DALLAS (AP) -The autopsy report on convicted steroids dealer David Jacobs indicated he had more than five times the amount of testosterone in his system than allowed by standard sports testing.
The Collin County medical examiner's office on Tuesday released the autopsy report on the 35-year-old who was found dead in his Plano home along with his former girlfriend, Amanda Earhart-Savell, on June 5. She was a professional figure competitor who was killed by Jacobs, authorities said.
The autopsies showed he died from a contact gunshot wound to the left temple and right abdomen. Earhart-Savell, 30, was shot seven times: once in the back of the head, once in the right upper back and five times in the chest. Police found a.40-caliber semiautomatic Glock 22 near Jacobs' body.
The autopsy report said Earhart-Savell had no steroids in her system but did test positive for amphetamine, which her family said she used to prepare for an upcoming bodybuilding competition, The Dallas Morning News reported in its online edition Tuesday.
``It's clear that testosterone increases aggressive behavior. That's why teens tend to exhibit risk-taking. When you make the level super-physiologic, there's a wide range, but in general there's an increase in aggressiveness,'' Richard J. Auchus, associate professor of internal medicine and endocrinology at U.T. Southwestern in Dallas who studies steroids, told the newspaper.
Jacobs was sentenced to three years probation and fined $25,000 on May 1 after pleading guilty last year in federal court in Dallas to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute anabolic steroids. He met twice with NFL security officials and gave them names of players he said bought steroids from him.
Jacobs said he sold tens of thousands of dollars worth of performance-enhancing drugs to former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Matt Lehr in 2006 and 2007. Lehr has also played for Tampa Bay and Atlanta. Lehr's attorney has denied his client used banned substances after a four-game suspension in 2006.
Plano police spokesman Rick McDonald said results are still pending for gunshot residue to determine if Earhart-Savell fired a weapon and the results could take months.
