Investigators Target Teen’s Mom in Racist Graffiti Probe

Jack Harper, WCVB (Boston), December 4, 2013

Investigators are looking closely at the mother of a Lunenburg teen whose home had racist graffiti sprayed on it last month, according to court documents.

According to the search warrant, Isaac Phillip’s mother, Andrea Brazier, replied “OK” when an FBI agent said she was the one who spray painted graffiti on the house.

The documents also claim Brazier made false statements and then asked them to stop the investigation.

Police took a bag of evidence out of the home where “Knights Don’t Need (N-Words)” was spray-painted on the family’s home. Phillips, who’s biracial, plays football for the Lunenburg Blue Knights.

According to the search warrant, two cans of spray paint and ammunition were found in home.


The family posted a “No Trespassing” sign on their property, and the once-outspoken Phillips aren’t talking anymore.

From the start, they blamed hateful spray paint on their 13-year old son’s football team. They said he was hazed because he is bi-racial.

The town held a vigil, and the district canceled all future football games. Investigators have since cleared the team, saying they weren’t involved.
