Daniel Lynch Katie Piper: Daniel Lynch, the 34-year-old obsessive’s ex-boyfriend, planned for Sylvestre to throw the corrosive liquid at her in March 2008. She has since gone on to protest and raise awareness about acid attacks, narrating her story in the documentary Katie: My Beautiful Face.

Lynch was found guilty of sexually abusing Piper and telling Sylvestre to throw acid on her and was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 16 years in prison. After dating for a short time, Lynch, a martial arts enthusiast with a previous conviction for throwing boiling water on a guy, became envious of the couple.
Stefan Sylvestre, 30, of Shepherd’s Bush, west London, was sentenced to life in prison in 2009 for the crime and was told he would have to serve at least six years before being eligible for parole. Danny Lynch is still in prison, while Sylvestre has been released.
Because some of the acid sprayed back into Sylvestre’s face, leaving him with visible surface scars on his cheek, he was linked to the attack.
