Seminole Co. deputy dead in apparent murder-suicide

The Osceola County Sheriff's Office has confirmed the death of a Seminole County deputy in what it's investigating as a murder-suicide.

Osceola County deputies say Deputy Daniel Carrero, 40, shot and killed Mistie Reynolds, 33, before turning the gun on himself at a Speedway gas station, located on east Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, in Kissimmee on Friday just after 6 p.m.

Deputies spoke with a store employee who said they found two people dead in a car behind the gas station.

Carrero was given an award by Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith in July 2015 for helping the department catch a burglar.

Kim Cannaday, with the Seminole County Sheriff's Office, says Carrero was a 16-year veteran and was recently moved into the Seminole County Sheriff's Office Digital Forensics Unit.
