 DALLAS (AP) -A convicted steroids dealer who claimed to have sold drugs to pro football players killed himself, the Dallas County medical examiner said Friday.
Plano police found David Jacobs, 35, and Amanda Jo Earhart-Savell, 30, dead of gunshot wounds Thursday in Jacobs' Plano home.
The medical examiner said Jacobs suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the abdomen and the head.
Authorities said Earhart-Savell was shot several times, but they issued no ruling whether it was a suicide or homicide.
Plano police officer Andrae Smith said it may take several days before they know exactly what happened to her. The investigation is consistent with a murder-suicide, ``but we never rule anything out,'' he said.
Earhart-Savell was a professional fitness competitor.
Police found the bodies when they went to the house after relatives of Earhart-Savell expressed concern about her whereabouts.
Jacobs met recently with NFL security officials and gave them names of players he said bought steroids from him.
Jacobs was sentenced to three years probation and fined $25,000 in May after pleading guilty last year in federal court in Dallas to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute anabolic steroids.
Jacobs publicly identified former Dallas Cowboy Matt Lehr as one player who bought drugs from him. Lehr's attorney, Paul Coggins, has said the player passed NFL drug tests since he was suspended for four games during the 2006 season.
Lehr also played for Tampa Bay and Atlanta.
