Human remains found in Texas last December have been identified as Taylor Pomaski, the 29-year-old girlfriend of former NFL player Kevin Ware, law enforcement officials said. Nearly six months after the remains were discovered in Harris County, the Institute of Forensic Science positively identified them as Pomaski’s, according to Fox 26 Houston.
Pomaski was last seen at a house party on April 25. Kevin Ware, who played two seasons in the NFL, Ware was considered a person of interest in Pomaski’s disappearance. He has not been charged in connection with the case as of this time, according to authorities.
“The investigation is still open and active and homicide investigators are diligent on bringing this case to a close,” senior deputy Thomas Gilliland told NBC.
At the time of Pomaski’s disappearance, Ware was out on bond on an unrelated charge.
The U.S. Marshals Service arrested Kevin Ware in June on a bond violation after he failed to appear for supervision earlier in the year. The ex-football player initially tried to evade capture and was apprehended after a brief car chase.
Coby DuBose, an attorney for Kevin Ware, said at the time that his client had been cooperating with authorities on the Pomaski case.
“He’s told the police everything that he knows and he’s led them through his house. He’s let them in his home, and that’s really all we’re going to say about that,” DuBose said.
