Remains found in Texas ID’d as missing girlfriend of former NFL player Kevin Ware

Remains found during a search in the Houston area in December have been identified as those of Taylor Pomaski, the former NFL player Kevin Ware’s missing girlfriend, authorities said Saturday.

The identification was made by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, Harris County Sheriff’s Office Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland said via email.

“The investigation is still open and active, and homicide investigators are diligent in concluding this case,” Gilliland said.

Pomaski, 29, was last seen on April 25, 2021, at a party at her home in Spring, Texas, the sheriff’s office said. Her disappearance was described as suspicious.

The remains were found Dec. 10 at a site in northern Harris County that had been identified during the investigation, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said at the time.

Ware, a former tight-end for the San Francisco 49ers, was questioned about her disappearance in June, authorities said. The sheriff’s office has not named any suspects or persons of interest.

The former player has been in the Montgomery County Jail north of Houston for 10 months, according to inmates’ records. His residence is in the nearby spring.

Ware was detained without bail after allegedly violating the terms of the bond in a case involving charges of drugs and weapons unrelated to the disappearance, according to the NBC-affiliated KPRC in Houston.

In a June lawsuit seeking to have his bond revoked, Montgomery County prosecutors described the athlete as a suspect in the Pomaski case, but that term has not been used by leading investigators in the Harris County case.

In December, Ware’s lawyer, Coby DuBose, told the KPRC: “This application is the first time it has been suggested that he is a suspect.”

“He has been cooperative,” the lawyer said at the time. “He has told the police everything he knows and he has led them through his house.”

DuBose did not immediately respond to a request for comment Saturday.
