Just 2 weeks after blowing the whistle on several professional football players for using performance enhancing drugs... a former steroids dealer was found shot to death in his home today.

Plano police found both David Jacobs and fitness model Amanda Jo Earhart-Savell dead in Jacobs home this morning.
Both had been shot.
Right now, investigators aren't saying whether the deaths were a double homicide or a murder-suicide.
Just last year, Jacobs pleaded guilty to charges of selling illegal steroids.

His attorney says that Jacobs met with NFL security officials on May 21st to give names of players that he claimed brought the drugs from him.
