"Andrew was stabbed 17 times, but it was only one who killed him, and the woman he protected was happy."
The mother of a Huntingdonshire man who lost his life because of knife crime has spoken openly about the day her world has changed forever.
Helen Frazier's son, Andrew Hasler, 28, died on January 8, 2017, after he stabbed 17 times at his home in St. Ives .
When the Cambridgeshire Police rang Knife Amnesty she said:" As a child, had my Son Andrew the fascination of taking things apart and reassembling them. He once filled a lawnmower with gasoline and accidentally set it on fire. He did so many things, I knew that one day he would get in trouble, but what happened to him on January 8 was not one of my worries.
"I saw Andrew last alive on Christmas Eve 2016 when he told me how he fell off a ladder, but what he did not tell me before was that he was two stories up and stuck at his fingertips, and He was saved only thanks to someone who saw him on CCTV! "He was a helpful, good-natured, generous young man."

" They told me Andrew was dead. "
" I did not believe it, though I knew well, long before they arrived, it was true.
" I went through the motions and called his father, his brother, my parents. I only remember that I said "He is dead". I did not know what had happened.
"When the family liaison officer reached one of the first things I remember, she told me that Andrew was an innocent victim and I was very shocked that they knew in that short time there were defense wounds.
" From that point on, I ran on autopilot. Things had to be done. I had to arrange a funeral. The money I was going to spend one day on his wedding should now be spent at his funeral.
"Later I'm told that your son came in to save someone else – in one minute you're proud and in the next one you're wondering why he did that? He could still be here. that there would never be a happy ending for someone and you would not wish that to anyone.
"Andrew was stabbed 17 times but it was only one that
"It's still not real." Andrews grave but
"I remember being in the supermarket and suddenly I hit it knives were bought. I remember trying to avoid the knife. Then at the checkout I wanted to ask why he sold them. Who would expect a 40-year-old to buy three knives with that intention?
He fought to save someone's life and lost his fortune
"Think about the consequences. Do you want to face 25 years – possibly the best years of your life – in prison?
"Think about the parents, brothers, sisters, family, friends, the whole community. It is not necessary that it should not happen.
