HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. A man with a history of "emotional issues" used a hammer to bludgeon his mother, his sister and another woman to death in his Long Island home on Saturday, police said.
Authorities said the three women were found dead inside the Vanderhall's Hempstead, New York, home of "blunt force trauma" at about 2:15 a.m.
A fourth woman survived the assault and is hospitalized.
Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick, commanding officer of the Nassau County police homicide squad, told Newsday that Vanderhall's mother had recently kicked him out of the house.
"When he came here last night and it looked like the doors were secured, he became enraged," Fitzpatrick said. "He went to the garage. He obtained a large hammer. ... With this framing hammer, he broke through the basement door."

(Hey! Someone had to do it!)
Are things really getting worse, or are we just more aware of this now because of the Internet?
Hempstead is a bad neighborhood.
For me....the thought of eating carrot cake would give me emotional issues. I shudder at the thought of putting carrots into a desert. Though nothing that would cause me to resort to a framing hammer or unlock my gun safe.
He was board and nailed it...
First Schanade O’Connor makes a video in the full whirl of mania, then Charlottesville Rally happens, now we hear about this.
When is that next Solar Eclipse due?
Not that there’s any connection.
Do you smash it over people’s heads?
Where do you stand on zucchini bread?
I think it was the confluence of forces that resulted in state mental hospitals being closed in the 1970s.
Protected by a silver spoon?
Note to self :
If ever needing to kick someone out of the house be sure to be locked and loaded at all times thereafter.
Time to ban hammers
We’re just more aware. And there are more people in the world than before.
I’ve come across some old newspapers with some horrible grisly stuff in them:
Chicago Daily Tribune - Sep 11, 1882
Sam Hazel, Who Whipped a Child to Death, Sent to the Penitentiary for a Year Less then a Century.
Anna, ILL., Sept 10 - At about 10 o’clock last night the jury in the Sam Hazel murder trial rendered their verdict, after being out some five hours, and the brutal child-murderer was sentenced by Judge D. M. Browning to the penitentiary for ninety-nine years. The trial occupied a week of the Circuit Court’s time at Jonesboro, and much interest was manifested in it by people of all classes. It was clearly proven that Hazel whipped the child unmercifully with a cowhide riding-whip, and then kicked the little ?-year-old innocent from room to room until she was dead. He held back all who attempted to interfere by presenting a revolver at them. The Sheriff as soon as the sentence was delivered immediately removed the prisoner to Chester Prison, fearing mob violence.-—http://www.unioncountyilmuseum.com/genealogy/newspaper-clippings
The typical “bad seed”. Women, be careful who you allow to impregnate you. Of course, he could be completely unlike either his father or mother which wouldn’t be unusual.
