BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The Irondale Police Department is investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide between two people who were dating.

Police say they responded to a residence in the 300 Block of Meadows Drive at the Colonial Village at Trussville Friday morning at approximately 9:15 a.m. after a coworker of on of the deceased requested a welfare check.

The Jefferson County Coroner’s office confirmed on Monday the deceased to be 52-year-old Jennifer Lee Salvadori of Irondale and 51-year-old Billy Code Jewell of Springville.

Salvadori is said to have “sustained a gunshot wound injury due to an assault.” Jewell, meanwhile, sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the Coroner’s office.

When police arrived on scene, they found the two dead inside the home.

Note: Colonial Village at Trussville is located in Trussville, but the complex has a Birmingham address and is the Irondale City limits.
