Two St. Lucie (FL) County Sheriff's Office deputies have reportedly taken their own lives.

Sheriff Ken Mascara announced the deaths of Deputy Clayton Osteen and Deputy Victoria Pacheco on Tuesday.

Mascara said Osteen tried to kill himself shortly before midnight on New Year's Eve. His family removed him from life support Sunday, WPTV reports.

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