NY man kills mother, sister, 3rd woman with hammer

Fitzpatrick said Vanderhall had a history of "emotional issues" and had on two occasions been taken from his mother's home to a medical center.

"He came to kill mom and the sister because his mother had kicked him out of the house."
Police have charged 34-year-old Bobby Vanderhall in the killings of his mother, 58-year-old Lynn Vanderhall, his sister, 29-year-old Melissa Vanderhall and a family friend, 29-year-old Janel Simpson, said Nassau County Det.

A fourth lady survived the strike and is hospitalized.

According to the woman, Bobby was very angry when he knocked at the door and no one opened it. "With this framing hammer he broke through the basement door of the residence".

Police said Vanderhall then found his mother in the living room and started to bludgeon her with the hammer. She too was bludgeoned to death using the hammer.

Vanderhall, who police described as more than six feet tall and at least 230 pounds, was arrested within two miles of the house after police found him asleep in a auto. The fourth woman who was also present at the home was also injured and suffered a fractured wrist and contusions.

According to police, Lynn Vanderhall had an order of protection against her mentally troubled son. She is in stable condition at a local hospital.

Denis Simpson said his daughter, Janel (pictured, March 2016), had worked late as a secretary at Northwell Health and then went to her friend's house to hang out.

It was not immediately known if Vanderhall has an attorney.
