piano teacher, 41, mutilates her own hands with kitchen knife
    in bid to convince police she was being targeted by ‘psycho slasher’

    How'd the police react?
    more, with pictures of the alleged threat notes and e-fit of the "attacker," at Daily Mail link above

    The case of The Poet I mentioned above is a fascinating one - there, the diagnosis was of dissociative reaction, "a split in the conscious mind in which one group of mental activities breaks off to function as a separate unit, as if belonging to another person." That could also be the case here as well.
