Interviewed while Ms. Moats received treatment from emergency squad members, Mr. Danver stated his girlfriend was intoxicated and initiated arguments throughout the evening. At one point, Mr. Danver said he was asleep when Ms. Moats attacked him. Mr. Danver had several scratches around his eye that he said were caused by Ms. Moats gouging him with her thumb as he attempted to restrain her. A short time later Mr. Danver said Ms. Moats retrieved a knife from the kitchen and stabbed herself in the chest.
