7News Exclusive Interview with Lunenburg mother

LUNENBURG, Mass. (WHDH) -

Andrea Brazier’s home was sprayed with racist graffiti in November, her son, a football player on the Lunenburg High School football team was the target. In an exclusive interview with 7News she said her family struggled with the vandalism and the following investigation.

“The school has accepted him that he’s at now. He’s mad a lot of friends but obviously it’s hurt, it’s affected him,” Brazier said.

Brazier choked back tears talking about her teenage son. The Lunenburg mother is heartbroken watching her family cope with seeing her go from victim to villain.

“People are swearing at me, if I’m with the kids they’re yelling. It’s never happened before, but me kids don’t get that, they shouldn’t have to see that,” Brazier said.

She said the trouble started last November when the family found racist graffiti spray painted on their home. The hate message was directed at her 13-year-old biracial son who was a member of the Lunenburg High School football team. He was allegedly being harassed by other players.

“My 9-year-old is saying he wants to move. My 13 year old wants to move, they don’t want to be here. They’re uncomfortable and not happy,” Brazier said.

With the investigation on going the school canceled the Thanksgiving Day game and held a healing candlelight vigil for town. Weeks later sympathy turned to anger after police suggested 38-year-old Brazier was now a suspect in the investigation.

“There was a search, it’s no secret a search warrant was executed for the home. The rumor was that two cans of blue spray paint were seized at the home but that’s simply not true,” Brazier’s attorney Ed Ryan said.

Wednesday the District Attorney said he did not have enough evidence to charge anyone in the case.

“I'm happy with the DA's decision but it’s my family that’s being affected by it. It’s just hard and it’s not fair,” Brazier said.

The District Attorney’s office said it does not have enough evidence to charge anyone in this case but they did say the investigation remains open and active.
