LUNENBURG, Mass. (WHDH) -
The Worcester County district attorney said Wednesday that no one will be charged for painting the racist graffiti on a Lunenburg home.
The graffiti had been painted on the home of Lunenburg High School's only African-American football player, Isaac Phillips.
In a police report, officers called the player's mother, Andrea Brazier, a "strong suspect" in the case.
However, after review the D.A. said police could not show that a crime had been committed.
“After a thorough review by our appeals staff, we have notified the Lunenburg Police Department that the evidence presented to us fails to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime has been committed by a particular person,” Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. said in a press release.
Police say they will continue to investigate any new evidence brought to their attention.
