Where is Kevin Ware? Human remains found amid hunt for missing GF Taylor Pomaski
Remains of Pomaski, who has been missing since April, were found in northern Harris County ditch, with Ware identified as a person of interest
Taylor Pomaski death update: Kevin Ware, 41, who played for Washington and San Francisco, was indicted by a grand jury Thursday, July 28, said District Attorney Kim Ogg.
He has been charged with murder and tampering with evidence, specifically a corpse, in the death of Pomaski, the district attorney’s office said.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office confirmed on December 12 that they had found human remains in a ditch. At the time of reporting, it's not confirmed who the remains belong to, but Sheriff Ed Gonzalez strongly believes they could be of Taylor Pomaski, who has been missing since April 2021. The 29-year-old was last seen at a party with her boyfriend, ex-NFL star Kevin Ware Jr., where the duo got into a fight and the player is a strong suspect in the case.
Ever since the disappearance of Gabby Petito, missing person cases in the US have become major talking points, even leading some to dubbing media coverage 'missing White woman syndrome'. That's because while people of almost all races and nationalities go missing, very few make the headlines the way a White woman does. In the aftermath of the Petito case, her family has turned her social media accounts into a platform for missing people.
Pomaski's disappearance didn't quite make the headlines like that of Petito, but now the case has taken a rather shocking turn. After months, it appears she died, leaving the big questions of how and who is responsible? According to the police, it could be Ware, 41. Those suspicions stem from reports the couple got into "a violent fight" on April 25, the last time Pomaski was seen.
Where is Kevin Ware?
At the moment, the former San Francisco 49ers player is incarcerated at the Montgomery County jail. He's been there since June 2021, when he was arrested for violating his bond. Ware was arrested in Spring, Texas after a dramatic chase by the US Marshal Service, which ended with them finding drugs and weapons in the car with him. That led to additional charges of intent to deliver a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, both felonies.
We know that Ware was arrested on April 19 for drug and weapon charges, and was released after he posted the $23,000 bond. Then on April 25, he hosted a get-together at his Klein-area home, where he got into a fight with Pomaski. Since then, both Pomaski and Ware were missing. Ware was picked up in June and has since been in jail, but it's unclear where he was in May. Pomaski has been missing since, until the discovery of the remains in December.
Once a promising young player, Ware has played just 16 NFL games in his career, before his lengthy rap sheet forced him to call time. So far, he's not been charged in the Pomaski case, but that could change in the coming weeks. Reportedly, he's been uncooperative with the investigation, as have several others. Ware has been denied bail by a judge, and will therefore remain at the jail for the foreseeable future. He's due back in court on January 11 for plea acceptance, with a trial date yet to be determined.
