LUNENBURG -- Police on Monday released a statement saying they have not found any "conclusive evidence" linking the spay-painting of racist graffiti on eighth-grade player Isaac Phillips' home last month to anyone on the Lunenburg High School football team.

According to a statement released by the department:

"Based upon our investigation to date, we have not found any conclusive evidence linking any present member of the Lunenburg High school Football team to the hate crime incident reported on November 15, 2013.

"This statement relates only to the graffiti painted on a resident's home and has nothing whatsoever to do with any football game related issues that have been investigated by the School District."

Phillips, an eighth-grader played on the freshman football team at the high school, alleged he had been bullied and harassed because of the color of his skin.

He and his family woke up Nov. 15 to find the phrase "Knights don't need n******" spray painted on the foundation of their home on Chase Road. Lunenburg's team nickname is the Blue Knights.

His family said he had been targeted before, including having his cleats doused in water and thrown in the trash and his bike tire slashed.

It was also determined this was not the only time the N-word had been used. School officials determined it was used in two separate football games between Worcester South.
