Last year, human remains were found in Texas, which have been confirmed to be those of ex-NFL star Kevin Ware's missing girlfriend, ten months after he was named a suspect in her disappearance.
Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences said the remains found in the north Harris County on December 10 were confirmed to be that of Taylor Pomaski's, according to reports.
“The investigation is still open and active and homicide investigators are diligent in bringing this case to a close,' Harris County Sheriff's Office Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland told sources.
Taylor was last seen at a house party in April last year before her disappearance. Her boyfriend, who is a former Washington Football Team player Ware, 41, had been suspected of murdering her after he was arrested in June on unrelated charges.
Ware has since been in jail at Montgomery County Jail, north of Houston.
Ware and Taylor, who had been dating for a year, had reportedly been fighting at the house party before she disappeared in April last year.
Tim Miller, the founder of Texas EquuSearch, the missing-person search group reported that the confrontation had turned violent.
“This certainly is in no way going to have a happy ending,” Miller told reporters last year.
Ware, who has a criminal record dating back to 2007, was arrested nearly two months after her disappearance in June by US Marshals after his failure to appear for supervision.
He was arrested and charged about a week before Taylor's disappearance after he was allegedly found with cocaine, methamphetamine, and a loaded AK-47.
Ware remained in custody at the Montgomery County Jail on a first-degree felony charge a third-degree felony charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
Although he had not been charged in connection with the murder, prosecutors still claimed that he was a suspect.
Ware's lawyer had previously told sources in June last year that they had no prior knowledge of Ware being considered a suspect in Taylor's disappearance.
“That's the first time we've seen that,” attorney Coby DuBose said. “That filing is the first time that it's been suggested that he is a suspect.
“He's told the police everything that he knows and he's led them through his house,” DuBose continued. ‘He's let them in his home, and that's really all we're going to say about that.”
