Stormy Keffeler Resigns As Miss Washington
On Wednesday, police in Washington revealed that they are questioning Keffeler after she was found in a hotel room in December along with Pappa.
Keffeler and Pappa were allegedly covered with blood and the Guatemalan soccer player had sustained several wounds to his abdomen.
Pappa underwent surgery for his injuries and was later traded to Colorado. During the investigation, Keffeler reportedly gave one story about the stabbing incident, and Pappa shared another.
Days later, the pair apparently changed the stories they initially told police. It is unclear who is lying and why.
Though no one has been arrested, the police are still searching for answers.
Keffeler, was arrested in April 2015 and eventually pleaded guilty to driving in Seattle with a blood alcohol level that was nearly three times the legal limit.
In an interview this week, the model apologized for her actions, and for not revealing the arrest to the pageant’s officials.
Keffeler’ DUI arrest controversy along with the stabbing incident had led the pageant winner to resign as Miss Washington USA.
Maureen Francisco, co-executive producer of Northwest Productions, works with Miss Washington USA. She posted the following on her Facebook page Thursday:
“We can confirm the resignation of Stormy Keffeler as Miss Washington USA. Effective immediately, first runner-up Kelsey Schmidt will assume the title of Miss Washington USA 2016 and represent the state at the Miss USA event later this year.”
