SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Sarasota police say the husband of former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris was found dead of an apparent suicide at the couple's home.

Police spokeswoman Genevieve Judge said Tuesday that Harris' husband, Anders Ebbeson, committed suicide.

Officers were called to the home between 7:30 and 8 a.m. Tuesday.

During a news conference at the police station, Pastor William Hild of Sarasota First Baptist Church confirmed that Ebbers had taken his own life.

Ebbers was a Swedish businessman. Hild, the family's pastor, says Ebbers suffered from health issues in recent years.
