PLANO -- Convicted steroids dealer David Jacobs, who recently agreed to tell the NFL which football players received banned substances he manufactured, was found dead in his Plano home this morning.

The body of a woman identified as Amanda Jo Earhart-Savell, 30, and a gun were also found at the home.

According to this (http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/2008/06/05/convicted-steroids-dealer-david-jacobs-found-dead-in-his-home/)guy, TV station TXCN claims they were a double homicide. This is not supported (http://www.txcn.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/localnews/tv/stories/wfaa080605_wz_jacobs.157e3e1.html)by the link he provides:

PLANO — Convicted steroids dealer David Jacobs and ex-girlfriend Amanda Jo Earhart-Savell were found dead in Jacobs' home Thursday morning, Plano police said. Both had been shot.

The bodies were found by police in Jacobs' home in the 6800 block of Honey Creek Lane following a frantic phone call just after midnight from Earhart-Savell's parents, who were concerned about her welfare.

Police would not speculate on who was responsible for the deaths.

He had only named one NFL player, but had agreed to reveal several others. I wonder how many were Cowboys, since he was working out of Dallas?

He gave more than 1 name, he gave several, but only one person has had thier name in the press...
I am sure there is foul play, but we will find out soon enough.

DALLAS -- The Dallas County medical examiner says a convicted steroids dealer who claimed to have sold drugs to pro football players killed himself.

Plano police found David Jacobs, 35, and Amanda Jo Earhart-Savell, 30, dead of gunshot wounds on Thursday in Jacobs' Plano home.

The medical examiner said Friday that Jacobs suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the abdomen and another to the head. They didn't say more about Earhart-Savell's death.

Plano Police Officer Andrae Smith says it may take several days before they know exactly what happened to her but can't assume that it was a homicide.

Jacobs met recently with NFL security officials and gave them names of players he said bought steroids from him.

Wait a second. Who shoots themself in the stomach before shooting themself in the head? That just doesn't add up.

My question is how they could reach a conclusion so quickly? This is not NCIS or Bones it takes more than a day or so to do a proper autopsy(sp).

This seems like a rush to get the case closed to me.

What's the autopsy going to reveal that wasn't at the crime scene? The CSI guys with the evidence there, could've made the determination in a matter of a couple of hours...

-OR-

They expect foul play, but don't want to tip their hand just yet.

If he has gunshot residue on his hand and his prints are on the gun they could make that determination. My guess is that he was losing his girl for the 3rd time and roided a little. Not too hard to determine where the shots came from and who had what with splatter on them.

After that I have two theories. a) he shot her and his first thought was "oh sh@t" I better make this look like someone came after us and shooting myself in the stomach will make it look like it and keep me alive(dumb move) ...eventually shooting himself in the head.....or b) he wanted her to feel sorry for him so he shot himself in the gut first to get her attention and when it didn't work he shot her and then himself in the head.

This adds to the theory

People who know the couple say that Mr. Jacobs was jealous and possessive of Ms. Earhart-Savell. Mr. Jacobs had previously told The Dallas Morning News that their nearly yearlong relationship had been marred by allegations of cheating by both of them.

That is why you do a blood analisys because there are things you can't see. Hence the autopsy. If they let cases just go from what they can see with the nakkid eye then a lot of cases would not be solved. Was he given a small amount of a drug to where you can stage suicide? There is no way the blood test are back yet.
