Lexus recalled: "He marched over and poured the nail polish remover into a bowl next to me. Dipping his fingers in the bowl, he grabbed a lighter and lit his hand on fire. He then grabbed the bowl and tipped the clear liquid onto my bare legs. He told me, ‘If I can’t have you, no one can.' Then he lit me on fire. Frantically, I rolled on the floor in an attempt to extinguish the flames. The pain was agonising. Thankfully the neighbours heard my screams and dashed to my aid." When firemen and paramedics arrived minutes later to rescue Lexus, Brian was still at the scene and he was treated for minor burns to his hands. Paramedics rushed Lexus to Bartlett Regional Hospital, Juneau, Alaska, where doctors kept her sedated. 50% of her body was burnt with a mixture of third and fourth degree burns. The doctors told her parents she wasn't going to make it. Fortunately, she woke up three weeks later.
