"JACKSONVILLE, FL — The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is investigating an apparent murder/suicide after an estranged couple were found dead Wednesday inside an apartment on the Southside.
"A relative found Lori Ann Sallas, 42, and ex-husband Daniel Curt Sallas, 43, dead inside the woman’s apartment at the Elements at Belle Rive at 10010 Belle Rive Blvd., police said.
"The relative went looking for Lori Sallas because he hadn’t heard from her in a while and authorities at the complex let him into the apartment to check on the woman, said Sgt. Dan Janson.
"Officers responded to the scene about 12:40 p.m. and found a gun in the apartment along with the bodies, Janson said.
"Daniel Curt Sallas has been arrested twice in the last two years on domestic-violence charges. The two were recently divorced but had been seeing each other on and off, police said.
"The incident is under investigation but it appears Daniel Sallas shot his former wife and then himself, according to police.
"Janson said it looks like the shooting happened sometime in the 24 hours before the two bodies were found."
