Angry Anderson claims son was trying to help accused killer

Angry Anderson says his son Liam wasn’t actually best friends with his accused killer Mathew Flame, but had been trying to help the man when he died.

“They were not best friends,” a devastated Anderson told The Daily Telegraph.

“He wasn’t even in Liam’s main group of friends.”

The rock star said he had raised his children to do the right thing and look after people.

“Liam was trying to help him,” Anderson said.

“He was such a decent human being.”

Flame, 20, is alleged to have punched and stomped Liam Anderson, 26, to death in northern Sydney early on Sunday while under the influence of MDMA, marijuana and alcohol.

He has been charged with murder and is in custody, due to next face court on January 29.
