Authorities have identified Taylor Pomaski, the missing Texas girlfriend of former NFL player Kevin Ware, whose remains were discovered in December.
Pomaski, 29, was last seen at a party at her residence in Spring, Texas, on April 25, 2021, and was identified as the remains by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
“The investigation is still open and active and homicide investigators are diligent on bringing this case to a close,” senior deputy Thomas Gilliland told the outlet in an email.
The remains were discovered in north Harris County on Dec. 10 as authorities searched for signs about her sudden departure, according to the sheriff’s office.
Pomaski was living with Ware, a former San Francisco 49ers tight end, when she went missing. During a bond hearing for an unrelated gun and drug case, prosecutors named Ware as a suspect in her disappearance. Ware has not been charged in the disappearance of Pomaski.
At the time, Ware’s lawyer, Coby DuBose, stated that the former athlete was cooperating with authorities.
“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.
