Investigation Into Spray Painted Racial Slur on Biracial Teen’s Home Takes Turn

An investigation into who spray painted racial slurs on the home of a biracial teen in a small Massachusetts town has taken a curious turn.

Initially after the vandalism was reported, authorities suspected that the vandals may have been teammates of the high school football player who resided in the home, but now that those players have been cleared, the investigation may be turning toward the family.

In the small town of Lunenburg, having  a home spray painted with the “N” word is a rare occurrence and residents are desperate to learn who was responsible for painting the slurs. On Tuesday investigators conducted a search of the home of Anthony J. Phillips, the father of 13 year old Isaac Phillips, who said he was harassed by teammates.

Because they were initially implicated in the incident, the football team members were forced to forfeit games while the investigation was ongoing. The team’s coach and players expressed how happy they are to be able to put this period behind them.

“We would have never done this,” said football team member Danny Szabady, 18.  “We always knew it wasn’t us.’’

The team’s coach, Steve Boone, told the Boston Globe that he’s relieved: “I am very happy that the team was cleared of the allegations.’’

The parents of Isaac Phillips were vocal after reporting the graffiti, but have reportedly stopped taking phone calls from reporters.

“You all can camp out here all night,” Anthony Phillips said after police ended their search. “I have no comment.”

  3. Low VOC paints have far superior abrasion resistance than zero VOC paints, so while its gentler on the air you have to be gentler on it. Which brings me to my next point, interior paints are designed to be scrubbed

  4. Why is everyone saying there is no story here? The spray painted slurs divided the town, the boy moved to a new school, the football team cancelled the season and now the mother has confessed (google it). I agree that sports aren’t everything but the senior football players will never get back their season. More importantly, their reputations were tainted by the son’s parents, when all along it was the Mom. The poor boy and father may not have even known & now so many lives and reputations have been ruined. Sounds like a story to me.
