Mashpee Man Charged in Connection with 12-Year-Old Hyannis Murder Case

On the 27th of February 2011, Todd Lampley, a Hyannis father of young daughters, was shot dead through a window while watching a basketball game on television. Nearly 12 years later, a 40-year-old man from Mashpee has been charged in connection with the homicide. The man faces charges of murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and will be arraigned on Monday at Barnstable District Court, according to Cape and Islands District Attorney Robert J. Galibois.

The charges follow an investigation conducted by Massachusetts State Police Detectives and Barnstable Police Department. Assistant District Attorney Russell Eonas said, “At this point in time, there’s no other information to release,” but more details are expected to be revealed at the arraignment.

The Mashpee man implicated Lampley in the 2007 shooting death of 18-year-old Jacques Sellers on General Patton Drive during a 2010 trial. Lampley denied any involvement in Seller’s killing and was never charged, but the suspect claimed that Lampley indicated shortly after the shooting that he played a role in the crime.

Lampley had a criminal record, but friends and neighbors remember him as a good guy. “Even with mistakes in our lives, we don’t deserve to go like this,” said Maurice Anderson, who had known Lampley for about a decade.

The murder of Todd Lampley shocked the Cape Cod community, and this recent arrest offers some hope for justice.
