Bobby Vanderhall, Hampstead Man Bludgeons Mother, Sister, Third Woman To Death

A hammer-wielding deranged man went on a bloody rampage in a suburban NY home, killing his mother, sister and another woman, according to reports. The fourth woman who escaped has not been identified.

Nassau police investigate a triple homicide on Perry Street in Hempstead on Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017.

Bobby Vanderhall, 34, allegedly took a large hammer from Lynn Vanderhall's garage on Perry Street in Long Island around 1.15am and broke through a basement door. He took a framing hammer from the garage, broke into the home and attacked the group of women, according to police.

Police said Vanderhall then found his mother in the living room and started to bludgeon her with the hammer.

He found Melissa and a second friend of hers on the staircase and hit them too.

Vanderhall found the last victim, 29-year-old Janel Simpson, in an upstairs room.

Candace Murray, 29, fought back and ran out of the house, CBS New York reported. She was hospitalized to be treated for wounds from the attack.

Lynn Reichenbach-Vanderhall taught young children at a day care center.

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.

Fitzpatrick revealed Bobby was homeless after he was recently kicked out from his house by his mother because of his troubling behavior and emotional issues.

Nassau cops are searching for a "person of interest" in what they described as the targeted killings of three women in a Hempstead home.
