UNION TWP. — Two people were found dead of an apparent murder-suicide in a vehicle off the side of Glen Este-Withamsville Rd. in Union Township Tuesday night.

Police were dispatched to the 4000 block of Glen Este-Withamsville Rd. near Shayler Rd. Tuesday night around 7:17 p.m. for reports of a vehicle off the road.

When they arrived, police discovered 33-year-old Jeneriliz Isa Mary Hernandez, of Batavia, and 36-year-old Billy Rodriguez-Albaladejo, of Batavia, both suffering from gunshot wounds.
