Man who shot himself after double murder dies

LIMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) – Deputies say the man who shot his estranged wife and the man she was with before turning the gun on himself has died.

Shortly before 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Cattaraugus County Sheriff Timothy Whitcomb says 42-year-old Kimberly Podolski returned to a mobile home with her boyfriend and another friend on Nichols Run Road in the Town of Carrollton, which is just outside of Limestone, to pick up some of her belongings.

Deputies say her estranged husband, 38-year-old Daniel Podolski, was home, which Kimberly was not anticipating. Authorities say Daniel shot his estranged wife’s boyfriend first. The other friend who accompanied Kimberly and her boyfriend to the mobile home managed to escape.

After that, deputies say Daniel killed Kimberly before shooting himself in the head.

Daniel was taken to Hamot Medical Center in Erie, PA, where he died on Friday.

The name of Kimberly’s boyfriend has not been released. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
