NFL Dealer Found Dead
According to ESPN.com, 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 dead in his home in Plano, Texas on June 5.
Plano police made a welfare check and found 35-year-old David Jacobs and 30-year-old Amanda Jo Earhart-Savell dead. Both had been shot. Jacobs, who had been sentenced to three years of 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, had told police that, “The kinds of people I know about could put a bullet in the back of my head.” It looks like that might have proven true.
Anabolic steroids have several side effects including liver damage, cardiovascular damage, blood pressure problems, increased erectile dysfunction, impotence, irreversible breast growth and atrophy or shrinkage of the testicles. It’s just so ironic that these athletes are using drugs to become more “manly,” and meanwhile the drugs cause some of the most unmanly side effects imaginable.
But most of all, it’s disturbing that some people are willing to kill for them.
