Pomaski’s remains were discovered when investigators and Texas EquuSearch combed an unidentified location in northern Harris County
HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS: Texas officials identified the remains of Taylor Pomaski, a woman who has been reported missing since May 2021. Pomaski was the girlfriend of ex-NFL player Kevin Ware, according to Harry County Sheriff’s Office senior deputy Thomas Gilliland.
The remains, found in a search in northern Harris County in late 2021, belonged to a 29-year-old woman, Gilliland confirmed in an email he sent to PEOPLE. He also said that the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences officially determined this.
The lead MP wrote in his email, “The investigation is still open and active, and Homicide investigators are busy bringing this case to a conclusion.” According to KPRC-TV, MPs have said that in connection with the Pomaski case so far no suspects were arrested. The cause of death, the results of the toxicology report and other official statements have yet to be disclosed, according to the outlet.
The outlet said in June 2021 that Pomaski’s family had reported that she had been missing since mid-May of that year. The 29-year-old’s family told authorities and officials they suspected their daughter was in danger.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said Pomaski was last seen on April 25, 2021 having a party at her home on Stallion Brooks Lane in Spring, Texas. Investigators appear to think Pomaski may have been the victim of foul play. Pomaski’s father, Stephen Pomaski, said during an interview with ABC-13 that the family realized she hadn’t spoken to Taylor since April. They became aware of this on Mother’s Day.
He told the news channel: “It hit us early in the day. We haven’t heard from her in a week and a half, two weeks at this point.”
On the other hand, Kevin Ware, ex-NFL player and friend of Taylor Pomaski, was arrested in Montgomery County in April and charged with double possession with intent to supply a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm, a felon.
Five days before Pomaski’s disappearance, on April 20, 2021, the former San Francisco 49er was released on $23,000 bail. Ware was arrested a second time on June 11 for failing to appear in court and report to the parole board. As reported by KPRC-TV, a judge ordered Waren to be detained without bail. In December 2021, Pomaski’s remains were discovered when investigators and Texas EquuSearch combed an unidentified location in northern Harris County.
Investigators could not immediately identify the remains, but believed they were connected to Pomaski’s disappearance. According to inmate records, Ware is currently in the Montgomery County Jail.
