"IRVINGTON, AL — Mobile County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Lori Myles said the sheriff's office received a call around 9:30 a.m. Saturday for a possible homicide/suicide. When sheriff's officers arrived at a Cook Avenue home in Irvington, they found Edward Earl Goodson and Joyce Goodson lying in their driveway, dead.
"Myles said the Goodson's neighbor had walked over to the couple's home, found the bodies and called her husband, who then called 911.
"Sheriff's deputies located the bodies between two cars that were parked in the driveway, according to Myles.
"Myles said deputies believe the shooting happened Friday night, because reports indicate the bodies had been laying there for a while.
"Myles said it appeared that Edward Goodson shot Joyce Goodson then turned the gun on himself."
