The Monroe County Sheriff's Office confirmed the victim's identity from the Penfield homicide last week.
Deputies say 52-year-old Arnold Ford Jr. killed his wife, identified as 51-year-old Wendy Ford, and then severely injured his mother, 75-year-old Florence Ford, in the Town of Riga before ending his own life.
On Halloween, deputies responded to a welfare call at the Collingsworth Drive home around 10:30 a.m. where they found Wendy Ford dead inside.
Deputies then responded to Leibeck Road in Riga as part of the investigation and found Florence Ford unresponsive.
Throughout the investigation, deputies tracked down Ford Jr. near Erie, Pennsylvania. State Police in Pennsylvania found him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a vehicle.
The sheriff's office says Ford used a .40 caliber gun to shoot and kill himself. It turns out, the gun was legally owned and registered to Ford's wife.
Deputies tell News10NBC a hammer was used to beat Florence Ford who remains at Strong Memorial Hospital in guarded condition.
