A hammer-wielding deranged man went on a bloody rampage in a suburban New York home, killing his mother, sister and another woman, according to reports.
Bobby Vanderhall, 34, was charged with murder in the deaths of the three women after police found him sleeping in a car nearby. He also was charged with trying to kill a fourth women.
Lynn Reichenbach-Vanderhall had recently kicked her son Bobby out of their home on Long Island after he became increasingly violent, the New York Post reported.
He’s accused of flying into a rage when he showed up at the house around 2:15 a.m. Saturday and discovered the doors locked.
“He went to the garage. He obtained a large hammer, Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick, head of the Nassau County Police Homicide Squad. “With this framing hammer, he broke through the basement door.”
The Post quoted police as saying that Vanderhall attacked his mother in the living room. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
