Florida's WBBH reports that a Lee County paramedic is the victim of a murder suicide.

Lisa Forde was identified along with her husband Winselsio Forde and their 13-month old child Caleb Forde after deputies found their bodies in their Lehigh Acres home.

WBBH reports that Forde's husband had been charged with domestic battery in 2009 and cocaine possession in 2007. He was reportedly stressed over not having a job and his wife working overtime.

Lee County EMS coworkers have donned a black stripe across their unifomr badge in honor of their fallen member.
