Bobby Vanderhall, 34, was arrested on three charges of murder in the early morning deaths of his mother, Lynn Reichenbach-Vanderhall; his sister, Melissa Vanderhall; and Janel Simpson, who was visiting the home. He described his daughter and her friends as fun-loving women and said they were even planning to go to Cuba in the fall.
Nassau County Police responded to a report of an assault at a home on Perry St. near Crowell St.in Hempstead, where they found four victims of an attack. The friend was able to escape, however, and call for help.
Melissa and Janel Simpson, 29, were also pronounced dead at the scene. His mother had recently filed for an order of protection against him. Investigators say Bobby Vanderhall had been kicked out of his house by his mother and was homeless, causing him to become enraged.
The survivor, who wasn't identified, was hospitalized in stable condition.
'He went to the garage, he obtained a large hammer.With this hammer, he broke through the basement door'. "Beautiful, outstanding people, that's what I want the world to know", said a family relative, Juanita Johnson.
Candace Murray, 29, fought back and ran out of the house, CBS New York reported. Her daughter was a physician's assistant.
'These girls don't give problems, these girls just have fun, ' Simpson said.
The police described Bobby as more than six feet tall and at weighing least 230 pounds. He is scheduled for arraignment on Sunday and is now being kept in Mineola in Nassau County.
