The sheriff said Osteen tried to kill himself shortly before midnight on New Year’s Eve. His family removed him from life support Sunday.

Mascara said Pacheco, after learning of Osteen’s death, took her own life. She said Osteen and Pacheco shared a 1-month-old son.

“Words cannot express the tremendous loss we all feel after losing these two members of our sheriff’s office family,” Mascara said in a statement. “As sheriff, I saw these two deputies as young, ambitious and a great compliment to my already amazing group of professionals. To the general public, and sometimes even myself, it’s easy to view law enforcement as superhuman … but let’s not forget that they’re human just like us.”
