A convicted steroids dealer who recently met with NFL security officials and gave them names of players he said bought steroids from him was found shot to death in his home in Plano, Texas, police said.

Early yesterday morning, Plano police made a welfare check and found 35-year-old

David Jacobs

and 30-year-old

Amanda Jo Earhart-Savell


Police said both had been shot to death.

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 anabolic steroids with intent to distribute.

Hank Hockeimer,

Jacobs' attorney, told the Dallas Morning News that Jacobs met with NFL officials on May 21 and gave them names of players he said bought steroids from him.

Hockeimer declined to say which players bought steroids. But Jacobs had publicly said he sold tens of thousands of dollars worth of performance-enhancing drugs to former Dallas Cowboys player

Erie County District Attorney

Frank Clark

calls Buffalo Bills running back

Marshawn Lynch

the "principal suspect" in an alleged hit-and-run accident, saying the player was in his vehicle when it struck and injured a pedestrian.

What's unclear, Clark said, is whether Lynch was driving when the SUV struck a woman crossing an intersection in downtown Buffalo before speeding off early Saturday.

Saying that any passengers in the vehicle might include Lynch's teammates, Clark warned it is important for them to step forward.

"I'm not saying how we know it or who they are, but they know who they are, so we'll just see how this plays out," Clark said.
